Handmade with the attention to detail normally reserved for upper-tier dress-shoes, these urban cycling sneakers come our way from Outlier
, two brands with very harmonious ideas about craft and quality. No surprise, but the construction is precision in action: “The upper is made from two materials and uses only two seams, one to attach the tongue and one to close up the rear … The inner is a double layer of French calf leather, an extremely soft and breathable material. So supple that it makes you want to not wear socks.”
“So supple it makes you want to not wear socks.” That is merchandising poetry you can almost feel. Other perks include the Supermarine Cotton upper, which is water resistant and breathable, and a vegetable-tanned leather outsole with a two piece Vibram sheet-rubber layer for traction. On presale now at Outlier.
