Our most comfortable Neoprene shoe yet! Our new 'Sunny' silhouette is a run-around boot done radical with the pull on comfort and stretch-ability of Neoprene, made sport-luxe sharp with the contrast of an all new exaggerated trainer outsole. We love the proportions of this boot which slim the ankle and define the foot in a really sophisticated way.
The upper pattern took a number of rounds of development and has been carefully considered to include details like a leather binding strip through the heel for easy pull on comfort and carefully executed upper pattern that has minimal stitch lines for a purely modern look. This boot slips on like a sock and is a one piece upper material that is a very thick handle but so comfortable to wear. The clean lines of the silhouette make it very versatile shoe.
The stretch on this material makes it an extremely forgiving upper, making it great for both narrow and wide feet. The boot will sit snuggly over the foot no matter the shape in it. The throat is intentionally cut narrow so you should open it up and pull it on like a sock. Definitely orthotic friendly and features removable innersole so you can change them over easily to your own if you need to. Length is true to fit. You can check out our size guide here.
All black everything! For our first explorations of this upper, we wanted to create a really convicted palette of solid black to let the silhouette do the talking. Seen here thick handle black Neoprene (like scuba diving suit material) finished with thick leather tab through centre back for stability. The handle and grain on this material is soft to touch and lovely to wear. If you have had neoprene shoes from us before you will know how flexible and comfortable they are! Set over injected black rubber outsole designed for hard wearing and long life durability.
Like a trainer! AKA with everything. We love playing up the architectural qualities of this shoe with workwear inspired pin tuck pants and manstyle shirts for the studio. It is about leg length proportions - 7/8 cropped flares look great with these shoes as they expose and slim the ankle. We also LOVE these shoes with dresses, especially contrasting long line linens and floaty shapes with the heaviness of this outsole. As always it's about the juxtaposition of something quite feminine up top to play up to the more masculine lines of this shoe. Radical and Yes!

A little. This is a textile upper so will have natural stretch of around than 7 - 8% depending on the amount of pressure applied to the upper. As a general guide the upper tends to mold to the shape of your feet. These shoes have also been set with a removable innersole so you can switch in your orthotic, but the best news is that in addition to the removable inner sole, the midsole has been double lined with a 5mm memory foam padding making them unbelievably comfortable for all day on your feet wearing. Someone say clouds?!
Being highly durable Neoprene, these toe tappers are so easy to care for! Sponge them down, and let them dry in a cool dark place out of direct sunlight and watch them magically return to box fresh greatness.
