In development for almost 18 months, Flex is a style we have been dreaming of for even longer. Designed from the same place as our much loved and highly wearable Sunny Boots, only low cut, Flex offers the versatility of a trainer but with the 'sharp' look of a more structured 'work' day silhouette.
Sometimes in summer we need shoes with toe coverage. Whether it's work situations, or all terrain weekend situations, sometimes we just can't have toes out. We also need hybrid shoes that can do all the things - look sharp enough for the cross town commute and active enough for city park walks and those looser half-work-half-day-off days. Taking cues from our most popular hybrid shoe ever, the Sunny Boot, we conceived the Flex shoes as the solution to interesting summer footwear that dosen't require a pedicure.
It took us a number of goes to get the proportions right on the topline, iterations which included cutting the tops off several trail pairs of Sunny boots to get the height and angle perfect. Like Sunny, Flex is still finished with the center back exaggerated pull tab for easy slip on comfort and carefully executed upper pattern that has minimal stitch lines for a purely modern look. This shoe slips on like a sock and is a one piece upper material that is a thick handle but so comfortable to wear. The clean lines of the silhouette make it very versatile shoe.
