It's been a long time between lace ups ;> We have been exploring ways to make lace up trainers more interesting for some time. In the development of this style, we originally tried a few samples on our 'traditional' flatter sole Saturn Returns trainer last but realised about half way through what we really wanted was more of a wedge inspired chunky look. Re-inventing our Lunar boot wedge unit we have developed Light Years for those days you just want to kick around in your trainers but need to look more put together than that in order to be putting your (literal) best foot forward in life.
The spliced neoprene tongue and collar detail speaks to the softness of styles you might already know and love (think Sunny Boots and The Flex), but re-invented with the frame of the leather facings. We added reflective strips to the back heel and tongue not just for the 90s rave reference, but also for the intentional bike riding and cross town commute situations which we know to be a key consideration for our highly active customers day.
