There are so many amazing directions to take a classic low top, that we become like kids in a candy store just thinking about it. Switching up leather and sole can create a totally new look. Take the finest vintage blue Italian leather and combine it with a natural Margom gum sole and you have a true stunner.
These Gustin low tops are made out of vegetable tanned mistral leather from one of the finest tanneries in Fucecchio, Italy. It's dyed a beautiful blue that will be sure to capture peoples attention. The surface has a smooth and even finish that just begs to be touched. At just 2 ounces, it's amazingly supple and breathable. A Margom gum sole provides the perfect complementary color to enhance the vintage appeal. The tan calf skin lining peeks out of the inside of the shoe to provide contrast. Tonal stitching and laces keep things clean
The Gustin low top pays homage to the now classic sneakers we grew up wearing. Take one look at the shape of our low top and you know it captures everything perfectly — from the extremely low profile toe box, to the ultra clean stitch lines, to the absence of any extraneous materials. Beauty comes from the perfect curve of the eye row, the slightly built up collar, the small heel tab and the matching periwinkle cotton laces. . Our styling truly captures what we loved about our old sneakers, now done the right way.
Our sneakers are constructed by hand in the Tuscany region of Italy by a group of craftsmen who have been making shoes since 1901. They have perfected their craft to the point where the industry's biggest and best names, including Lanvin, use them for production. All leather is die cut one hide at a time. Single needle stitching is used to construct the uppers. Custom lasting creates the unique Gustin shape. An Italian-made Margom rubber sole is cemented internally and reinforced with 360° stitching to the upper. A calfskin-lined removable footbed is stamped with the Gustin logo. These are time honored techniques taken to the highest level.
Sneakers made in Italy to our quality level, that finally get the styling right and that use only the highest quality materials carry incredibly high price points. The Gustin model allows us to offer you a radically better value.
Gustin sneakers follow European sizing and run slightly larger than some US sizes. If you typically wear a US 9 in dress shoes or boots, we recommend ordering a US 9 in these as well. If you usually wear a half-size, we would recommend you order down to the nearest whole size. If you have tried on other Margom soled sneakers, you should order the same size.
