Meet the Gustin Trainer. Inspired by retro athletic footwear, these sneakers are a perfect balance of style and comfort. Built from the finest materials and made by the best craftsmen in the world, this versatile shoe is an essential addition to your casual wardrobe.
For our Trainer launch we wanted a leather that struck the perfect balance between comfort and durability all while being down right beautiful. We settled on all Italian hides. The grain is tight giving the shoe a super soft and smooth feel. The leather weight is slightly heavier than on our other sneakers to give the shoe a bit more structure and heft. It is dyed a deep navy and a touch of shine livens it up. To promote breathability, the toe and sides of the sneakers are perforated. The upper is lined with a smooth grey leather that offers the perfect complementary contrast. Tonal stitching and laces plus a white outsole with a hexagon pattern contribute to the sleek look. Whether you're hitting the gym or cruising around town, the Gustin Trainer will be your new go to shoe.
The Gustin Trainer is our contemporary take on the classic running shoe. The retro-style panelling, perforations on the upper, low profile and gripped rubber sole contribute to the sporty look. Cushioning along the tongue and ankle provide a plush feel that will keep you coming back. 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 sleek Gustin shape. An Italian-made gripped rubber sole is cemented internally to the upper. A leather-lined removable footbed is embossed 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.
