You have been asking for more gum sole sneakers so here you go. The Sienna-Green Gum Sole Low Top is a perfect pairing of a red-tinged brown upper and a classic Margom gum sole. Throw in an emerald green heel tab and you have an irresistible sneaker.
These Gustin low tops are made out of vacchetta leather from one of the finest tanneries in Fucecchio, Italy. We all need a great brown sneaker. It may be the ultimate denim pairing companion. This gorgeous leather is vegetable tanned without any artificial chemicals. It's dyed to a glowing brown color that has subtle hints of red. At just 2 ounces, this leather is amazingly supple and breathable. The emerald green heel tab offers up some panache and separates it from your average brown shoe. A Margom gum sole and tan calf skin lining provide tonal complements. Brown stitching and off white laces keep things clean. Pair these with our new chino shorts and you are set.
Take one look at the design and shape of our low top and you know it captures everything perfectly. Our sneaker is devoid of extraneous adornment with the exception of the green leather patch that adds a subtle pop. The extremely low profile toe box and the ultra clean tonal stitch lines offer up a sleek look . Beauty comes from the perfect curve of the eye row, the slightly built up collar, and the off white cotton laces. If there's one pair of shoes that will pair with almost any article of clothing, this is it.
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. Binding clean finishes edges. 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.
