You have been asking for more gum sole sneakers so here you go. The Sienna Gum Sole High Top is a perfect pairing of a red-tinged brown upper and a classic Margom gum sole. Throw on with a crisp pair of raw denim and you are good to go.
These Gustin high 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. The good news: there is insanely beautiful brown leather out there. Let us show you one example today. It starts with the leather, Italian-made vacchetta. This 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. A Margom gum sole and tan calf skin lining provide tonal compliments. Brown stitching and dark brown laces keep things clean. Classic brown high tops are your new best friend.
The Gustin high top pays homage to the now classic sneakers we grew up wearing. Take one look at the shape of our high 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 is in the small details such as the way top of the ankle gently swoops up at the back, the tight arc of the stitching on the heel counter, the perfect diameter of the eyelets. 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. 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.
