‘Trainer’ is a catchall term that refers to athletic shoes. These types of shoes were first produced in America, in 1860. Known for their flexible rubber soles, these comfortable shoes were originally created for track and field events, the requirements of which continue to influence trainer design. Trainers have been popular since the 1960s, and are worn on an everyday basis. Today they are available in all kinds of forms and colours—the trainers in our collection, for instance, are special, premium models.
The athletic last is slightly wider than that used for classic men’s shoes. It is relatively wide at the ball of the foot and features a lightly rounded toe. A gently sloping instep and wide heel ensure perfect comfort. This last’s relatively straight arch at the heel and high top make it most suitable for average to wide feet.
This shoe’s upper boasts premium, medium-soft and fully-dyed calfskin. The technical term for this kind of leather is "French calf". This type of leather is known for its flexibility, fine texture, and soft grain.
