N° 969 details

Soft velours leather in a warm earth tone transforms these Goodyear-welted men’s trainers in a sporty choice for leisure activities. Their lightweight sole features a variety of colors, which integrate wonderfully into the model’s overall dynamic look.

Stylish men’s trainers in khaki for a smart casual look

Goodyear welting is considered the supreme shoe production method, and lends No. 969 its extraordinary fidelity to fit as well as its pleasant flexibility. These khaki trainers are further distinguished by closed seven-eyelet lacing as well as a multi-part basic shaft cut. The upper’s soft velour leather features subtle perforation along parts of the curved shaft piece edges. Meanwhile, the upper’s dark earth shade forms a pleasing contrast against the multicolored rubber sole, which in turn allows wearers to ‘sneak’ quietly, in keeping with the name of this type of shoe.

This Goodyear-welted men’s trainer in khaki is best suited for leisurewear, and looks particularly good with denim, corduroy, and tweed. Of course, No. 969 can also be worn with modern business apparel to casual workplaces.

Trainer

Trainer

‘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.

Athletic Last

Athletic Last

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.

Velours

Velours

Processed velours is an extremely fine, fully-dyed type of rough leather that is taken from the flesh side of the hide. Velours is extremely soft and resistant to soiling. It is easy to care for; regular brushing with a suede brush suffices to keep your velours shoes in good shape.

General information about our trainers

Handgefertigt

Handcrafted

Some shoe brands churn out low-quality, glued-together models in mass quantities on conveyor belts. Not us: Our premium shoes are meticulously handcrafted from the finest leathers. You can see — and feel — the difference.

Goodyear-Welted

Goodyear-Welted

The gold standard when it comes to shoe manufacturing. Goodyear welting is a painstaking process that involves stitching the shaft and outsole to a thin strip of leather. Shoes made this way are extremely stable, durable, breathable, and easy to repair.

Construction

Construction

These shoes consist of roughly 65 separate parts. They took about 210 steps to assemble. We rely upon premium materials and traditional production methods to ensure that our footwear is of the absolute highest quality.

Delivery Content

Of course, our focus is on your new pair of shoes. But to underline our passion for our products, we enclose a few extras in your shipment. We hope that sparks your excitement about your new footwear.

Delivery
Shoebox

Shoebox

Our passion for our products is reflected in their packaging. All of our shoes come in an elegant black shoebox emblazoned with the SHOEPASSION.com logo. Said shoebox is easy to open, thanks to a special opening on the side, and comes with a note on our philosophy.

Spare Shoe Laces

Spare Shoe Laces

Should you find yourself in need of new shoelaces, look no further: this pair of Goodyear-welted shoes comes with a spare pair of shoelaces. Made of 100% cotton and treated with wax, these shoelaces are of the very best quality.

Shoe Bag

Shoe Bag

These shoes come stored inside two shoe bags, packed into a shoebox. Shoe bags are a great way to maintain their condition—they protect your footwear from soiling and scratching. They also let you transport your shoes in style.

Shoe Care Guide

Shoe Care Guide

Goodyear-welted shoes last far longer than mass-produced models. A dedicated cleaning and care routine is an indispensable part of keeping your shoes in mint condition. An introductory guide to shoe care is included with your order.

SHOEPASSION - ONE STEP FURTHER

Made in EU

While most of our peers in the shoe industry are still unable to guarantee shoes that are »made in the EU«, we’re able to prove that our shoes are just that. We use leather from France and Germany, manufacture our shoes in Spain, and run distribution and logistics in Germany—our shoes are 100% made in Europe.

Environmentally sustainable

For many companies, all that matters are the profits; they fail to take notice of the disastrous conditions under which hides are taken in Bangladesh, or shoes are manufactured in China. We turn instead to traditional European tanneries and Spanish craftsmanship, to the benefit of man and nature alike.

Pricing

Our promise: since you’re purchasing directly from the manufacturer, you’re spared the typical high margins. You’re also spared the additional cost of paying for a brand name. Thanks to our advantageous wide reach and our low cost structure, we’re able to offer sensationally low prices.

Transparency

From the provenance and treatment of the leather we use, to the conditions in our Spanish factory, to delivery with our logistics partner, we don’t leave any stone unturned. We provide copious, transparent information on every step in our supply chain.

Our team

SHOEPASSION.com was founded by a pair of shoe lovers, and each and every employee focuses on satisfying our shoe-loving customers. Whether it’s graphic design, sales, marketing, editorial, or customer service, we handle all aspects of our business internally, ensuring our total control over all processes. We’re also owner-managed.

Your feedback

Your opinion is important to us; that’s how we define our business. If you’d like to express your satisfaction with our products and services, let us know. You can read reviews from other customers as well as experts in the shoe industry on the SHOEPASSION.com site. Your satisfaction is our top priority!

The values we live by

Lots of brands are quick to conceal the production methods behind their products, as well as the origins of the materials they use. We, on the other hand, have nothing to hide. From the very beginning, our products have been »Made in the EU«, in the classic sense. As such, we treat both our fellow man and the natural environment in a way that’s ecologically sustainable and ethically responsible. Each step on our supply chain is entirely transparent for you to see—that’s a promise we’re happy to stand by.
