Executed here in a full leather upper in our classic Journey 2 velcro strap trainer. Featuring easy to wear velcro straps and padding so voluminous through the tongue and top line, it's like wrapping your feet in pillows. Made extra robust with a thicker 2 piece outsole unit designed for extra long wearability.
Double velcro straps tuck the foot in easily over a super padded tongue and throat detail that cushion the foot in the most sublime way. Featuring our unique double edge rand detail around the sole edge (like that previously seen on our Boundless trainers), the upper has been heavily overstitched for genuine 'Back-To-The -Future' moments of radical.
Blue, from an emotional, psychological standpoint, has always represented equal parts calm and joy. Blue Skies, blue Birds, Blue Sea. It's a colour of nature we love. It’s a color that you can rely on. Blue is also the 2020 Pantone Colour of the year and a signature palette of our AW20 collection. Featuring a textured grain finish the handle on this leather is sublime - very soft, but maintains a stiffness for durability and all day wear. We always select a thick handle cow leather for these trainer uppers which are purpose built for every-day, every-day, every-day wear!
The leather lining means you can wear with bare feet in the transeasonal months with full-leather breathability. Fresh silver hardware buckle frames velcro strap detail. Finished with 2 piece outsole that features true white midsole and molded gum rubber outsole for optimum grip that adds cool framing to the upper.

Yes. This is a leather upper / leather lined product, but is a more rigid handle then you might have seen on other shoe. Like all leather shoes will have around 7 - 8% stretch on wearing depending on the amount of pressure applied to the upper.
This is high quality leather upper so it does need care.
Leather is a wonderful material, breathable, durable and beautiful. But without a bit of love it can dry out and deteriorate.
For optimum care, we recommend "Waproo Waterproofer" to protect them from unexpected showers. We recommend spraying monthly on the Full Moon.
Polish your leather shoes around once a month and clean when necessary with a leather conditioner and soft rag to remove any dirt accumulated on your travels.
For extra special treatment, polishing can help renew shoes that have developed scratches or other signs of regular wear. Wax and cream polishes available from a local shoe repairer will breath new life into your beloved toe tappers. Once your newly polished shoes have dried you can re-apply a waterproof spray for extra protection.
