The Proper Sneaker Low Top Sustainable Men
A tribute to the very first sneaker invented for stealthy movement, The Proper Sneaker is a subtle, classic shoe to complete any outfit. Constructed from sustainable leather, they are scratch and water resistant making feel and look better the more they’re lived in.
Opposite of their hard-bottomed counterparts, the name sneaker comes from the ability of the wearer to quietly “sneak up” on someone or something. The rubber soles allowed this. They were invented in the 18th century and didn’t even have a definitive right or left shoe. You could wear each one of the set on either foot!
