DAS SNEAKER - Cognac
This variant is currently sold out
This sneaky so-&-so our latest creation and just might be the most luxurious and minimalistic sneaker EVER created.
It certainly sports the finest leather ever worked into a sneaker - with rich, waxy, Dutch Pull-up and sumptuous calfskin lining. And it enjoys the same “secret sauce” bauhaus design features that facilitate ridiculous comfort in all our shoes (“secret” means we’re not going to tell you… sorry).
But the sole is where the most evolution has taken place - with additional EVA cushioning for greater bounce and height, and a lip curving over the toe for added protection and a classic 1970s sneaker look.
We cap it off by embossing the long-lasting, rubber outsole with our homage to the VOYAGER and PIONEER space missions… because who knows when you’re next going to meet ET?

Why Pull-up Leather is so amazing...
"Pull-up" is a full grain*, generously waxed leather, so called because, when pulled, stretched or heated, the oils and waxes cause the colour to migrate and become lighter in certain areas. This video illustrates nicely.
Using a pull-up leather means that little marks and scratches will appear on the shoe as you wear it, creating a beautiful and unique patina. But what’s doubly gorgeous is that simply massaging the leather will cause the marks to fade away and the original appearance of the leather to be restored.
*Full grain leather is the highest quality there is, made from the topmost layer of the hide, and including all of the natural grain. Its fibres are strong and durable, but nonetheless breathable. And the surface is varied and unique, with a variety of the natural imperfections and marks that tell the story of the cow’s life. As it ages, it burnishes and beautifies, developing a gorgeous patina and unique appearance that in turn tells the story of how the shoes have lived. This leather only becomes more beautiful and more comfortable with wear.
