For a vintage-inspired leather athletic sneaker with some vertical, Standard Fair‘s Sport Ripple is here to fulfill your wildest vintage-inspired leather sneaker with some vertical based dreams.
Handcrafted in Maine, the sneakers come in two different high-quality leathers – an olive full-grain Italian leather and a rust Swedish vegetable tanned suede. Constructed with a stitched welt, these sneakers are just that much more versatile, and strong. Finished off with a Vibram Mini Ripple sole, you get some height, a fun texture, and a unique twist on a classic style.
Not to be morbid, but do expect these sneakers to outlive you, with the leather becoming better by the day and that aforementioned welt being easily recrafted. And as a reminder of the quality and craftsmanship you are investing in, these sneakers come with a set of travel bags, a 1oz. tin of Standard Fair Leather Cream, and removable, full-length foam insoles.
Available for $340 at Standard Fair
