Here we have the brand new Artwoods. They are based on a retro cycling shoe / trainer look and feel. Several things we were aiming for on these, was a casual summer shoe, that would work coloured jeans, could be worn on the scooter , but also look neater than just a trainer.
To me these are a Weekend shoe.
The cord on them is more needle cord, not jumbo on the Rawlings, Elliots, & Deightons. The leather middle part gives the shoe, a little bowling show feel.
The sole is just like the Luca, Fresco & Ricco trainers we have done before, which is based on a late 60s early 70s construction
We would suggest stick with size, unless you are broad. I normally take an 8 in our shoes, but the front of the shoe, because of construction doesnt stretch like our a soft leather, so in these I have gone up a size. Its a little hard to explain here but the ricco trainers we just lauchned are made on the same ‘Last’ , but the leather on them expands more at the front where I am widest, where as these will retain their shape more.
Sole Man Made
Sizes UK6 to UK12
We use the following size conversions. Please be aware that different designs are designed to be bigger than others. We try our best on the product page to mention sizing.
Please Note that are shoes are made mainly in Spain & Portugal and Euro to UK Conversion means that the shoes normally come up a little big. The reason is that a 43, is more like 9 and 1/4.
