sisam : leather lace ups in cocoa


or make 4 interest-free payments of $84.50 AUD fortnightly with More info

Thoughtfully crafted with minimal seams and stitches, the Sisam lace-up has velvety inners and rubber soles to softly cradle your feet, fastening with waxed cotton laces for a snug, no slip fit. The shoe's minimal styling and tapered sole produce a refined profile which won't weigh you down, and transitions through the seasons with or without socks. Please note : dancing may ensue.

Sisam's summer collection for the maker is hand made in Japan from fine, supple Japanese leather paired with natural rubber soles. These exquisitely hand finished, poetically simple shoes are coveted for their rich depth of colour and gentle, foot-loving forms which never bully feet.

The sisam lace ups are a generous fit made with the softest leather.
