Black bespoke trainers, an absolute sneaker classic. And the Ashford does not disappoint
We styled them based on the Buckland, our first bespoke trainers. So they have the same retro lines and long facings, inspired by bowling shoes.
The customer wanted a monochrome black trainer so we chose a super soft veg tan leather and gave them a crocodile shield at the back for that subtle touch of luxury. Also, we padded the top line to create that classic trainer soft feel. We used the same leather as the lining which continues the monochrome aesthetic of these black bespoke trainers.
We hand stitched a double welt to the insole to create the foxing (the strip of leather around the trainers) and filled it with light flexible EVA. Then we finished the construction with a durable Vibram sole which is easily repairable any number of times. So the Ashford will last as long as your other bespoke shoes.
