Step up your Sneaker Game

To be the best in any field, you need to constantly adapt and be one step ahead of the game. We are delighted to announce the launch of our new Patina sneakers, each pair hand painted for a truly authentic touch to your off-duty wardrobe. Though our Portuguese cobblers are one step in the past with their traditional craftsmanship, they are two steps ahead with their dedication to modernising the art of shoemaking with new and distinct finishes.

The real magic here is that as each patina is individually painted by hand, no two pairs will be alike, making this a one of a kind sneaker. Choose from either Camel, Grey, Bordeaux, Blue, Olive and Brown shades of Patina.

Pelops was the apprentice of the Greek god of the sea, Poseidon, a skilled chariot racer and the mythical founder of the original Olympic Games. He had been given an ivory arm from the Gods, which was the supposed secret to his success, but no need for god given strength when you have the 68 by Pelops sneakers on your feet. These majestic sneakers are the winning touch and will easily win over any crowd.

The only thing we enjoy about office attire becoming more and more casual is that we have to step up our sneaker game. And by improving your footwork, you’re bound to be leaps and bounds above the rest. The 92 by Ivo is a masterful adaption of the dress shoe sneaker, featuring a rich camel patina in an Oxford cap toe with a sneaker.

Strategy goes hand in hand with tactics with the 92 by Jan, using a cunning combination of a dress shoe with a sneaker sole. A strategically crafted derby sneaker with a tactical, rich dark brown patina to head straight for the victory line.
