We are very happy to now stock Laskaas.
Taking the original Eastaern European gym shoe and adding the layer of premium suede and lining transforms what, after all, was purely a functional shoe in to something else. The same factories that still produce the shoe (there were many in the past, the shoe being the one handed out to school kids to do their PT in back in previous years)are still used, but instead of making yet another replica with canvas Laskaas have added lined suede to the mix. Its a combination that works well with the shape.
Always a much more bulky silhouette, the rugged toe guard and raised sole unit combine with the simple angles of the upper to create a more subsantial shoe than a regular 'plimsole'. The shape is further enhanced by the rigidity brought by the lined suede upper. Finished off with a gold brand stamp to the heel, this is a summer shoe that gives bulk and comfort without resorting to over emphasis.
