These new Epaulet Tennis Shoes are to sneakers what Grey Poupon is to brown deli mustard. Handcrafted in Portugal, they’re made out of leather from Italy’s famed Gruppo Mastrotto tannery, and feature a baby-butt soft kidskin glove leather lining, and an Italian-made Margom rubber sole, which is both internally cemented and externally stitched. And, like the attainable luxury of Grey Poupon, they’re about $200 less than any comparable EU-made shoe on the market ($225 a pair, versus $400 and up for Common Projects, Acne, Our Legacy, et al). Three
flavors colors are available.
