An icon of footwear

Sustainability at the core

We wanted to create something unique, unlike anything else on the market, which would page homage to the originals with a modern twist and the &SONS DNA. The result is a meticulous mix of traditional fabrics, including raw canvas and cork and, of course, our famous recycled rubber sole - all with high environmental credentials. Our Ecolive Canvas mix is 70% recycled cotton and 30% Viscose, all from certified renewable sources.

Paying further homage to the originals, we have used 100% recycled cork on the in-soles, which featured on the boots of this era. The cork application, hand-distressed canvas and tan accents deliver an authentic aesthetic and look aged straight out of the box.

"Sustainably sourced and complete with the &SONS style and details."

INTRODUCING

We are proud to introduce to you the Baseline Low-Tops! Made from over 70% recycled materials. 

Our Inspiration

Inspired by “The Lords of Dog Town” and the '70s skateboarding scene, we wanted to create a new version of our much-loved Baseline High-tops. We trawled through libraries of images to find photos of these iconic pieces, often seen on sidewalk surfers and half-pipes as genuine sports footwear. 

The Details 

To look forward, we had to look back. We researched the original plimsolls, the shape, curvature and finish and developed a modern-day version. From the tan rubber soles and vintage distressing, these shoes carry all of the heritage hallmarks you’d expect to see from an original ’70s trainer.

ORIGINS

Until the early 70s, skateboarders rolled on wheels made of clay, they were old and limited skaters to minor tricks. In the early 70s, Frank Nasworthy began tinkering with urethane wheels and changed the skateboard world forever. These new wheels allowed skaters to go vertical and defy gravity. Skateboarding blew up. 

Our low-top trainers are inspired by the plimsoles that skateboarders used to wear. With their crew socks pulled high, these trailblazers were part of the sidewalk surfers movement, that changed the course of skateboarding.
