For the most part, the shoes that I wear every day can be divided into sneakers or dress shoes. Sure, there are specialty shoes like hiking boots, fishing shoes, etc., but I’m talking about the shoes that are worn to work, formal events, etc. NobleSole has sought to blur those lines between sneakers and dress shoes by creating stylish dress shoes with the comfortable feel of a sneaker.
NobleSole first hit the market by debuting the Windsor Sneaker on Kickstarter last year, a dress shoe-sneaker hybrid that was incredibly popular. This time around they’re back with a full like of sneaker-dress shoe hybrids which include The Oxford, The Wingtip, The Monk Strap, The Loafer, The Chelsea Boot, and a line of matching belts. One benefit of a shoe like this is it enables you to pack a single pair of shoes when traveling instead of a pair of sneakers and a pair of dress shoes. It saves lots of space over time.
The sole of a traditional dress shoe is rigid, uncomfortable, and isn’t ideal for every day wear yet somehow the same design has persisted for centuries. NobleSole‘s sneaker-dress shoes are stylish enough to be worn with your best suit to work every day but they’re just as comfortable as a sneaker. The latest line of shoes from NobleSole are available for purchase on Kickstarter where they’ve already surpassed their fundraising goal several times over. Here’s a look at some of the shoes:
Step into the office Monday morning ready for business and step out Friday evening ready for the weekend – all in the same pair of shoes.
We have designed our undercover shoes to be versatile enough that you can literally wear a sneaker to work and still look professional. Come the weekend you can comfortably stroll through the park in your favourite pair of jeans. Who says you can’t mix business and pleasure?
Early backers on Kickstarter can pick up any pair of the shoes for $189 CAD which translates to roughly $151 USD at the moment. Compared to your average pair of dress shoes, these are extremely affordable, and they’re a lot more comfortable.
