Beckett Simonon adds sneakers to its footwear line

On Your Feet is all about that new shoe feeling- from the first time you open the box until they’re worn into the ground. Sometimes we’ll sift through the constant Air Jordan releases to bring you the gems other people will leave on the shelves, and sometimes we’ll slide on reclaimed leather loafers from Prague, but we’ll always focus on comfortable shoes with appealing and creative aesthetic. So lace up your new kicks and stand on the precipice of adventure, where will we go together?

Some shoe brands are resigned to one side of the footwear aisle. Either a designer is totally invested in the highest quality dress shoes, or interested in creating casual sneakers. Not Beckett Simonon though. The already accomplished dress shoe maker has expanded into sneakers, and it’s definitely starting off on the right foot.

The process of finding a factory to produce Beckett shoes to the right standards of quality and ethics has been a rocky one for the manufacturer. After initially settling on a workshop in India, it was discovered that the way the family-owned business treated employees was subpar, so production was moved to Colombia.

After two releases with the Bogota-based manufacturer, Beckett Simonon is doubling down with both a premium line of dress footwear, and a collection of premium quality sneakers.

The premium formal shoes are built around the Goodyear Welt, a sole construction that’s one of the most time-consuming, but also allows for a number of noticeable benefits. Not only does the shape and design of the seal keep water out excellently, but the soles are easy to replace when they wear out.

As an added value to their comfortable, sturdy construction, the shoes are available in a wide range of color and style options, from loafers to chukkas and everything in between.

The sneakers are based around a Rapid Blake construction, which still offers decent protection for your feet from the elements, but isn’t easily resoled. They are, however, much more comfortable right out of the box, and Simonon Shoes has improved the design further with a supportive, absorbent layer of cork between the insole and the outsole.

Available in black, white, and burgundy leather, the Beckett Simonon sneakers take lessons learned from the dress shoes and employ them on a classic silhouette. When paired up with high quality materials and a nice low price point, you can buy from both collections and feel like a winner.

Pre-0rders for both the sneakers and dress shoes are available on the Beckett Simonon store page.
