The Mellor II Espresso Sneakers
A pair of simple unisex sneakers are a wardrobe staple nowadays, because a pair of classic sneakers (or trainers or pumps depending on how old you are) can dress down a suit yet elevate your style. The Mellor II Espresso Sneaker is a pared back take on the classic sneaker in a rich dark coffee colour comes complete with the Mellor signature resoleable blake stitch construction. The world's first resoleable trainer, which is one of the many ways GORAL take their environmental responsibilities seriously. One of the flaws in sneaker construction when it comes to the environment is that once the sole has worn down that is the end of their lifespan and need throwing away. But like a good pair of shoes can be resoled and last you a lifetime, so can Goral sneakers who offer a lifetime guarantee*
Their traditional method of crafting footwear is the same as it was over 80 years ago when Franciszek Goral first began crafting footwear in Sheffield. With the highest quality leather and suede used, over 200 separate stages are completed for each piece of footwear to pass the GORAL standard. All of their production happens on British soil which guarantees that GORAL meets the standard that is expected of 'Made in England' footwear.
Craftsmanship goes into even the construction that you can't see but plays a key part in the comfortability which can only be felt when wearing. Each pair has moulded rubber insoles are shaped by your feet over time, for added comfort and support. And an internal layer of felt absorbs sweat, keeping your keep dry and protecting the shoe from sweat damage.
