Joseph Malinge only selects noble materials. During the tanning, the hides are put in large turning drums where fatty material is added. These oils penetrate the heart of the hide to nourish it and make it extensible. Just like human skin, leather needs to be pampered to avoid breaks and resist creases. This leather has been chosen for its authenticity. It has an aged aspect, worked, and imperfect, which gives it its charm.
The Audace are ultra-wide for your comfort. They are easy to put on, and hold the foot well with each movement. The rubber sole is high. It allows you to insert a cork insole for insulation. With these sneakers your feet do not feel tired after walking all day.
The soul of sportswear
The aged leather of Audace, gives it an “old school” look. These sneakers can especially be worn with a wide jacket or jeans. The ‘House of Malinge’ was inspired by the Oxford shape to obtain a balance between casual and chic.
