Exotic sneakers are designed for buyers on the hunt for luxurious shoe choices – men who love pure leathers and demand shoes that blend aura of classical shoes with the sportiness of conventional sneakers. The answer lies in sneakers handcrafted with difficult-to-procure animal skins. With their luxe appearance, these bespoke sneakers address any man’s search for comfortable shoes that assertively declare their bold aesthetics.
From bringing a stylish statement to the streets to becoming the most athletic type of footwear, the evolution of exotic skin sneakers can be traced back to the 18th century when they were called PLIMSOLLS – rubber shoes with no particular design for right or left foot. Exotic mens shoes gained admiration during 1892 when US-based Rubber Company started mass manufacturing of rubber sneakers covered with canvas. These were termed Keds. 1924 witnessed the emergence of this footwear choice around the globe owing to a German man named Adi Dassler. Handmade sneakers using rare leathers is the more artisan, less formal but more glamorous twist on these conventional plimsolls.
