Today we’re focusing on the Epaulet Tennis Trainer, which is a modern day re-interpretation of the leather tennis shoes of the 1960s, complete with a minimal look, yet upgraded with all of the materials the offer a truly high-end shoe. Hand-made in Portugal using full-grain leather from Italy’s esteemed Gruppo Mastrotto tannery, the leather has a soft finish and sleek profile, low toe box, and perfectly rounded toe cap.
