This pair of tennis trainers has blind eyelets and a gum sole.
Our factory has proven to be extremely skilled with this shell cordovan production. Given their background experience with other exotic skins (Stingray, Crocodile, Ostrich), they are able to competently work with the complex nature and small skins of Shell Cordovan. Their craftsmanship and finish is exquisite. Each pair is individually cut, sewn, lasted and finished.
Epaulet Trainer run true to size. If you typically wear a 10D in dress shoes, then we recommend ordering a US10 in these. For a comparison to our dress shoes, this size would correspond to a 10D in the Alden Aberdeen last, a 9.5D in the Alden Barrie or Tru-Balance last, and a 9UK in most Carmina lasts.
Many of our customers also tend to wear the same size in these as they would in a Converse Chuck Taylor - which can be a useful comparison for getting fitted locally.
For European customers looking at the EU size, we also recommend purchasing your typical size.
Like any quality leather sneaker, these will break in and stretch in both the width and the height if needed. You should not size down as a result, but you can feel confident in the eventual fit if the trainers are a touch tight upon the first try-on.
