StarWars Black & Silver is a very confortable shoe with cork platform, that adjust the foot by black shoelaces. It’s inspired in the 40's shoes - practical shoes in a classic design renewed through the use of platforms. The color palette is based on the dark tones (black, blue and brown) that coordinate with each other as well as mixed with natural and vibrant colors in a feminine and delicate way. The cork and wood platforms in natural and black tone are a fundamental element and transversal to all the female models - where the main objective is the symbiosis between comfort and elegance.
The sporty model StarWars, was inspired by the retro sneakers of the 1940s, resulting in a contemporary look with the combination of colors and materials.
