Byron & Leach Luxury Buttoned Sneaker

The Buttoned Sneaker is the first design of the brand proposal 'Byron & Leach', created by four Mexican graphic designers: Fernando Loza, Marlen Cavazos, Mayahuel Morales & Isael Martinez. The design, inspired by the combination of the 50s rebel style and 60s gentlemen elegance, seeks to give to the sneaker a duality of use, both for party and for work. The shoe is bespoke handcrafted by a Mexican shoemaker and features a piece of Mexican silver jewelry in the backstay; unlike other sneakers this design incorporates buttons instead of laces for a more dressy and stylish look.
