N° 921 details

No. 921 represents a nod to the tradition of the legendary athletic shoe that came to enjoy immense popularity as a leisure shoe in the 20th century, starting in the U.S. and Great Britain. From there, it went on to conquer the world. Trainers are now considered modern, all-around footwear, and are readily worn to all kinds of different occasions. Assembled using the Goodyear welting production method, this anthracite men’s trainer in our collection is an exclusive take on this popular design.

Homage to an icon — Goodyear-welted trainers with a hand finish

No. 921 boasts a multi-part basic shaft cut with closed seven-eyelet lacing as well as a lightweight rubber sole that ensures wearing comfort, even over long treks. Meticulous production and a premium upper define the high quality of this anthracite trainer: Supple, gleaming smooth leather adorns the entire shaft, marking a welcome departure from traditional trainer design.

Meanwhile, the stunning combination of patina and perforation attests to the love of detail that went into this shoe’s construction. The side pieces feature fine perforation, while the toe cap and counter, as well as individual shaft piece edges along the lacing and the opening at the top of the shoe, boast an extraordinary hand finish. This consists of light-and-dark shading on soft calf that transforms each shoe into a true one-of-a-kind piece.

This anthracite men’s trainer is truly versatile in terms of styling options: From informal business occasions through to sporty leisure looks, No. 921 works wonderfully with chinos as well as jeans.

Trainer

Trainer

‘Trainer’ is a catchall term that refers to athletic shoes. These types of shoes were first produced in America, in 1860. Known for their flexible rubber soles, these comfortable shoes were originally created for track and field events, the requirements of which continue to influence trainer design. Trainers have been popular since the 1960s, and are worn on an everyday basis. Today they are available in all kinds of forms and colours—the trainers in our collection, for instance, are special, premium models.

Athletic Last

Athletic Last

The athletic last is slightly wider than that used for classic men’s shoes. It is relatively wide at the ball of the foot and features a lightly rounded toe. A gently sloping instep and wide heel ensure perfect comfort. This last’s relatively straight arch at the heel and high top make it most suitable for average to wide feet.

Soft Calf

Soft Calf

Our soft calf leather is a predominantly vegetable-tanned, fully dyed leather upper from Italy whose open porosity makes the colours of subsequently applied dyes really pop. An elaborate hand finish makes this soft calf leather even more exquisite. One-of-a-kind in our collection.

Finish

Hand Finish

The calfskin is dyed at the tannery, but it is the intensive work that is done with the leather by hand at the manufactory – the hand finish – that creates the exciting contrasts and shadows that give this Italian calfskin its unique look.

General information about our trainers

Handgefertigt

Handcrafted

Some shoe brands churn out low-quality, glued-together models in mass quantities on conveyor belts. Not us: Our premium shoes are meticulously handcrafted from the finest leathers. You can see — and feel — the difference.

Goodyear-Welted

Goodyear-Welted

The gold standard when it comes to shoe manufacturing. Goodyear welting is a painstaking process that involves stitching the shaft and outsole to a thin strip of leather. Shoes made this way are extremely stable, durable, breathable, and easy to repair.

Construction

Construction

These shoes consist of roughly 65 separate parts. They took about 210 steps to assemble. We rely upon premium materials and traditional production methods to ensure that our footwear is of the absolute highest quality.

Delivery Content

Of course, our focus is on your new pair of shoes. But to underline our passion for our products, we enclose a few extras in your shipment. We hope that sparks your excitement about your new footwear.

Delivery
Shoebox

Shoebox

Our passion for our products is reflected in their packaging. All of our shoes come in an elegant black shoebox emblazoned with the SHOEPASSION.com logo. Said shoebox is easy to open, thanks to a special opening on the side, and comes with a note on our philosophy.

Spare Shoe Laces

Spare Shoe Laces

Should you find yourself in need of new shoelaces, look no further: this pair of Goodyear-welted shoes comes with a spare pair of shoelaces. Made of 100% cotton and treated with wax, these shoelaces are of the very best quality.

Shoe Bag

Shoe Bag

These shoes come stored inside two shoe bags, packed into a shoebox. Shoe bags are a great way to maintain their condition—they protect your footwear from soiling and scratching. They also let you transport your shoes in style.

Shoe Care Guide

Shoe Care Guide

Goodyear-welted shoes last far longer than mass-produced models. A dedicated cleaning and care routine is an indispensable part of keeping your shoes in mint condition. An introductory guide to shoe care is included with your order.

SHOEPASSION - ONE STEP FURTHER

Made in EU

While most of our peers in the shoe industry are still unable to guarantee shoes that are »made in the EU«, we’re able to prove that our shoes are just that. We use leather from France and Germany, manufacture our shoes in Spain, and run distribution and logistics in Germany—our shoes are 100% made in Europe.

Environmentally sustainable

For many companies, all that matters are the profits; they fail to take notice of the disastrous conditions under which hides are taken in Bangladesh, or shoes are manufactured in China. We turn instead to traditional European tanneries and Spanish craftsmanship, to the benefit of man and nature alike.

Pricing

Our promise: since you’re purchasing directly from the manufacturer, you’re spared the typical high margins. You’re also spared the additional cost of paying for a brand name. Thanks to our advantageous wide reach and our low cost structure, we’re able to offer sensationally low prices.

Transparency

From the provenance and treatment of the leather we use, to the conditions in our Spanish factory, to delivery with our logistics partner, we don’t leave any stone unturned. We provide copious, transparent information on every step in our supply chain.

Our team

SHOEPASSION.com was founded by a pair of shoe lovers, and each and every employee focuses on satisfying our shoe-loving customers. Whether it’s graphic design, sales, marketing, editorial, or customer service, we handle all aspects of our business internally, ensuring our total control over all processes. We’re also owner-managed.

Your feedback

Your opinion is important to us; that’s how we define our business. If you’d like to express your satisfaction with our products and services, let us know. You can read reviews from other customers as well as experts in the shoe industry on the SHOEPASSION.com site. Your satisfaction is our top priority!

The values we live by

Lots of brands are quick to conceal the production methods behind their products, as well as the origins of the materials they use. We, on the other hand, have nothing to hide. From the very beginning, our products have been »Made in the EU«, in the classic sense. As such, we treat both our fellow man and the natural environment in a way that’s ecologically sustainable and ethically responsible. Each step on our supply chain is entirely transparent for you to see—that’s a promise we’re happy to stand by.
