bob white

Sale price¥23,980

An impressive design with a velor switch on the toe and heel, and a rounded toe. The gum sole that rolls up to the heel area increases stability around the heel, similar to driving shoes. Adding to the look, the leather and color-matched shoelaces give it a unisex feel. A pair of shoes that should be worn by both men and women.

Mikey last [Wise E]: Relaxed

If the size of sneakers you usually wear is between 26.5 and 27.0 cm, please choose <26.5 cm>. *I think it can be worn even by people who usually feel that 27.5cm is too big.

ABOUT " bob white "

Origin of name

The toe and heel parts were made of thick velor, and it looked like a bobbed head, so I named it [Obappa].
This velor switch also serves as reinforcement. There is no core material in the toe, and the core material in the heel is also small.
We aimed for a soft look and soft feel.

Eliminate waste and make it simpler

Keep the bobbed upper design as simple as possible.
On the smooth leather parts, we minimize the visibility of the stitches by hiding them or connecting them.
The simple structure makes the soft material stand out even more.

Soft smooth leather

Smooth leather has a strong image of being hard, but the bobbed smooth leather is soft.
We use leather that is comfortable to the touch, with an al dente texture that is neither too hard due to tannins nor too soft due to chrome.
It's not as good as socks, but it puts as little stress on your feet as possible even when it bends.
The finish is semi-aniline, giving it a glossy and transparent feel, allowing you to enjoy the natural atmosphere of the leather and how it changes over time.

Relaxed foot feel

The curve of the toe when viewed from above is a moderately relaxed curve, and the cross section of the forefoot is designed to be roomy. We try not to make you feel uncomfortable when you put your feet in. Designed to prevent looseness around the instep, ankle, and heel. When worn, the last is tight at the instep and heel, and loose at the toes. This is an original last that the brand is proud of, created through repeated trials with last craftsmen.

The sole looks and feels light

The sole of the bob is made of EVA, just like Mikey.
The bobbed shoes are designed to be soft around the feet, and the soles are purposely made thinner, and the rubber is amber-colored. It looks and feels very lightweight.
The rolled up rubber on the heel suppresses wobbling around the heel, and at the same time adds a little spice to the simple upper design.
