Behind the Design: The Crossover

Behind the Design: The Crossover

Part Business. Part Casual. All Class.

Hybrid dress shoes are here to stay. But what are they exactly?

Hybrid dress shoes are redefining workplace footwear by offering a more casual alternative to standard dress shoes. They take many forms, but typically have the look and shape of a dress shoe while incorporating materials often seen in athletic shoes or sneakers.  Our  Crossover, for example, uses an agile, sneaker-like sole that sits below our premium Italian leather upper. Uniting these functions gives flexibility to your wardrobe, dressing up casual outfits and dressing down formal ones. 

Watch below to get a sneak peek into the design process.



Hybrids thrive in business casual settings, but are certainly not limited to them. We think they pair best with slacks/trousers and a jacket, khakis, denim, chinos, and plenty more. They certainly look great with a full suit and tie, but consider your environment before pairing them together.

With the  Crossover, we've made a product that stands apart from other hybrid dress shoes by using the same premium Italian leather and memory foam cushioning that makes our traditional dress shoes so comfortable.

We also designed this shoe with Steve Nash! And a portion of proceeds will be donated to the Steve Nash Foundation. Watch the video to see the kicks in action down in Venice Beach, CA.
