In a day where shoe heads are paying more for less and brands struggle to regain their reputations for quality, Greats Brand has kicked things off right. Founded by Jon Buscemi and Ryan Babenzien, Greats offers a super high quality sneaker thats handcrafted in Civitanova, Italy (aka “shoe valley”) using old world techniques that have been used for generations and at a price point that is unmatched. Which brings us to the Royale. Quite possibly their best shoe in the arsenal, the Royale features Italian Margom soles, plush footbed a lining done in full grain Veg Tan calf leather (a hide commonly used for luxury bags) and 100% waxed cotton laces. The sleek toe box matched with a clean silhouette and quality leather uppers makes this one you’ll want to add to the rotation. Check out the video below and pick up a pair now at GREATS.
