Our guidelines when developing The Sneaker 02: Comfortable, sleek, and versatile.
Let us begin with the overall construction. The upper and the fit are slightly narrower, and together with the lower (2.2cm) Margom outsole, it forms a great-looking silhouette. We added an inner lining and used minimally padding along the side panels to achieve a thin and soft feeling and impression. It was essential for us, and we spent a lot of time developing the toe area. The result: a fairly low, rounded and slim toe part to match the rest of the shoe. One of the most important areas of a shoe to fit well is the shape of the heel. We developed a slightly concave angle to improve the fit and the heel to firmly grip inside the shoe. Inside, we use a removable insole that’s cushion-built with arch support suitable for long walks.
At Morjas, we’re always all about creating classic and timeless products without big flashy logos.
If you know, you know.
We launched The Sneaker 02 in two different kinds of materials, both in leather and suede. We use a full-grain leather sourced from an Italian tannery with a natural graining to add more character. Our soft suede is also sourced from Italy, well known for its rich colour and nap giving it more life.
If we spent too much time on the laces? Yes. We’ve always been obsessed with laces since we believe it’s such a big part of a shoe’s aesthetics. So, we developed a flat lace with quite a lot of wax. Adding wax improves both durability and protects the laces from dirt better over time. It also gives that new, crisp feeling that we love.
