Leather sole with GS branded TPR forepart and heel piece for improved durability and grip.
Even though it is prepared like a vegetable, did you know that the aubergine is actually a fruit? The traditional colour of aubergines is deep purple. We happen to like deep purple a lot (the colour not the 70s rock band that is), so we decided to make a shoe to commemorate it, the Madison. Just how do you achieve a deeper shade of purple though? Well we’ve hand-dyed the leather upper - five times no less. Oh and we noticed that aubergine fruits don’t have laces. Well neither does the Madison.
