Chicago, IL 2018

Norma reimagines the original sneaker silhouette as a hightop, carrying over and advancing details from the first iteration including the crepe rubber sole with new tread and the streamlined laceless tongue slots.

The design takes advantage of flexible suede, allowing a single-cut piece to comprise the shoe’s entire upper. An inside neoprene liner hugs the foot, providing a second layer to the laceless design that keeps the shoe snugly in place.
