AE's original marketing copy for the shoes:
We rediscovered this exceptional shoe in 2009 when a long-time customer from Los Angeles sent in a pair we had built in the 1950s to have the soles recrafted.
Our play on the original design, which was intended to present a business-style toe while keeping the rest of the foot cool, combines a modern, transparent mesh vamp with a stylized perforated wing-tip toe. This unique pairing brings comfort and formality to these warm weather shoes, making them extremely popular in the South or for the summer in the Northern states. Moreover, the unique combination of leather and mesh (or off white linen if you are channeling your inner Gatsby) makes the Strawfut incredibly light and thereby perfect for men who do their best work on their feet, like renowned symphony conductor Osmo Vänskä, who has a pair in brown and navy.
