The 421 from MALFROID – a winning number
Malfroid launched its very first sneaker almost two years ago, the 310 : an indestructible and sober runner type shoe.
This year, the Malfroid sneaker family welcomes the 421. A sneaker with a dash of spirit from the sixties – very Beach Boys!
Picture the coasts of California and its beautiful strips of sand along the Pacific, waves of surf, or, elsewhere the waves of city’s asphalt, boldly ridden on a skateboard, longboard, carver, cruiser!
Our 421 is born right out of souvenirs, sensations or flashes drawn from what is most magical in popular culture. We then gave it the ‘Malfroid touch’ : a real versatility and absolute sobriety, so it would be able to fit any style, at all ages.
Put on these new 421 Malfroid and you’ll see, it’s no coincidence : this sneaker scrupulously observes the simple rules that make Malfroid’s reputation: construction, proportion, material.
-We use leather of the same grade and quality as our oxford or derby shoes.
-Nervous, pure lines forming a round, comfortable and robust construction, sewn on a generous and enveloping rubber sole.
This is a minimalist sneaker, simple and beautiful like a haiku, whose shape predates fashions and which will survive all uses.
It is the shoe we would choose for traveling, running, cycling, stretching our legs in the shade of a tree or catching up on lost time. Impeccable on a sports jacket, a fresh polo shirt, a cheeky raincoat, linen, shorts or that loose, comfortable somehow neapolitan suit, for example.
The Malfroid 421 sneaker is casual, smart, stylish. All that in a splendid roll of dice.
