Mercer Amsterdam, the premium brand which creates products with original silhouettes has created its Vegan Racer which is sold exclusively with Tessuti. To build their ever-growing collection MA has gone to the running tracks of the world to inspire their racer silhouette, taking cues from their more athletic ancestors to develop this unique and extremely modern take on what a sneaker can be. Coming in a white colourway and featuring a nylon and suede upper, these trainers also feature a tonal lacing system and feature the ever popular Vibram sole for maximum durability and comfort. Details include; white and grey colourway, nylon upper with suede overlays, tonal flat lace fasten, padded heel support, thick cushioned midsole, grip sole and branding to the heel, side wall and tongue to complete. Is this a running sneaker? Absolutely not, but it’s important to remember its not trying to be one either. This is a shoe that’s made for comfort, with the style conscious in mind that want to impress either on the casual weekend front, or paired with tailor trousers and white tee, this could make the perfect work sneaker for the coming summer months. Are they expensive? Absolutely. Coming in at £225.00 these are nearly as expensive as Nike’s Air Zoom Alpha Fly NEXT % (think about all the tech that went into building those!) and these are merely a simple everyday trainer, so what justifies such a high price tag? Well the word ‘premium’ of course, and like all things worth having that both perform and look brilliantly simplistic, it’s worth paying the money. So do yourself a favour and go get ’em!
