You might recall past mentions of the Spanish footwear company via the 1950s MaTeS Myrna Classic trainers and the handmade 1960s MaTeS Carmel Classic design. Both proved very popular. I suspect these will get people talking, too.

This is an all-rounder, developed in the 1960s (specifically 1967) to take in a variety of sporting disciplines. High performance in the day, but probably not what athletes look for 50+ years later.

But that’s not the market today. This is old-school cool, aimed at people who might look at something like the Adidas Gazelle but also want a shoe that makes them stand out from the crowd. However, the suede upper might limit use right now. Not that it seems to stop people from wearing a suede Gazelle in the winter months.

That minimalist suede upper, in three colour options, is definitely a selling point, finished with contrasting white details, a cushioned construction and excellent breathability. The latter to help with the warmer weather in Spain. A non-slip sole, too.

Like the rest of the range, these are handmade in Barcelona and, as such, cost a little more than your mass-produced trainers. €152 for a pair of these.
