Product details

The EDR 78 unsex sneaker comes in a selection of colors- icicle, zinfandel, tango red, light grey, black, sulphur and monaco blue but new colors keep arriving! The smart and cool look goes well with casual clothing, like jeans, shirts, trousers or skirts. Unsurprisingly, this shoe is a killer and sells out quickly.
