The cage-like structure on the Gallow, is a nod to the chain-link fence that surrounded the baseball diamond I grew up playing on at Cole Park, in Chicago; and the materials I used pay homage to the broken in leather on A2000 baseball gloves.

Waxed calfskin Nappa, burnished calf suede, double-bonded neoprene, laser-cut vamp, copper debossed heel logo, burnished gunmetal hardware.

Norwegian double-stitch welt. Lightweight, EVA outsole. Flat, high contact bottom increases traction. Natural motion grooves increase flexibility. Deep-contoured last increases support. Cushioned insole.
