Startas are a throwback to a time when sneakers, like most things, were made by people who mastered the subtleties of their craft. It still takes one hour— from start to finish—to create each pair of Startas, using only traditional techniques and vintage, manually operated equipment. A craftsperson who took great pride in his or her work made this shoe for you. So, when you get your new pair of Startas, hold them in your hands and look closely. You’ll notice that they display the subtle nuances of a product that was touched by human hands. It brings a smile to our face too.
