1980s US Military Trainer - Natural White Linen
Better than Chucks! This US Military Trainer, reinvented by Reproduction of Found, was the official training shoe adopted by US Army in the 1980s. Rep of Found sought out the European factory for these once white-label sneakers, with the goal of modernizing the manufacturing process. The EVA insole has been thickened to improve cushioning, making the shoe lighter than it looks. Rep of Found subbed in high-quality linen from a long-established Italian fabric manufacturer is used for the upper in place of the old-school canvas upper and a soft twill for the lining. The rubber used for the sole is mostly natural and is flexible and durable. All these pieces come together for an elevated trainer.
