In 1892, Milton Florsheim began a legacy. It was then that he and his father began designing and selling shoes with an “exclusive look desired by well-dressed men.”¹ Florsheim & Co. later gained preeminence by providing shoes to troops during WWI and revolutionizing the footwear industry with its specialty shoe stores. And the Florsheim brand remains a key innovator today, as seen with the new classically-styled, hybrid Crossover Lace To Toe Sneaker.
Florsheim’s Crossover sneaker is a dress-versatile offering for modern professionals. This comfort-oriented sneaker pairs attributes of a traditional dress shoe with a sole that won’t quit.
Functional Sneaker Sole
Slip the hybrid Crossover on, and you’ll notice its breathable textile lining and carefully crafted bed.
Right under your foot, on the interior, is a fully cushioned, removable Comfortech footbed (made with Ethylene-Vinyl Acetate or EVA). The Strobel Construction shank is responsible for added flexibility and an athletic fit. The SupaCush midsole contributes cushioning and energy return, reducing the fatigue felt in your feet and knees. The rubber Flexsole is a full rubber sole with grooves for flexibility, natural movement, and comprehensive traction.
Traditional Florsheim Look
The Crossover sneaker’s upper is soft natural leather. The smooth toe box and the parallel laces mimic the look of a traditional dress shoe. The lightly perforated upper is a play at vintage brogue style — perfect on sneakers for the office.
Among the Crossover sneaker’s five color schemes is a pair for any wardrobe, whether you prefer classic hues (cognac, black, taupe) or those that push the edge of convention a little (bright white, two-tone navy). And if your feet land on the wider end of the spectrum, the Crossover is available in a wider width.
Florsheim Crossover Sneaker: Your Every-wear Shoe
$100 is not an outrageous price for a durable hybrid shoe that’s equally appropriate in professional and leisurely settings. Match em with a pair of khakis and a dress shirt or your favorite jeans and a tee; the Crossover will not disappoint.
Even after 125 years, Florsheim continues to innovate signature-styled shoes that last. The Crossover sneaker’s comfort is a luxury we think you’ll choose day after day.
