The Tennis Trainer High is a 7-eye design that fits above the ankle. Like the original Tennis Trainer, this recalls the minimal lines of 1960s-era sneakers, but we've upgraded all of the materials the offer a truly high-end product. A tonal form stripe sits in the middle, a padded ankle cuff provides cushioning at the top, and a stitched heel cap gives support at the back.
Produced at our European factory, Epaulet Tennis Trainer High's perfectly compliment the casual side of our collection. Like all things Epaulet, they offer a phenomenal value. We're confident that they are the best product on the market at anything approaching this price. They'll wear in beautifully, and we believe you'll find them to be some of the most comfortable shoes that you have ever worn.
The Epaulet Tennis Trainer High is hand-made in Portugal using gorgeous full-grain leather from Italy's esteemed Gruppo Mastrotto tannery. This leather is stunning in person and has a soft finish and an extremely supple hand. The comfortable last has a sleek profile, low toe box, and perfectly rounded toe cap. An Italian-made Margom rubber sole provides great traction and a cushioned ride. The sole is cemented internally and reinforced with 360° stitching to the upper. A kidskin glove leather full liner extends throughout the interior. Both whole and half sizes are available for a precise fit.
This particular colorway matches black calfskin to a gum sole.
Epaulet Tennis Trainer High's run true to size. If you typically wear a 10D in dress shoes, then we recommend ordering a US10 in these. For a comparison to our dress shoes, this size would correspond to a 10D in the Alden Aberdeen last, a 9.5D in the Alden Barrie or Tru-Balance last, and a 9UK in most Carmina lasts. Many of our customers also tend to wear the same size in these as they would in a Converse Chuck Taylor - which can be a useful comparison for getting fitted locally.
For European customers looking at the EU size, we also recommend purchasing your typical size.
