Item Description  Sizing Construction and Origin About Nick Kroll


"I think my goal was just to do comedy, honestly. It still is. Whatever form that took or takes, it doesn't matter." - Nick Kroll

We're thrilled to present this exclusive special edition Tennis Trainer - designed by our good friend Nick Kroll! As one of the funniest guys in showbiz, Nick did a killer job with this piece. He matched a dark navy steerhide upper to a pearl grey Margom sole and accented it with a soft grey suede heelcap. The trainers include co-branded cotton shoe bags. 36 units are available.

The Epaulet Tennis Trainer is our modern day re-interpretation of the clean leather tennis shoes of the 1960s. We've retained the minimal look of the original design but we've upgraded all of the materials to offer a truly high-end product.

About Nick Kroll


Epaulet Tennis Trainers 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 Jack Purcell or Vans Authentic - 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. 

Produced at our Portuguese factory, Epaulet Tennis Trainers perfectly compliment the casual side of our collection. 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 is hand-made in Portugal using gorgeous full-grain genuine horsehide leather. This stunning leather 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.
