The Hope, Hula and Hint are ultra-lightweight shoes made from a breathable stretch-knit fabric.
What's the worst thing about wearing shoes in summer?
Sweaty feet and painful blisters.
Walking around in shoes or strappy sandals can get pretty uncomfortable in warm weather.
So our designers decided to make you the perfect summer shoe.
Lightweight summer shoes
We’re not joking when we say these shoes weigh next to nothing – the lace-up Hope in size 6 weighs 190g (6.7oz), which is just 2g more than an iPhone 7+!
The slip-on Hula and Hint are even lighter, weighing just 180g (6.3oz).
That’s 8g less than an iPhone 7+.
How do we make them so light?
Our secret is using lightweight EVA plastic pellets, the material used to make flip-flops, to create the outsole.
Grippy rubber soles
Flip-flops don’t have the best surface grip, so we compress rubber pods on the bottom of the outsole to help with traction and durability. Rubber is much better at gripping wet and dry surfaces than EVA plastic, and lasts a lot longer too!
Breathable stretch knit
The top of the shoe is made from a polyester-blend stretch-knit material. The machine knitted blend is breathable, flexible, and stretches to your foot shape the moment you put them on.
On both shoes, the inside of the heel is reinforced with soft pigskin leather for durability and comfort.
The Hope has metal eyelets underneath the lace holes to reinforce the laces and stop the knit material from fraying.
They also come with removeable pigskin leather-covered insoles. Leather doesn’t hold odour and bacteria as much as synthetic materials, and just feels better on your feet.
Light as a feather
“Weird to say perhaps but this is my new favorite combo. It feels like summer here in Colorado so I am loving breaking out my dresses!
I think pairing them with sneakers instead of flats or sandals gives them a more dare I say edgy look? I just received this pair from Cougar Shoes and I am so into them. They are light as a feather and are the perfect nudey brown that goes with everything”
“Let me just start by saying I seriously feel like I am walking on clouds in these, it’s amazing y’all!
They have a memory-foam footbed and they come in a few different colors too. I personally chose this color (Dove) because I feel like it will match will just about anything in my closet. I suggest ordering your normal size as they do fit true to size. Just what this Mama needs!”
Best knit sneakers for women
“This is the MOST comfortable non-gym sneaker I have ever owned. I think ever! With it’s padded tongue, memory foam padded insole — seriously, if I had the closet space — I’d own this fab summer sneaker in all 3 colors!
This particular sneaker comes in half sizes which is great. I went a half size smaller & they fit perfectly. Because of their streamlined look, they’re the perfect knit sneakers to wear with skinny jeans”
These shoes are so light and comfortable you’ll forget you’re wearing them, and are perfect for any kind of activity in warm weather.
