Feather-light knit lace oxford. Feminine taper toe. Removable molded foam leather insole. EVA outsole with rubber tread. Learn more.
The Hope fits true-to-size, and should match your Brannock Foot-Measuring Device® measurements.
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.
We’re not joking when we say these shoes weigh next to nothing – a size 6 Hope weighs 190g (6.7oz).
That's just 2g more than an iPhone 7 !
Our secret is using lightweight EVA plastic pellets, the material used to make flip-flops, to create the outsole.
Flip-flops don’t have the best surface grip, so we compress grippy 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!
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.
The Hope is comfortable to wear barefoot due to its breathable pigskin leather-covered insole.
Leather doesn’t hold odour and bacteria as much as synthetic materials, and just feels better on your feet.
“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. As Cougar Shoes tend to fit big, 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”
“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!”
“A great sneaker is perfect for Spring, but a pink knit sneaker is even better! This sneaker from Cougar is so beyond comfortable that it almost feels like I’m floating.
Believe me when I say they’re too good to be true but, in fact, they are for real. While they do lace up, they’re super easy to slip on and are the ideal sneaker to take you from Spring right on into Summer.”
