At Pauw Mannen we offer Loro Piana’s iconic shoes; the Open Walk, which are originally designed for sailing, but are perfectly adapted to an urban environment. They are designed as a functional shoe for sportive spirts, who are passionate about sailing. They became immediately popular for their comfort, lightness and minimalistic yet original silhouette.
The Open Walk is an ultra-soft ankle boot without laces. One of its special features is a patented opening with a concealed elastic band, that makes them easy to slip on. The shoes will enwrap your feet and provide complete support.
