Retro

The Retro models are fashionable sneakers designed to be more comfortable, thanks to a thicker sewn rubber outsole. There are four of them and they are called Retro for their vintage and timeless sneaker look. Like the other models, the Retro are designed in Portugal and the colors of the uppers are neutral and timeless, matching many items of your wardrobe.

A European know-how

Like other Wibes sneakers, the Retro is 100% European made in a family-owned factory in Portugal, with noble and eco-responsible raw materials from our European neighbors:

  • The leather of the upper, insole and lining, vegetable tanned, metal-free and biodegradable, comes from Portugal.
  • The suede leather, also vegetable tanned and metal-free, comes from Italy.
  • The rubber outsole of about 3 cm and the laces come from Portugal.

Only the wax that we wanted to be authentic and homemade, is designed and produced in Abidjan, Côte d’Ivoire. Made of 100% cotton, this fabric exists in a wide range of colors and patterns. Each pair is unique according to the cut of the wax around the laces or on the heel, which allows us to reduce the waste of fabrics to the maximum. The second pair of colored laces that you will find in the Retros box will allow you to change your style according to your desires. Comfort is the key word for this model with a wider shape, and whose thick sole comes to cushion the walk and lengthen the silhouette.

 

A more fashionable DNA

Loved by women but also by men, the Retros are trendy leather sneakers that are easy to wear in all seasons. If the sole may seem heavy or too thick at first, it is definitely not the case once worn: real slippers! You’ll be ready for a busy day or to dance the night away! The colored shoe models are designed to be more elegant and perfectly match with a more work or event oriented look thanks to the more discreet wax inserts and sober colors. Our designer has also thought these pairs for a more streetwear or trendy look: with a hoodie or sunglasses, it’s done!

A trendy and fitted style

For a casual look, the Retro in white leather and wax will go well with shorts or a long skirt. For a more sophisticated look, the Retro in nubuck and discreet prints will be your best allies with suit pants or a chino. The wax inserts bring a bit of sunshine to these pairs that are more fashionable and casual. You have medical insoles? no worries, the lined leather insole, also vegetable tanned and metal-free, of all Wibes is easily removed. Vintage sneakers with a strong urban DNA are appreciated for their simplicity and their style. In short, you will have understood that the Retros are versatile and adapt to all the styles and all the outfits of your dressings.
