We have created a special edition WEN to mark the 150th Anniversary of Sun Yat Sen's birth. The shoes named after Beatrix Ong MBE's great uncle were launched last year as the first of the new concept collection. Only a limited number of SYS150 have been made for this very special occasion.

THE UPPER

The upper part of the shoe plays homage to Beatrix Ong’s great uncle who in the early 1900s favoured plimsolls.

-        Canvas Upper with Brogue Punch Detail

-        Concealed Elasticated-Front

-        2016 诞辰150周年 (150th Anniversary) is printed in Gold on inner tongue

 

 

THE INSOLES

The layer of bamboo and charcoal that are embedded into the insoles are natural deodorisers that are also anti-perspirant and ionising for better comfort and improved circulation. 

 

THE SOLES

The unisex WEN is made on an exclusively designed rubber sole inspired by the soles of the original ‘Beijing old shoes’. 

When it comes to shoes, most now have a rubber sole. A vulcanised runner sole results in a sole which is less likely to warp and degrade over time. It is common to find vulcanised soles on shoes intended for manual work or for extreme outdoor pursuits such as mountaineering or skateboarding, and in our case - life.

-        Recyclable Rubber Sole measures approx. 20mm

 

 

THE PACKAGING

The recycled packaging that houses the shoes and shoe bag uses Micro-Pak® technology. To find out more click here.
