Description

The Mercury slip on loafer is constructed of a tumbled, pebblegrain calf leather with sheepskin trim. The silhouette is set on an elevated rubber Margom outsole as an ode to the high foxing detail found on vintage vulcanized sneakers. Full-grain calf leather lining and insole can be found in the interior.

The Mercury is handmade in Tuscany, using leathers and components sourced from Italian tanneries and suppliers.

Victor Hsu began designing shoes in New York in his mid-twenties. Now, almost a decade later, he has experienced a fundamental evolution, in which he seeks intellectually, spiritually and subsequently from the material realm. He believes that products made with quality at their core, inevitably possess a longer physical lifespan. This belief has become an essential driving force behind his design, which translates into silhouettes, colors and materials that transcend the cycles of trend. Reinterpreting and balancing abstractions of vintage, currency and futurism has become the purpose behind a product to evoke an appreciation that dares to endure years or even decades, and perhaps with age, becomes an object of even deeper affinity.
