A shoe halfway between a sneaker and a shoe: the sartorial sneaker
Sneakers has become essential in our locker rooms. The “running” type sneaker is easy to match with casual chic outfits. The Caulaincourt maison creates aesthetic models that are pleasant to wear on a daily basis. Our model is entirely in leather and we have chosen to call on transalpine know-how for the quality of its manufacture.
An extraordinary sole.
But its specificity is its sole: designed by Alexis Lafont (founder of Caulaincourt) for the French “entreprise du patrimoine vivant” company “Lactaé Hévéa”, it was developed from virgin rubber tree milk.
Cultivated in large tropical plantations, the Hévea tree makes it possible to obtain this rubber with incomparable properties: it feels like walking on a Tagada strawberry as it is so soft and cushioning.
Harvesting rubber milk does not weaken the tree, but helps to develop it. When one end of the notched part is reached, the other end has finished regenerating.
No natural forest is harvested. Through an entirely manual and environmentally friendly artisanal process, within a company on a human scale, the LACTAE HEVEA® sole is part of a sustainable development approach.
The LACTAE HEVEA® sole lives and evolves to improve over time. Small visual imperfections, due to the natural origin of the sole, become real guarantees of authenticity.
In terms of design, the Monopole stands out from all other running sneakers by its unique rear part and by its tangle of overlapping inserts, giving it an extremely graphic and modern appearance.
A customizable leather sneaker
We offer à la carte patina for all our shoe models and the Monopole is no exception. You can choose from the patinas we have imagined or tell us about your project. Everything is possible and we will take real pleasure in bringing your ideas to life. Did you know that Caulaincourt could customize the sole of your sneakers? Immaculate white, vintage look or solid color, the choice is yours!
Tip: the sole dirty from being worn is not inevitable! Bring your pair to the store, we have everything you need to restore its shine.
