Closeouts. Simple takes on retro fashion and injects sustainable build philosophy with their Take On Hi high-top sneakers. The leather upper sits atop a biodegradable insole and recycled rubber outsole.

I got these shoes from STP a couple of months ago and I am absolutely in love with them! I was able to get these in the dark grey color. These are my second pair of Simple shoes. I'm really sad to hear that the company doesn't produce anymore shoes. I really do like their business model. But besides that, here's also what I love about these shoes:
1. Fit true to size. My other pair of Simples ran small. I got these in 5 and they fit like my other Simples in 5.5.
2. Oh-so-comfortable! I had little to no breaking in period. The removable inserts are surprisingly thick.
3. Nice, supple, soft leather.
4. I found the leather to be water resistant (albeit, not waterproof). It happened to rain one day when I was wearing the shoes and walking from point A to B, my feet stayed dried.
5. I love the simple style, pun intended.
The only drawback I see is the sole wears out quickly. I tend to overpronate and the soles can already attest to that. I have worn them quite a bit, to be fair.

This was my first pair of Simple shoes and I love them! I like the fact that they are Eco-friendly and really comfortable, too. I added bright green shoelaces to add some color flair since they are very plain. I would definitely buy this brand of shoes again.

This is the second pair of sneakers that I have ordered from Simple. I wear a size 5 and they really fit well. The are super cute, but this pair seems to squeak a bit. I am hoping that this minor problem is solved with wear, because otherwise they are adorable.

These shoes looked totally different to me, in person. I got the gray, and they looked almost blue, and much darker, when I got them out of the box. They look less blue, and more gray, in the sunlight, but they are darker than in the picture. They were also too narrow for me, but since they're leather, they stretched, and now fit me like a dream! The leather is eco-friendly, so I don't feel guilty about it, and it's so soft and nice! Now I just have to resist the temptation to wear them every day, because I want to have them for a long time!
