classic organic cotton canvas sneaker

With a nod to one of our favorite towns, San Luis Obispo, we are pleased to introduce the SLO.  Simple innovation in the form of a timeless style that will become a wardrobe staple. The high contrast white outsoles impart a sporty look and feel. Memory foam insoles support and cushion your every step for maximum comfort. There are no harmful dyes used to make the rich black tone and the materials are held together with eco-friendly water based glues. The flat cotton laces are made from 100% recycled cotton; and yes, it is a vegan shoe.  A classic organic cotton canvas sneaker that goes well with whatever music is playing. 🎵

Very good quality!

I was really impressed with the price and the design. They are so comfortable and will go with anything. Looking forward to more of these shoes in the future. I’ve got my eye on other colors and styles. Thank you Simple!

All Hail the SLO!

I have been a fan of Simple Shoes since the '90s and was so happy to stumble upon them again currently. I ordered a pair of black SLO women's sneakers and the sizing, thanks to their sizing guide, was on point. I wear an 8 usually but ordered a half size smaller and the size is perfect without crushing my heels or toes. They well made, have a classic and timeless design and silhouette, and they are just the best sneakers you could buy that are going to be both comfortable and versatile. As a former devotee of other casual sneakers that everyone else seems to adore, these are the best possible sustainable, well-designed, and timeless sneakers you can possibly get without looking like everyone else out there wear Chucks, and just wearing a well-made shoe that is symbolic of everything an apparel and accessory manufacturer needs to represent in the year 2020.

Love these shoes!

Great fit. I spoke to customer service before I ordered. The woman was very helpful and suggested I order a half size smaller and I did. They fit perfectly and look great! Comfortable shoes!
