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. 🎵

Nice kicks!

These are stylish, comfortable, and affordable. I normally get the OS sneakers, but wanted to try something new. I'm glad I did. These are my new favorite.

I really like them - they are a little flat - could do with a little more arch support but the person who recommended them told me that.

SLO ride - take it easy

I’ve been wearing Simple shoes for 20+ years. Hadn’t tried these yet and I’m happy I did. Being a fan of OG chucks (they’ve never fit right so I stopped wearing them), these are the perfect answer. Comfy, a little wide, breathable and overall feel is totally great - as you would expect. Build quality is spot on. I’ll look forward to wearing these out so I can buy them again :)

Excellent Shoes

Like many other reviewers, I owned the OS shoes back in the 90s. After finding the simple website again last year, I noticed the SLO model. I like them even better than the originals. Great fit, great price, and great quality. Thanks simple shoes!
