down to earth / gents' shoe

down to earth
down to earth

These shoes are made for people who hunger for live in a close touch with nature.
For human beings who like to feel the green grass underneath their feet in the summer time.
Who like to walk the corridor with naked feet to feel the cold without breaking any conventions.
"Down to earth" is a shoe for sensible thinkers, silent rebels and maybe an answer to stabilise the financial market. To increase the sensibility and to bring people down to earth without giving new finance packages. They are a gift for all who lost the ground beneath their feet or love to feel free.
