A Minimalist Street Style low-top premium Italian leather sneakers designed by a Freemasons for Freemasons- and for Everyone who value originality, uncompromising quality, and a distinct (yet subtle) style.
Did I already mention Made in Italy? That's right, each pair hand-crafted by artisans from Le Marche. According to Wikipedia: "Marche is well known for its shoemaking tradition, with the finest and most luxurious Italian footwear being manufactured in this region."
The alternating black and white detail is inspired by the black and white checkered floor which has existed in ancient temples since time immemorial.
R.W. Bro. John K. Johnston wrote "The black and white checkered floor has existed in temples since the times of ancient Egypt. More than simply decorative, the mosaic pavement bears a profound esoteric meaning. Today it is one of Freemasonry's most recognizable symbols and is the ritualistic floor of all Masonic lodges."
