Inspired by the iconic two-tone classic saddle of the 40s, we handcraft and hand last A Jazz Duo with a contemporary twist in colors & materials. This classic unisex style will help you stand out from the crowd and bring you ultra comfort for either Lindy Hopping all night or walking all day.
A Jazz Duo is exclusively made to order & made to measure truly to your happy feet.
Our insoles are different! Our leather insole (i.e. the material on which your foot is placed) provides excellent breathability and moisture absorption capabilities. A soft-padded layer is added underneath the insole to bring you extra comfort & support for your every step.
Our outsoles* are made with high quality bovine leather with stacked leather heels, the traditional way of making heels since the 16th century, and guarantee to last a long time. Leather outsole is always the best choice as the more you wear it, the better it will begin to mold and compress to the contours of your feet.
You can choose:
- Full leather: for perfect swingouts.
- With rubber caps on heels: for extra grip on heels.
- With full rubber caps: for greater traction, recommended if you mainly use the shoes for outdoor.
*Our outsoles are resole-able so they can be replaced by skillful cobblers when worn out. Never have to throw your shoes away!
A Jazz Duo is uniquely handcrafted from top grain cowhide leather and indigo-dyed beeswax cotton*, which is handmade & batik drawn by craftswomen from the Hoa Tien community.
Hoa Tien is one of the famous and longtime textile weaving “cradle” of Thai people, an ethnic minority, in Nghe An province for more than 100 years. Each artisan put a lot of effort into making the fabric, blowing the soul into the unique pattern to make them more alive. Swing Love is very proud to work with such special material.
*Each hand-made shoe will show a different part of the pattern, creating a unique look.
- Uppers: well-sourced full grain/ top grain cowhide leather (we do not use genuine leather)
- Veg-tanned leather lining
