Maceoo is taking one big step with its first footwear collection of hand-crafted casual sneakers and formal shoes.

Crafted by skilled artisans in Italian leather and other fine materials, each pair is available at accessible prices.

Must-haves from the line include casuals such as honey brown ($198) in Italian leather, stitched bottom, textured side, and rubber soles; BlackSplash ($198) with artsy black splatter design, textured side panels, stitched bottom, and rubber soles; and skull white ($198) with the skull head design, with the brand’s royal blue signature insole, textured side panels, and rubber soles; the artisan blue ($225) with contrasting braided leather details, the royal blue signature insole, and stitched rubber soles. 

Formal pieces include the brown, gray, or black square shoes ($225) in heritage derby brogues design with a polished leather finish, and the dipped blue or shine blue, both ($228) of 100 percent lambskin leather, royal blue signature insole, and stitched bottom.

The new footwear collection follows the brand’s commitment to the precise fits and cuts of its line of dress shirts, jackets, V-neck T-shirts, polo shirts, underwear, socks, swimwear, and athleisure garments.

Since its inception, the brand has made an impact in menswear for its ultra-soft performance shirts with their four-way stretch, moisture-wicking, and odor-resistant capabilities. Its signature designs have been acclaimed for its eye-catching color and print contrasts, high-end details, and versatility in being mixed and matched with contemporary menswear wardrobes.
