DRESS SHOES AS COMFORTABLE AS YOUR BEST SPORTS SHOES Maratown

OUR MISSION IS TO MAKE DRESS SHOES AS COMFORTABLE AS YOUR BEST SPORTS SHOES

We love walking, staying active, exploring, and we'd rather enjoy doing this with super cushy and comfortable shoes. But these only come with a sporty / casual look. That's why Maratown® was born.

Inspired by cushioned maximalist sports shoes for running marathons, MARATOWN® engineered a super-cushioned sole, designed with a modern dressed look, for walking effortlessly all day long. A new way to offer you maximum comfort!

MIDSOLE, LIKE WALKING ON A CLOUD maratown

THE MIDSOLE, LIKE WALKING ON A CLOUD

Maratown offers a soft landing at every step thanks to our revolutionary midsole Bouncell­™. Exclusively developed by Maratown, Bouncell™ is a bi-density midsole. It is made of the cutting edge super soft & resilient foams (based on high density closed cell copolymer EVA and PU). Bouncells™ is:

Super soft sole: to cushion your heels strike.
Elastic shoe sole: to energize your impulsions.
Resilient: it doesn't flatten before millions of steps. 
Lightweight: feel light!
Protected by a 3mm rubber outsole.

THE INSOLE, CRUISING AT HIGH ALTITUDE

In addition to the midsole, Maratown offers a unique removable, supportive and pain relief insole. Spreading pressures all through the sole of your feet, it reduces the points of pressure especially under the forefoot's ball and the heel.
Maratown's insole is specially designed to support your arch whether it is a high or low arch. The softness of the material will just embrace your arch.
For flat feet, you can either enjoy the arch support or remove our insole and place a flat one.
Finally, you can use your own orthotic insole and still enjoy 90% of the cushioning. Most of the cushioning is provided by the midsole, as opposed to traditional shoes where the small cushion is in the insole.

SOFT AND STABLE SHOES: KEEP DYNAMIC STEPS

Maratown also provide stability thanks to our bi-density midsole: the harder density surrounding the heel, to keep your steps dynamic along your journey!

SHOE COMFORT IN THE DETAILS

Beyond feeling like floating on air, comfort relies on characteristics that Maratown features:

maratown lightweight dress shoes

LIGHTWEIGHT - Maratown are on average 20% lighter than traditional dress shoes. They are as light as sneakers! (Derby weight 12.8 Oz size 42)

FITTING - the shapes have been studied by specialists, to offer sufficient space onto the side, while still looking gorgeous. Volume adjusters are included in each shoebox to perfect your fitting.

DROP - the heel is 0.45 inches higher than the forefront, to ideally balance the weight between the heel and the forefoot.

BENDING - despite the thickness of the sole, the use of soft materials and a smaller thickness at the front allow the shoe to ideally bend at the base of the big toe, helping your articulation.

TOP ROCKER SOLE - the top of the shoe is slightly elevated, for a dynamic walk.

HEEL SUPPORT - to guide your feet at the heel strike.

LEATHER - Maratown uses leather for both upper and lining. Our leather is sourced to be soft, breathable, and resistant, made from cows, in Europe. No more stiff leather that hurts!

VEGETABLE AND NATURAL LEATHER - chrome and metal free tannage, metal free dyestuffs, and water-based finishes.

NUBUCK LINING AT THE HEEL - to help your heel to never slip out of the shoe. 

MALLEOLUS FREE - the sides have been lowered to prevent the leather hurting the malleolus.

SMOOTH INSIDE - as little seam as possible to avoid skin hurt.

PADDED COLLAR AND TONGUE -  Maratown provides padding and cushion at all pressure points, not only in the sole!

ABOUT MARATOWN

"I am Fabien from France, founder of Maratown. I love comfort, I love walking, I love exploring cities on foot, I love being active all day. I was craving for dress shoes as comfortable as my running shoes - it did not exist. I created Maratown® in 2015 thanks to a $30,000.00 successful campaign on Indiegogo and Kickstarter. Since then, we have strived to design, manufacture and deliver unique super comfortable shoes."
