Updated February 21, 2018 12:00pm ET FitSkes is selling the Superfit, a slim fit, “skeletonized” pair of shoes with a removable mesh lining for $450, or $4 a pair, with an optional mesh lining to match.
The shoes were first unveiled at the 2014 Paris Fashion Week and have since been discontinued.
FitSkins founder and CEO Brian Dufresne says the Superfits are made with the same material as the shoes, but “we’ve tried to create a shoe that’s superfit and superfit friendly.”
FitSks shoes have a lower heel height and a wider toe box.
The company says it’s working with a number of manufacturers to produce the shoes.
It’s not the first time FitSikes has focused on creating shoes that are more like what you might find in your closet, but it’s the first company to offer such a shoe.
“There’s a lot of products that we sell that aren’t necessarily fit or right for you,” Dufreese said.
The Superfit are currently available only in black, grey, and grey with grey inserts.
They’ll also be available in a “faux leather” finish.
The shoe can be bought online, at the FitSki store, or at the company’s website.
There are currently two sizes of the SuperFits, which are: a 6.9-ounce model with a mesh lining, and a 8.3-ounce Superfit with a nylon lining.
The size chart below shows the widths of the different sizes.
Fit Skes is working with the US Army and several other companies to produce its shoes, and Dufs is optimistic that the shoes will be ready by the end of March.
