HeavyTaste’s Street Slip Footwear

View all 11 Photos

HeavyTaste Australia is a socially conscious footwear company based in Melbourne. They believe that businesses of all sizes should better their communities. To this end, they partner with STREAT, a social enterprise that provides holistic care, training, and culinary jobs for homeless youth, and they work with small Indonesian manufacturers, such as shoe artisan Reza Akbar. Each of HeavyTaste’s designs, called Street Slips, is handmade and named after an Australian street, celebrating local craftsmanship and culture. As shoes, the Street Slips distinguish themselves with a unique cut that combines elements of oxfords and loafers into one slip-on shoe. The unisex designs have a slim fit, comfortable memory foam or quilted sheepskin insoles, arch support, shock-absorbing heels, and buttery leather details. Check out the shoes and lend this young company a hand on Kickstarter.
