Bumper Court Suede Sneaker - Sand, Gum
Moonstar - Bumper Court Suede Sneaker - Sand, Gum
We’ve admired Moonstar from a distance for some time now. The story of the Moonstar factory in Kyusyu, Japan is now one of legend. The attention to detail and fine crafting is unmatched in the industry. As we made our transition from solely a boot company to sneakers, we knew we must have the best. The process of ka-ryu or vulcanization has been perfected in their factory in Kurume since the companies inception in 1873. The shoes are heated to 120° for 70 minutes making the rubber soft and gummy for your walking pleasure. These gym classic lows are a truly iconic look, especially if you show a little ankle.
We wanted to branch out from our standard Gym Classic deliveries, and this round we've been gifted with the bumper court. This shoe is a slightly more padded and structured low top with a suede body and even more vulcanization. The wrapping of rubber on this one is reminiscent of skate shoes for us, as there's extra room in the "bumper" wall for flipping your board. These are perfect matches for any or our raw denim or chinos.

Fit Notes: So here's the skinny. People get very confused about sizing, and the best way we know to remedy that is by comparing them to other shoes. These shoes are known to run pretty true. You can size down but you'll most likely feel the squeeze of the rubber toe cap if you do. Take your typical Converse Chuck 70 and stick with that. If you land in between at an 8.5, take the next size up to a 9. Shop owner Tommy is wearing size 9's in the pictures. *He is typically an 8.5 in Converse. In Red Wing, he wears an 8 in almost every last.* Without an additional orthotic insole, he can wear a size 8 from SLP, but with an insole and thicker socks, he wears a size 9. So, essentially if you were to take these shoes out of the box, and slip them on with no sock and no insert, you're going to go with your true Red Wing boot size which may mean sizing down if you're an in-betweener. If you plan to wear your Chups or thick wool socks with these, you'll be able to size up! That's the best we've got on these and we hope it helps. Reach out with any questions.
