Start with a suede and full-grain leather upper and attach it to a lightweight natural cork midsole and recycled rubber outsole, then throw in a supportive Ortholite footbed, and you have the Element Marlow Vibram Shoe. The Marlow is an everyday shoe with dressed-up appeal and undertones of Element's skateboarding footwear.
- Ortholite footbed provides all-day comfort and support
- Cork midsole is lightweight and breathable
- Vibram outsole provides high traction with a low-profile appearance

a four-season must have
The Marlow from Element (part of their stellar Emerald Collection) is so dialed in, it almost hurts. Really nice construction, super clean stitching and lines, and finished with a leather that has worn in very nicely over the several months I've had them. While I wouldn't recommend relying on this particular Vibram sole for hiking or any other high-stress applications, it's super comfortable and probably best suited for urban trekking. Can't go wrong with a pair of Wayfarers and your favorite skinny jeans.

Love this style, really dig this new colorway. They may look like some winter boots but don;t be scared to wear them with shorts and look like a boss.
