Alstead Components

So what is all the hype about the Alstead when there are already some amazing kicks in Travel Lite?

Alstead has two brand new features, Step Lite foam and FlexCork. These new materials are built into the sole, helping you walk with ease. The Step Lite foam bounces back with each step, making the shoes feel soft and cushy. FlexCork has the look of traditional cork without the stiffness. It moves with the sole and can flex and bend with each step. Finally, a shoe that's made to move with you.

The Alstead is completely unlined, making the sneaker fit like a soft glove. Thanks to the vegan suede, you don’t have to worry about any rubbing or discomfort. This shoe seriously feels unlike any other. The recycled rubber lug sole will help you get a grip and keep moving. So get ready to make a break for it!


Comfy. Easy. Light. 

 Great new materials, comfy and fashionable sneakers... what else? There's more to know about the thoughtful details our designers put in to make the Alstead comfy, easy and light. 

The unlined design makes Alstead easy to throw in a suitcase or carry on. Face the shoes together in your bag and you are off! Since this style is so lightweight, you won't have to worry about exceeding the 50lb weight limit. Did we also mention they take up half the room of a normal pair of sneakers? Now you can hit the ground running at your destination. The Alstead is available in three color options that are easy to style (yes even the zebra print).
