Spalwart Marathon Low Sneakers. What happens if you let Swedes produce runners in Slovakia, on machines from the 50’s? How odd it may sound the successful Stockholm-based brand Spalwart produce great looking retro-loving runners with high quality. Their models are inspired by running shoes from the 70’s and all of the brand’s shoes are manufactured in Slovakia at a factory that has long stood still. Sneakers today is mostly about mass production and low prices but with Spalwart it’s the reverse, quality materials and well worked designs.
