Our Beson Platforms are a stylish and sophisticated option - perfect for transeasonal weather worn on their own or with tights or socks.
Made from patent leather that will soften over time and a recycled, platform sole providing the benefit of a flat with the extra support and shock absorption of a thick sole.
The round toe is reminiscent of a classic Mary Jane given the contemporary update of a platform style worked back with an ankle strap for extra support.
TPR + EVA Sole
Using recycled reinforcement TPR, thermoplastic rubber, is a 100% recyclable material processed by thermal injection molding. It is widely used for various types of soles for footwear. Gummed paper tape is the only tape that is 100% recyclable and biodegradable. The adhesive coated to the kraft paper is a starch-based glue that is completely soluble in water. No solvents are used in it's manufacture and the adhesive gum breaks down easily in the recycling process.

These leather shoes should be cleaned and conditioned with a neutral cream polish. Apply with a soft cloth and rub into dry or scuffed areas. Leather is a natural material and will age with wear. It is imperative that you avoid wetting or soaking these shoes in water as this will greatly affect the quality and appearance.
