Frequently asked questions
The sneaker, which comes in a wide range of models such as the clc, medalist and two-tone reelwind lowein, is humbly considered the ultimate vintage super sneaker, with a touch of modernity that makes it current and unique. The spirit of the brand is to be popular yet underground. With its retro-futuristic style, it has reclaimed its place among the latest trends. Every detail of the shoes, whether for men or women, refers to the United States, with its embroidered red and blue logo. Originally sold as sports sneakers, the style of today's products, with their lace-up sneakers, reflects the codes of athleticism and urban trends. With their minimalist yet iconic design, these sneakers fit in with any style. From sneakers in simple colors such as white or black to sneakers with color or two-tone white and celeste, with red, orange, yellow, green, burgundy, purple or even brown to liven up your outfit, the brand's mission is to make us feel like ourselves and authentic. With this in mind, they also make it a point of honor to remain independent, asserting their freedom to create and act in a way they don't want to see diminished. Another source of inspiration, part of the house's DNA, is innovation: the airstop system, for example, ensures that the insole lets your foot breathe, which is accentuated by the perforated pointed toe. The airgrip system, meanwhile, ensures the grip of the rubber sole.
The Autry brand was born in Texas in the early 80s. From the outset, it was a great success with tennis players, with its Medalist low or open mid nylon sneakers in a vintage aesthetic, and became the leading sports sneaker brand of the 80s to be found in every store. Sadly, with the death of the designer who gave his name to the brand, Jim Autry, the brand with the American flag fell into oblivion with a sharp drop in success before making its comeback in 2019 to everyone's delight. The essential eighties brand has been relaunched by a French duo: Alberto Raengo and Regis Billard. In 2016, these two founded an agency specializing in distribution, image and marketing, and have collaborated with top sneaker brands such as Nike with its famous Air Force, New Balance and Puma. The brand's comeback was presented in the form of the Medalist low, updated with the latest manufacturing techniques, and was a rapid success. The sneakers still boast an eighties aesthetic right down to the stitching, with a simple design that makes them easy to wear on a daily basis, and this vintage aesthetic can also be found on instagram. The Autry sneaker has recently come to compete with the Adidas sneaker that also made a comeback a few years ago: the Stan Smith. The brand's products are designed in the USA, but the majority are made in Indonesia and sold in boutiques and online in France and many other countries.
The brand's flagship product is of course the medalist low, but there's also the medalist open mid nylon or clc, or the new reelwind in suede, and many other models in both high and low-top sneakers that can be worn in autumn-winter or summer, because they fit perfectly and are so comfortable. They're a classic, timeless pair for men, women and children alike, and can be worn with almost any outfit. Equally at home as a city pair in a casual chic style with pants, raw blue jeans, straight-cut or skinny jeans, a chino or a pretty navy or sky-blue blazer, or as a sports pair in a more comfortable sportswear style with jogging pants, a sweatshirt or a sports ensemble, you'll want to wear them for every occasion. Equally comfortable, elegant and timeless as they are casual and streetwear, this latest trend is available in a wide range of models that reflect the original aesthetic of the eighties and urban culture. More elegant than your hiking sneakers, but with no loss of quality, but much more comfortable than your moccasins, espadrilles or leather ankle boots, these flat shoes have become true fashion accessories of recent times. To match your pair to your outfit, you can also find a wide range of men's clothing: sweatshirts, t-shirts, pants, bobs and caps, and socks in every size to match your men's sneakers. These shoes are often found in the wardrobes of Generation Y or Z, whether male or female, as a fashion accessory. So, if you want to be at the cutting edge of fashion in a casual style and enhance all your looks, don't hesitate to get them! You'll find all our super trendy new products like clc or reelwind lowein as well as a wide choice of other products in our online store, and you can search for all L'Exception top brands. To find the ideal size for your comfort, you can use our free sizing guide, which offers the same service as in-store sizing from size 39 to size 47. So don't hesitate to validate your basket and, in the event that you don't like the pair you've chosen, return shipping is also possible. We're sure that our clothing and accessories, such as bobs and caps, will convince you.
The Autry Basket is a vintage shoe, often two-tone like the medalist or clc, and sometimes two-material. Textiles and materials may vary from one shoe to another, but the exterior of the shoe is mostly made of calfskin or suede leather and slightly beige rubber, used for the sole. Some editions also combine leather and suede. It's also possible to opt for a flashier, bolder look with the brand's metallic pairs. The lining is made of leather and terry cotton. Autry's use of leather, whether smooth or granulated, shows a real desire to create quality shoes so that you don't have to buy a new pair every month. The finishing touches are perfect, and no flaws are accepted, to ensure that our customers are as comfortable as in a pair of slippers, where the fit is always perfect. This is essential to the brand, so you'll never have sore feet at the end of the day.
If you're a fashionista who's a fan of your new babies, the reelwind or clc low-top shoes, care and quality are essential to preserve these latest fashion sneakers. Like all pairs of leather shoes, these are no exception, and require regular care if you want to keep them in perfect condition and extend their lifespan as much as possible. In fact, we recommend that you clean your pretty pair of lace-up shoes once a week, using a mild leather-specific cleaner and a soft-bristled toothbrush. Don't use abrasive brushes, which could scratch the leather. To restore the sole's original shine, you can clean it with a brush and a little soapy water. You'll also find two-tone pairs with suede, like the reelwind model. Being a delicate material, suede also cleans gently. Don't forget to waterproof them to extend their life. If you wish, you can also take your reelwinds to a leather and suede specialist to find them as good as new, so you can enjoy the feeling of buying new sneakers at a lower cost, while retaining the same level of comfort. You'll also find care products on the L'Exception website to clean and organize all your shoes by size.
