WHAT PEOPLE ASK US
Are there other brands that sell this type of shoe?
How are the traditional shoes made?
How long has this type of shoe existed?
Are Charix made with the traditional method?
No. We guarded the traditional look but changed the original construction to a more ergonomic, comfortable, modern version of our own. This made all the difference.
Why did you stray from the traditional version?
After extensive field testing, we realized that forefathers did not have the same expectation of comfort, fit, durability, and orthopedics as we do today. Our version significantly improved on all those points. If you wear both versions you will immediately feel the difference.
Do you plan to offer the traditional version?
I own the traditional version. I want to try Charix.
Email us a picture of your old traditional pair. We will give you a $20 credit towards your next Charix purchase.
I prefer the tradition version. Who sells them?
Are there different versions of the traditional shoe?
There are several versions; some feature a curled toe, some feature a flat vamp, and other feature a woven design. And of course, there is the version we chose as the basis of our Charix brand, as seen on the picture.
