Muro.exe shoes are inspired by design, comfort, and the potential total annihilation of the human race. Muro.exe’s team found most urban shoes to be sorely lacking.
In an attempt to achieve the most harmonious blend of aesthetics, functionality, and comfort, a group of experts hailing from all walks of the design industry (except footwear, ironically) were pooled together.
Once you go Muroexe, you can’t go back. You put them on and you’re like “did I put on shoes today?”. They are super light and fly as hell. They are classy and sassy at the same time. Why? Because they look like sneakers, but you can also match them with a more elegant outfit
