Hand-Crafted 24-Hour Work Shoes

The FLEX 2 Work Shoes Combine Class with the Comfort of Sneakers

— May 12, 2021 — Eco
The FLEX 2 24-hour work shoes from Tefors are a comfort-focused revamp of the classic Oxford shoe. The shoes combine the comfort of athletic sneakers with the class of dapper dress shoes for a pair of wear-all-day shoes that perform in every circumstance. The FLEX 2 shoes feature an elegant Italian leather exterior, an anti-bacterial insole, a cork outsole made with recycled materials, and full coverage cushioning. The lacing in the front conceals the slip-on construction that makes the shoes eminently accessible.

The FLEX 2 work shoes select 12 styles ranging from conservative black dress-style shoes to forest green suede-lined shoes. Included in this selection are three styles of Chelsea boots for consumers that require a more protective footwear option. The FLEX 2 shoes are offered through Tefors' Kickstarter campaign, which is open until May 29th, 2021.
