After more than 30 years, the Classic Leather officially made its jump and is now embraced in the casual sneaker category. Its success also resulted in the shoe being translated to different designs. One of its released designs is the Classic Leather EB, a women’s sneaker that ups every wearer’s athleisure game in an instant.
