The ART - Pieces of Same
Intended to portray the uniqueness of each gender, while also recognizing our shared makeup. Different. But paired to symbolize equal opportunity and a required commitment to progress by both genders.

Not an issue of right or wrong, gender equality asks each of us as individuals to examine and reflect upon the social norms and stereotypes that we apply to gender. And to reflect on how those perspectives influence our behavior and potentially contribute to inequality.

Footwear Sizing Advice

For women, this model runs small.  Please order up 1/2 size from your regular size.

For men, this model runs true to size.  If you regularly fall between sizes (for example - sometimes a M-9, sometimes a M-9.5) we recommend you order the larger of the two sizes.

For men or women,

- WIDTH: Our shoes run narrow.  If you typically search out and purchase footwear that has a WIDE fit, we're probably not the best shoe for you.

- ARCH SUPPORT:  If you seek our product with significant arch support or wish to use your own orthotic, we're not the right shoe for you.  Our footbed is not removable.

Fitting is personal. That's why we offer free shipping and returns to make sure you get the size that works best for you.

Equal Opportunity - Yes.  Unisex Sizing - No.

Gender differences on important anatomical features do exist, so we do not offer unisex sizing. Our men's and women's shoes are built on unique forms to accommodate those differences.

For a given length or size, the women's shoes will fit slightly narrower and with a smaller instep height in comparison to men's.

For example:  A M-8 will be the same length as a W-9.5 (Men's Size + 1.5 = Women's Size), but the shoes will fit differently.  The W-9.5 will be slightly more narrow and have a slightly lower instep.
