In 2012, two friends and I grew frustrated by the lack of functional innovation, which was being showcased in the footwear industry. It seemed as though we all just got used to getting blisters, repetitive styles, and ill-fitting shoes. Our aim was to create a brand which offered the ultimate in forward-thinking footwear. It was from this thought, that HeavyTaste was born.  

We also wanted to celebrate Australia in our products, which is why we took inspiration from prominent Australian streets, in the design phase of our shoes.

What we have created is the Street Slip.

We work with smaller disadvantaged manufacturers to design and produce handmade shoes, using genuine leather. Mind you, we were surprised by how skilled these artisans were. We combined traditional skills with technology to reinforce our shoes with trademarked padding for comfort, and incorporating styles fit for both males and females. What we wanted was a truly functional footwear that comes without a loss of aesthetics.

A Few Words From The Artisan.


True innovation lies in the simplest of ideas. Our simple idea –change the cut of our shoes.

By 2013, with a year of meticulous research and development, we were able to create a shoe cut unique to HeavyTaste. No other brand in the world has such a cut, as we developed a unique last which allows us to produce the ultimate slip-on style shoe.

Unlike oxford and brogues, the Street Slip’s ease of wear allows the wearer to put them on in a matter of seconds.

Unlike loafers, the cut allows the shoe to mould to the wearers’ feet to ensure a strong hold, and no slippage.

Our choice of materials have allowed for our slip, after a few wears, to mould like a glove to the wearer’s feet!

The Perfect Couple.

We have worked hard and long to make our slips genderless. If you are looking for a pair of trendy and comfortable kicks that would work great alone or even better in couples, then look no further!

Working with, and supporting, social enterprises are the cornerstones of HeavyTaste. With these in mind, we support our partners by purchasing their goods, which we then pass onto the customer at no additional cost. This innovative transactional relationship is the concept HeavyTaste champions.

We are proud to be partnering with STREAT, an Australian social enterprise, and supporting the work they do to improve the lives of the most disadvantaged youths in our local communities.

NOTE : Due to the nature of the crowd-funding exercise and restrictions on air shipments, we are unable to supply coffee beans with Indiegogo's perks at this moment of time. The team at HeavyTaste is working on sustainable alternatives for a simple global solution in the near future.

We understand that a product like this may be ambiguous in response. Hence, we took our own initiative to launch our first batch of Street Slips. After 3 months in operation we are now confident that there is definite demand for our products. We have been truly thankful for the support our first batch of customers have given us.

Additionally, we have also garnered a significant amount of interest on our Kickstarter campaign.

With such success, we are aiming to champion our product and concept innovation to a global market with out 2nd generation Street Slips.

Our 2nd generation Street Slips will see numerous improvements in terms of comfort. The above image describes such changes visually. In a nutshell, the new and improved Street Slip will spot a more wearable cut with maximized comfort levels and uncompromising quality. Additionally, all new generation Street Slips will come with Memory Foam Insoles with trademarked Arch Support as part of our commitment to wearable fashion.

SIZING :

Heavytaste Footwear are EU sized. If you are unfamiliar or have never worn EU sized shoes before, we recommend downsizing by 1 size from your usual UK/US shoe size for the best possible experience. 

We however, do recommend you to take your usual UK/US size for our Street Sneaks due to a slightly different last used. 

If you are between sizes, always go for the lower end. Our StreetSlips are built to feel slightly tighter at the start but will mould to your feet like a glove, and expand after a wear or two. If there is preference for thicker socks feel free to take your original size.

Below are the conversion size charts we use on our shoes.

We always try our very best to assist with sizing. Feel free to email us at inquiries@heavytaste.com.au if needed or to leave us here a message on Kickstarter. We will reply to your needs as soon as we can! Alternatively we will be on live chat at www.heavytaste.com.au during Australian business hours.

Returns

We understand that sometimes, especially for footwear there is need to first try out the shoe before being able to determine the right sizing. 

We will accept all returns within 30 days of receipt of package as long as the package is returned to us in its original condition. 

Returned packages will be posted from us FREE Australia wide. A minimal fee of $30 will be charged for returned worldwide delivery.

We have currently completed all our designs and technical details of the Street Slip. However, we will still be constantly testing for and improving on minor details of our product. Hence, if needed we will be updating the Indiegogo community and all our supporters on these changes.

Rest assured that we strive for perfection in everything we do and that all changes will improve the Street Slip experience.    

At the end of the Indiegogo campaign, a survey/email will be sent out where which backers will mark the shoe models and sizes they require. Updates via email will be consistently sent to all our backers on the progress of their orders. We expect to deliver 100% of our orders on the promised month.

FAQ

1). What is the width sizing of HeavyTaste Street Slips? Our Street Slips have standard width, in UK terms a standard D. That being said, we use extremely soft leather for the top, enabling our Street Slips to mould to wearer's feet after a few wears. Tried & tested by a few wide footed peeps!

2). Why HeavyTaste? Not only will you be one of the very first in the world to own a Street Slip (yes, this makes you a cool kid) but you will also be helping homeless/disadvantaged youth in obtaining a set of self-sustainable skills.

3). How are you sure that your cut is unique? We have done a whole load of R&D before rolling out our product. Rest assured that our shoes are constructed using a customized last built from scratch. We are pretty 101% sure of its uniqueness.

4). What is the difference between a 1st Gen Street Slip and a 2nd Gen Street Slip? Our 2nd Gen Slips have been improved in terms of aesthetics, comfort and cut. They hold better and is slightly more comfortable with the use of better materials and memory foam insoles albeit the slightly higher price. That being said, our 1st Gen Slips have been tried & tested (through our 3 month market trial) and have so far returned 100% satisfaction. You won't go wrong with either pair.

5). Are these Men's or Women's Shoes? Sizing Worries? All our shoes are unisex. They work perfectly well for both Men and Women (think TOMS / Converse). Our current range runs from EU35 up to EU 48. That is a huge range covered. We are always happy to help with sizing! Just send us an email over to inquiries@heavytaste.com.au
