The Essence Series consists of five essential models in a variety of uppers and colours. This flagship collection features only the most premium, durable materials with choices between two different uppers: Nappa and Nubuck.


Nappa

Our White and Black Essence models feature premium Nappa leather made from calfskin. This type of leather is soft yet durable and is known to maintain its shape.


Nubuck

Our Alloy and Blueberry silhouettes offer the same quality with nubuck uppers. The premium nubuck is gently waxed, making it extra soft. All silhouettes feature tonal stitching, laces and eyelets and every pair is fully lined with premium Aniline calf leather and a leather-coated memory foam insole, providing premium support and comfort.

Our first model, the LT 01, was designed in 2010 with a flat white rubber Cupsole. Over the years we have developed new models and new outsoles in the shape of the rugged rubber Cupsole and the TPU Court sole. Instead of low-cost gluing, our soles are fully stitched around the upper. Giving it extra strength and endurance. All soles within Essence are crisp white with tonal stitching.


Flat rubber Cupsole

The flat rubber Cupsole has been in our collection from the beginning of ETQ. Its clean and classic look complements this low top, making it a perfect shoe to end every outfit with style.


Rugged rubber Cupsole

The rugged outline of our rubber Cupsole creates a sturdy look and stand. The ribbing provides extra grip and enhances a confident movement.


TPU Court sole

Our Court sole is made from TPU: Thermoplastic Polyurethane. TPU is flexible, strong and resistant to oil, grease and abrasion. Helping you keeping your soles clean. Our Court sole is slightly raised, creating a more contemporary and bulky base for your shoes.

Because we believe at least one of the silhouettes in the Essence Series should be permanently present in your wardrobe, we would like to offer a helping hand. Broken laces or worn out insoles can be replaced for free. Let our customer service know what you need, and we will send you a new pair to keep you going for years to come.
