The older hands among us still know Autry from childhood. Founded in 1982 in Dallas, the brand quickly gained recognition on the sneaker market thanks to timeless designs and innovative technologies. Especially in sports like tennis, aerobics or running Autry found great appeal - Tennis Magazine voted the Medalist the best shoe in 1985, two years later Runner's World awarded the model Jetstreamers five stars.
The perfect go-to sneakers: minimalistic retro styles by Autry
After things went quiet around the label with the death of founder Jim Autry in the 90s, Autry is back on the international market since 2019 and from now on also part of our assortment.
In contrast to the past, the heritage-influenced brand is more lifestyle-oriented these days. Thanks to minimalist unisex designs in retro style with the characteristic contrasting sole, the sneakers match almost every outfit and can be combined in many ways. Typical for Autry: the logo with the United States flag and the use of first-class materials on all shoes. For example, Autry uses nubuck and other high-quality leathers in addition to smooth leather.
Heritage & quality – more is less!
The fathers of the comeback are Alberto Raengo and Régis Billard. As self-confessed Autry fans, it was a matter of the Frenchmen's hearts to bring the brand back to life. "Autry is the 'more is less' approach to footwear, the alliance between North American nostalgia and European know-how," Billard describes the philosophy.
