Mercer has unveiled its Racer Lux Alcantara, which stands out from the rest of Mercer’s footwear offerings due to the materials used to craft it. Alcantara is a completely vegan, synthetic material that is used to on the interiors of high-end car brands such as Porsche, Lamborghini, and Ferrari.
Alcantara can also be used as a more sustainable alternative to suede, which is what Amsterdam-based Mercer has done here. The Mercer Racer Lux Alcantara arrives in three tonal colorways: triple black, black and white, and white and grey.
In addition to the Alcantara upper, the sneakers boast a distinct ’70s-inspired design, albeit with a slightly bulkier shape. Additionally, the Vibram sole unit guarantees a comfortable and stable ride.
