The original Marathon was first introduced in the 1980s as a distance running shoe. Particularly definitive for the Marathon is the combination of leather insole, light EVA foam rubber sole, and a outer most sole of natural rubber with tread, improving stability when running. The cushioned calfskin inner sole and the upholstered shaft combine to support the Achilles tendon, guaranteeing comfort. The perforations in the front cap of the retro sneakers for Ladies facilitate air circulation to the foot. These low-top sneakers are handmade of premium, sustainable, vegetable tanned leather. Over 200 refining processes are necessary to achieve the quality and the durability of the ZEHA tradition. This vintage design decked out with the two signature ZEHA double stripes and the ZEHA logo on the tongue of the shoe. Each pair comes with a practical travel bag.
