Frequently Asked Questions


What are Flatheads uppers made of?

Flatheads uppers are made of natural bamboo and polyester threads that are knit to give them a ridiculously breathable form.

What are Flatheads soles and insoles made of?

We could tell you that our soles are made of EVA and are shockproof, flexible, water-resistant & lightweight. Or that our insoles are made of cushiony PU to distribute the weight of your body evenly. But what we really mean is that they are made of ridiculously comfortable stuff!


Are the insoles detachable?

Yes! You can even swap them for custom/orthopedic insoles. But with insoles THIS ridiculously soft, we doubt you'd remove them anyway.


How durable are my Flatheads?

Flatheads are equipped to get you through the grind. 14+ hours and going strong! However, we recommend casual wear. Avoid rough use (training/gymming/trekking).


How long will a pair of Flatheads last me?

Our shoes are designed to be moisture, tear, and weather resistant. With good care, they can last over 18 months. But a bond with us? Now that lasts forever (excuse the cringe).


How comfortable are my Flatheads?

Imagine that you were walking on a cloud. Now that's what a Flatheads' shoe feels like. Yes, we're THAT ridiculously comfortable.


Are Flatheads weather resistant?

Call us Vivaldi because we're all about the four seasons. So yes, we last through all of them.


What colours do Flatheads come in?

Just the ones you want. Refer to the product pages below to see our complete range:

Will the colour of my Flatheads bleed or fade?

We like to look sharp, always. Our uppers have been tested for colorfastness & fade resistance. We recommend occasional cold water washes with soft detergents!


Are Flatheads eco-friendly?

Like most high-end shoes, we are made of modern materials. However, we respect sustainability and have launched our latest lines made of natural bamboo uppers, the Troos and Aurea.


Can Flatheads be used for athletic purposes like running, gym, and training?

Flatheads are all-day sneakers, suited to get you through the grind. We promise you 14+ hours of comfort but don't recommend rough usage for sports, gym, running, etc.


Will I sweat a lot in Flatheads?

Even the Summer of '69 couldn't have your feet sweating in a Flatheads. Our shoes are ridiculously breathable and keep your feet cool in the hottest summers.


Why are Flatheads expensive?

We believe in making shoes of substance, for a man of substance. Our quality is at par with international brands, having passed over 35 quality tests - which not many Indian brands can do.
