Courser is a hand-crafted connoisseur brand dedicated to blending select elements of performance engineering and technology with the finest materials and craftsmanship to enhance the luxury footwear experience.

What is a Courser?

A swift-footed dog that hunts by sight rather than scent. Coursers are known for their speed, sleek build, and elegant gait. They are our inspiration in combining the worlds of luxury and performance into a new element of timeless allure and handmade refinement.

Craftsmanship & Innovation

Courser Uno in Acid Green

The Upper

With utmost care, we handpick a featherweight 0.5mm nubuck leather for our outermost layer. Through meticulous sanding and gentle buffing, a smooth, natural velvet unfolds. To ensure a fit that embraces both support and flexibility, our soft nubuck is mated to an unyeilding fabric, Dyneema, then bonded with precise heat to create zones impervious to stretching. This fusion of materials results in uppers that provide unwavering stability and evolving comfort.

Proprietary Midsole

At the heart of Courser lies our proprietary midsole, a product of relentless innovation. Crafted from a compression resistant polyurethane (PU) foam, it surpasses the durability of conventional EVA materials found in most running shoes, boasting a remarkable 2-3x greater resilience. Despite its inherent strength, this PU foam remains lightweight, thanks to Courser's pioneering air-blown technique. An enduring combination of high resiliency and exceptional comfort, your shoes age gracefully without succumbing to wear.

Handmade Italian Construction

Under the watchful eye and guiding hands of our Italian craftspeople, we fashion our shoes using a proprietary construction method. This technique ensures a more refined, adaptive fit, combining lightness with flexibility. The outcome is a glove-like feel, as the shoe envelops the foot, allowing it to move with confidence and freedom, as if wearing a handcrafted slipper.

Carbitex carbon fiber plate used in Courser luxury sneakers

Advanced Engineered Carbon Fiber

Within every Uno resides a full-length carbon fiber plate, meticulously engineered to the precise specifications of every shoe size. This featherweight modern marvel enhances energy return during dynamic movements, amplifying the kinetic movements of running. Even during moments of pause, its presence ensures stability. By stabilizing the ankle joint and relieving strain on the calves, the plate safeguards against potential injuries, allowing the toes to rest naturally and securely.

Bio-based Dyneema Fiber

Our successful use of such thin nubuck leather is due to a revolutionary fiber - Dyneema. Embraced by some of the most demanding industries in military, maritime and law enforcement, Dyneema is the world's strongest fiber. 15x stronger than steel, yet is can float on water. It is the first ever bio-based, ultra-high molecular polyethylene Dyneema fiber. By fusing our nubuck leather with Dyneema we create an incredibly thin, soft, and supple upper with unmatched strength and durability.
