Former NASA engineer Alexander Gross & Grandmaster Joel Castillo were in absolute agreement when they designed the Talón . No matter how functional the shoe might be, quality & durability should never be compromised. They really want you to enjoy your shoes for years to come!
We are committed to putting the fun in functional fashion! If there are any issues with fitment or durability, just contact us at talonfootwear.com. We will be happy to exchange any product that does not hold up to your comfortability & rigorous "real world" standards.
No one wants to wear the same shoes that everyone else is wearing; shoes are one major way we express ourselves! These unique products, literally designed by a rocket scientist & a martial art grandmaster will make you stand out in a crowd. Stay tuned for the amazing latest styles in development for Talón in future!!
