The Tarmac is C.QP's Quarter Top sneaker and our first model. It is laid back yet elegant, making it the perfect everyday sneaker. This shoe is a hybrid that will work as well in the office as on the day off; out at night or on a trip to the beach. The name Tarmac comes from C-QP's love for racing and travelling, and the fact that it is a platform product for us.
C.QP sneakers are produced around there own specially developed last, designed to give a narrow and elegant appearance seldom found in shoes of this kind. Their inner soles have arch support and several layers of cushioning. To ensure further support and stability, soles have a shank, normally only found in fine dress shoes. Only the finest materials are used; from the leather, suede or nubuck of the upper and the smooth calf leather of the inner lining, stitched to the outsole made of natural rubber. All materials are sourced in Italy and Portugal.
C.QP products are designed in Sweden and manufactured in a small, carefully selected factory in Portugal. Approximately 80 per cent of the production is finished by hand by skilled craftsmen, giving each product a unique look and feel. We personally spend a great deal of time in the factory with the people who are crafting our products, to ensure the highest possible quality and finish.
All C.QP sneakers are delivered with two pairs of laces, a custom tote bag and a care instruction card.
