All about Amberjack

First, let’s get into the brand itself. 

Meet Amberjack– the footwear brand offering luxury shoe styles, for less. Made from high-quality materials with movement in mind, Amberjack sells a variety of shoe styles and shoe care options designed to ensure you look and feel your best all day long. After years of working with top brands in the fashion space, Amberjack has partnered with some of the best tanneries in the world and created new materials for soles to develop a selection of shoes that rivaled others on the market. With that, Amberjack also works with craftsmen in Portugal to create stylish footwear styles that feel great when worn.   

From dress shoes to boots to loafers, Amberjack has something for everyone- for every season. The brand prides itself on using quality materials and keeping performance technology top of mind during development to ensure you can rock footwear that will last all day without compromising style or comfort. 

The brand is also sustainability-friendly, in which it sources leather from an ISO-certified sustainable tannery. The brand also manufactures shoes in a fair-wage factory, uses plastic-free packaging, and implements 100% carbon-neutral shipping methods. 

The Slip-On

HOLR recently had the opportunity to put the brand’s Slip-On in Obsidian ($189) to the test. Labeled as dress shoes, reinvented, The Slip-On is available in three colorways (Obsidian, Chestnut, and Honey) and offers all-around comfort. It can also be easily dressed up or down depending on the event. Wear it to work and then out for happy hour, as The Slip-On is crafted to move with you, thanks to integrated performance details such as pre-stretched A-grade leather and a mechanically-designed outsole. 

Here are some additional highlights of the Slip-On to consider:

  • Since the brand’s soles are made with new, proprietary materials that are designed to ensure all-day comfort, you can count on these shoes to take you from day to night, no matter the occasion.
  • Made with premium A-grade full-grain leather sourced from the top tanneries in the world, The Slip-On is stylish in design and crafted using high-quality materials which means that they will stand the test of time- in more ways than one.
  • The Slip-On features heat-activated arch support which means the shoe will thoughtfully form to your foot and make it feel as though you are walking on a cloud!
  • The dual-density outsole uses high-performance athletic technology which means you can wear these all day with full flexibility support.
  • The super soft sheepskin lining will also up the overall comfort level, meaning you can choose to wear this style with or without socks.   

HOLR’s Review

After reading glowing customer reviews, I was excited to give The Slip-On a go, as other users were raving about how great the shoe looked and felt. After trying on and wearing the Slip-On, I can confirm that the shoe really is as comfortable as it claims. I also appreciated the thoughtful details behind the overall design, because The Slip-On truly can take you from morning to night thanks to the stylish leather materials used, combined with the arch support and dual-density outsoles. I could also really feel the sneaker-like flexibility when on the move! 

Overall, this is a shoe that I can see myself wearing on an almost year-round basis for multiple occasions. Not only are they super comfortable, offering flexibility and support when worn, but the style is also super versatile. Since they feature a modern, casual yet elevated take on the classic dress shoe, they’re great for things like going to work or heading out for dinner. These are a timeless wardrobe staple you will have for years to come. 

The Amberjack Slip-Ons officially get the HOLR stamp of approval.
