Concept by Cruise x Trickers : The Unusual Suspects

Full-Comp-2000

Concept is the little brother of indi store Cruise…their first design collaboration is with master-shoemaker Trickers. The debut is a subtle slimmed down reworking of the classic long wing Richard & Bourton brogue. Each style has been given a unique character and name pertaining to each material used.

The “Habana” Longwing pays homage to all things Cuban (minus the ridiculous heel) constructed from rich Cuba waxed suede uppers and subtle brogue detailing. The shoe is finished off with a Barbour Welted Danite sole for added durability.

The “Aristocrat” Longwing pays homage to sartorial function and English eccentricity. Reworking the classic Richard Long Wing with a slimmed down contemporary fit they are hand made using the finest Naster Burnished calfskin and feature a bold contemporary twist in the form of a vibrant orange Itshide sole.

The “Artiste” Bourton Derby Brogue takes an obscure reference from the Sienna clay used in the production of oil paint pigments and is crafted from textured Sienna scotch grain leather and contrasting Dainite sole.

The “Highland Fox” Bourton Derby Brogue pays homage to the elusive fox of the Outer Hebrides seen here in rich coppery brown Reppelo suede.

Here is a look at an all new project between Tricker’s and Norse Projects with a run that consists of 6 iterations. Featuring a Repello Suede Brogue Boot, a Scotch Grain Super Boot and a Two Tone Super Boot this makes for a compromising installation. The repello suede brogues feature a durable Dianite outsole so you’re ready for the outdoors. Then the Scotch Grain Super Boot is highlighted by a sublime scotch grain leather on a chunky Vibram morflex sole unit for serious arch and heel support. And finally the Two Tone Super Boots has a top notch casual option with an extremely comfortable crepe wedge sole and two tone suede colour blocking. Finished with hiking laces and speed hook eyelets.

Tricker’s x Comme des Garcons Junya Watanabe MAN Wingtip Sneaker


Comme des Garcons have teamed up again with Tricker’s to great effect with the stand out designer Junya Watanabe working on another great rendition of this wingtip sneaker. Not for the first time have we seen this model come out, although this fall we can enjoy a new pallet of colors applied to the 4-hole wingtip suede design. With the classic welted sole replaced with a white rubber tennis sneaker styled sole it makes for a more subdued look
