2012 marks the 20th anniversry of the debut of the Puma Blaze…which blew me away back thenapart from Reeboks Pump there was nothing like it. The 1992 original has been reworked with a modern sole and techinal upper in a subtle black & white colourway which is great becuase I always remember the originals colourways looked like the inside of a LSD trip.

Never a label to follow blindly in the footsteps of others, Maison Martin Margiela‘s collaboration with Swedish retailer H&M will further distinguish itself from its predecessors with a collection of footwear. The Belgian fashion house announced earlier that the collection will consist of “re-editions” of archival classics and the shoes will follow suit — silhouettes taken from MMM’s back catalogs and reiterated for the mass consumer. Ardent fans of the label will likely recognize the 6 models that will release with the clothing — a gum-soled, high-top sneaker in white and red colorways, along with a slip-on and ankle boot that will be offered in tan, black and paint-treated versions. Look for more details of the November 15 release as they surface.

Clarks’ limited edition 40th anniversary Desert Trek shoe. Accompanying this is the brand’s collaboration with the musically iconic Trojan Records. The efforts involve a commissioning of four artists to remix original tracks from the record company’s archives for Clarks’ #ORIGINALSREMIXED campaign, commemorating Jamaica’s 50 years of independence. Bringing the focus back on the shoe, the Trojan Records x Clarks Desert Trek model is offered in tan leather, a unique style that differs from the original Brown leather or suede versions known to most. Notable detailing includes a brandished Trojan logo on the quarter and the Desert Trek logo hit on the heel, while the insole reveals the model’s celebrated title.

With each consecutive collection, the range of Stussy apparel has developed better and better since its early years — each season adopting new styles and venturing into newer garment executions. For Autumn Winter 2012 the Stussy MFG range debuts a military-inspired MA1 Jacket that is mocked up in olive or black. Initially developed in the 1950s, the MA1 jacket taps the bomber jacket roots with both a classic execution as well as in two iconic colorways. Manufactured from a 100% nylon shell, the jacket features a bold orange interior lining, a zip front, snap button front pockets and is rounded out by a Stussy MFG embroidery tag near the lower cuffed hem.
Saddle shoe inspired sneakers have been making the rounds for sometime, adding to that trend Converse has nicely crafted the Jack Purcell in that style. The build is set in leather in a colorway that blends a beige sole with a black and green upper. Pretty nice!
