Missoni Desert Boot

desertMissoni brings its own touch to the classic desert boot for their Spring/Summer ’13 line with meticulous craftsmanship and the brand’s signature patterns. Their take on the desert boot has the classic suede upper decorated with embroidered detailing that sits atop a leather and crepe sole…over the £350 mark which may stop a few purchasing though.

Common Projects Spring Summer 2013

20130130-091745.jpg

When founders Prathan Poopat and Flavio Girolami started Common Projects, their mission was to create minimalist, comfortable sneakers, made in Italy using only the finest materials. In addition to a utilitarian design, the shoes were virtually anonymous, with exterior branding limited to the article number and shoe size, factory-stamped in gold foil near the heel. The brand’s Spring/Summer 2013 collection is largely an extension of that original mission statement, with new slip-on sneakers, tennis shoes and crepe-soled loafers joining reliable standbys like the Achilles and Tournament, finished in new colours and materials for spring.

Mark McNairy x Tres Bien Wool & Suede Boots

mcnairy style raconteur

Mark McNairy the collaboration king who has worked with more people than I’ve had hot dinners has come together with  Très Bien again  with this latest rendition of a Brogue Boot, and to be fair smashes it out of the park. Made in the UK from suede and wool, small detailing like the waxed rounded laces and pull heel tab provides a nice touch while the leather lining, red colored stormwelt and vibram sole completes a great design. Will be buying as soon as I finish this post

A Bathing Ape Mountain Sta

 

For the urban explorers out there A Bathing Ape has just released the hybrid Mountain Sta sneaker. The high top Mountain Sta blends traditional hiking boot details with a modern sneaker sole for a new look. The suede upper is complemented by D-ring lace hooks, hiking boot laces and a contrasting leather ankle collar. Available in a more traditional looking beige colorway as well as sporty black colorway, both feature a thick white rubber sole.

 

Maison Martin Margiela for H&M 2012 Autumn Winter Footwear Collection

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.

Trojan Records x Clarks Originals 40th Anniversary Desert Trek

 

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.

 

Swims Autumn Winter 2012

 

The Norwegian climate has never been one kind to footwear. The wet season often required footwear to revolve around either old beaters or galoshes, both which yielded little sartorial flair. The creation of SWIMS looked to redefine the modern-day galosh, providing an intersection of timeless shoe designs with waterproof and water resistant performance. The range of offerings spans some familiar favorites including desert boots, brogues and Chelsea boots. Look for SWIMS at select retailers globally.

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.

Spotted at menswear extravaganza Pitti, this sees Clarks step into collaboration territory with fellow brit label YMC for Spring/Summer 2013. You Must Create always present something interesting in their footwear collections and this is no exception.
