Always perfectly crafted, but with a twist, Martin Margiela executes its design language perfectly with their new oxfords. The vegetable tanned upper have a clean yet classic silhouette while a semi-transparent sole gives it that signature Margiela touch.

Christian Louboutin Fredapoitiers Studded Suede Loafers

 

Christian Louboutins aren’t just for the women in your life he makes movers for men too, and they are getting better & better in my opinion. The Fredapoitier loafer is made has black suede uppers, slip-on and features two rows of gunmetal studs along the bottom of the shoe next to a thin midsole red trim, black leather soles and the signature red on the bottom….pretty cool in my opinion.

 

 

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.
