size-x-nike-urban-safari-pack-part-2-1

Since making its debut in the spring of 2012, Nike Sportswear‘s Roshe Run has undoubtedly become one of the stars of Nike‘s ever-growing stable of minimalist footwear. Now, following the release of part 1 of its “Urban Safari” pack – featuring the Air Max Light alongside the mid-top Toki – UK retailer size? has tapped the plush, lightweight silhouette for the second installment of its ACG-inspired collection. Unlike the recently-released tonal “Safari” pack, size?’s take on the Roshe applies the classic pattern only to the upper’s leather Swoosh as speckling dots the entirety of the Solarsoft-topped Phylon sole. As with the first release, the “Urban Safari” editions of the Roshe appear in Sand/Hyper Blue-Crimson and Black/Poison Green-Pink colorways. Look for both to be available in-store and online beginning Friday, June 14 for £80

Wise Footwear

There is a new kid on the block in the hugly corporate washed world of footwear. Wise Footwear (Wisdom In Small Elements)  is the brain child of South Londoner Tim Gleig a 23 year old footwear design graduate from LCF Cordeainers. After struggling to find opportunities within the footwear industry he decided to go it alone, he believed there was a massive gap in the market for men’s lifestyle footwear. Wise takes inspiration from classic running silhouettes and beautiful suedes and leathers to create well crafted products. The first product the Milliner which is a slick lifestyle shoe featured in 3 colours black,teal and grey. Watch this space for a more detailed look closer to launch

J. Crew Launches U.K. E-commerce site

It’s about bloody time! We in the U.K. can now look more like our American counterparts with the launch of the U.K. J. Crew e-commerce shop. The whole catalogue looks to be available. Coming this Summer to a screen-reader near you.

Toomuchposse! Spring 2011

UK brand toomuchposse! are back for 2011 with a collection of 4 T-shirts and 2 Champion sweatshirts. Simplicity is key throughout, with mainly black imagery on white tees and a fairly reserved look over all, but I can’t argue with any of it.

The four white tees – titled Lord, Monk, Sade and Talisman – feature a mixture of black photographic and illustrated screen-prints, with a splash of colour in only the latter design. The real highlight are the Champion brand crewneck sweatshirts, featuring ‘Too Much Posse’ text across the chest, and coming in black and grey. Although I’ve never been too convinced by the fit of Champion sweats, it’s hard to disagree with a classic staple like this, and TMP have done it well, pricing up at £65. The full collection will be available from the toomuchposse! online shop as of 21st March, 12 noon.
