New Balance H710F

01

Info

—01. Grey suede upper.

Words

New Balance is great - for the classics - but its not too often the have a new colorway or a different model that I find overly appealing. These hiking shoes however have that classic appeal and clean silhouette, but the simplicity of the grey suede on the off-white sole make them just about as good as they can get.

Preview: Batten Sportswear

01

Info

—01. Launching next spring.

Words

It's not that often that a new brand comes along that I really like. From the product to the people to the branding, its difficult to get it right. Last week in New York, one of our friends showed us his new brand. Batten Sportswear isn't breaking new ground in terms of the fashion world, but the story and products are well thought through, really nicely made and offer a clean and concise perspective and interpretation of American sportswear.

Viberg for Four Horsemen

01

Info

—01. Tonal oxford.

Words

Four Horsemen recently released their second shoe with Viberg Boot. The local connection seems to be working nicely, but this oxford is quite the departure from the first collaboration between the two. This brogue oxford uses a nice tonal look, simple detailing and the well known and loved Vibram Christy sole.

I'll admit that the world of eye-wear is something I don't know a whole lot about. I know what I like when I see it, and Oliver Peoples have been making beautiful pieces for years. Surrender has received some great vintage styles and used some lovely photos to compliment them.

Visvim FW11 Items

01

Info

—01. Beautifully dyed and hand made.

Words

Visvim has begun to release images of their Fall-Winter 2011 collection online and among the selection there are some great items. These are a couple of my favorites previewed last week. The indigo dyed pieces, patched shirts and shoes and really nice color palette struck me in a pleasant way. While I haven't seen any new footwear I'm dying to get, the accessories are especially looking great so far.

JC Walkers Work Oxford

01

Images

—01. Navy suede.
—02. Multi-tone laces.

Words

There are plenty of good options for oxford work boots and a lot of people have their preference when it comes to footwear, a strong brand association or recognition within the framework of that given company. I like stumbling across new brands. JC Walkers makes a nice oxford for a relatively affordable price. The colour of suede is beautiful and the two-tone laces are a subtle addition that works well with this shoe I think. They also come in a few other colour-ways that are worth checking out.
