In stock at Singapore’s Surrender is Mr. Hare’s S/S ’11 collection entitled, “Ain’t No App For That!”. Offerings include an array of styles which look to utilize uppers made from leather, suede and even patent leather. The tassled mocs look amazing as do the cap toe dress shoes, all of which come in a pristine camel finish.
Surprising to say this but our favorite boat shoe this year is coming from a brand not known for its footwear. The Camp Mocs from Barbour are really well crafted and the time dedicating to cooking these up shows in the final product. The full navy leather upper works well with the stitched rubber razor etched sole. Barbour tartan arch support gives way for better comfort. The hand stitched shoe also features rawhide leather laces and brass eyelets.
Weren’t feeling the snuff suede LWBs we showcased a little while back? Well, these are a much easier decision. the tan finish is much more versatile even though the style is no different from those featuring the snuff suede shell. Alden’s been making this style and finish combo for quite sometime but we had to highlight it because it’s so timeless. Leffot’s owner, Steve, puts it best: “If you plan on treating yourself to one awesome pair of shoes this spring these LWB in tan suede are a most righteous choice.”
Though we’ll be getting the opportunity to check out the entire Wolverine 1000 Mile collection for Fall 2011 at next week’s Project show in Vegas, here’s a quick look at what to expect. We’ve covered the Addison boot from this season’s collection in the past but look for this rendition next winter. The two-tone finish is epic to say the least and is definitely a pair we’ll be looking to get our hands on when it hits stockists worldwide in the coming months.
London’s Bstore has been known for making some great pieces over its history and you know an item is special when someone’s willing to resurrect it back to life after discontinuation. Parisian retailer decided to do just that by requesting a limited edition re-issue of Bstore’s ‘Mario’ shoe.
When London brand Bstore is discontinuing our favorite shoe style from their catalog, we have no choice but to request a SPECIAL RE-ISSUE for FrenchTrotters! Available in leather black, leather brown, plus FrenchTrotters design: grey canvas, white eyelets with contrasted navy laces on a natural leather sole.
Look for all three offerings to be available exclusively through FrenchTrotters.
Bathing Ape has been collaborating with Japanese retailer United Arrows on the highly sought-after Mr. Bathing Ape collection since back in 2009 and they’re still delivering some top-notch goods. “This season’s offerings include a partnership with heritage shoe company, Regal and luxury textile factory, Dormeuil, producing a series of American and British styled suits.”
Present London has gotten some of the pieces from the collection. Check it out after the jump.
Iconic American shoemaker Yuketen has been dishing out staple items for quite some time and their Country Loafer is no different. It’s been fitted with a tweaked upper that works better with the more rugged crepe sole. The stitching detail on this shoe is worth noting as it’s all hand sewn with such precision. The result is impeccable.
visvim‘s Spring 2011 are looking extremely promising and there’s no better place to start than the footwear. The Grizzly Boots Mid Folk headlines the most recent drop and it’s going to be available in four different colorways, some of which you can check out after the jump. The detailing is tremendous on this beauty. We think the hand sewn Italian canvas uppers work well with the extremely durable vegetable-tanned cowhide and waxed kudu hide. The boot’s super absorbent of moisture so much so that visvim suggests ditching socks altogether. The Vibram outsole will keep things comfortable while the inner zip fastener comes from Swiss brand riri.
Introducing the ‘Denim Blue’ Boot from the fine folks at Grenson and Tenue de Nîmes. This is the duo’s second collaboration and is truly a remarkable one. The boot is inspired by an old infantry boot from the late 1800s (Military FTW!). Grenson’s ‘Glenn’ boots feature a special natural outsole with a combined logo sign and tone-on-tone leather laces.
Each pair is hand-made in England and will be available exclusively at Tenue de Nîmes.
Wisconsin’s Context has teamed up with Alden once again for the second coming of the Roy Boot. The Rough Roy Boot is made on the Trubalance last and is cut and sewn using the rough side of Mill Dyed Earth Chamois leather processed by Horween Leather Company. Chamois is basically oiled nubuck and is easy to care for. The suede upper is placed atop Alden’s plantation crepe sole and is known to be extremely comfortable.
This Roy Boot, like the original, will be available exclusively at context, with pre-order deliveries to be made in May 2011. Patience is a virtue, friends.
