From a very simple beginning, Flavio Girolami and Prathan Poopat’s Common Projects has been steadily playing with new colors, cuts and materials. This season, the sophisticated sneaker brand branches out into Arctic and Cowboy Boot shapes, while tweaking some old favorites with an array of details and finishing touches. Now available from colette.
Maison Martin Margiela’s Canvas Leather Boot Sneaker ($448) is a modern rendition of a classic shoe design. Taking the mid boot style to the next level, this shoe combines the unique characteristics of a Margiela boot with the durability and endurance of a sneaker. Aged canvas and brown leather trim provide the upper portion of the boot sneaker and a gum rubber sole supplies the bottom. Other notable details include a buckle ankle strap and an inner ankle zip. Available at Oki-ni.
Japanese fashion favorite, Comme des Garçons, is teaming up with Swedish footwear outfitter, Tretorn, on a limited run of canvas sneakers ($126) for the summer. The Tretorn summer staple gets a slight Comme des Garçons twist with crisp, clean lines and green piping to finish the look. Buy HERE
You’ve probably seen a million of these by now, but we think we’ll stick to one of the originators. Sebago’s Stormsail Boot ($136) is a mid cut boot with pebble grain leather and 360 degree lacing. Check them out HERE
Previewed back in January, the newest range from Mr. Hare is making its way to select stockists. For March, we see the release of three styles from the collection, including the King Tubby, Sir Coxsone, and Jerry Lee, all falling in line with the brand’s knack for clean, classic designs and top notch construction. Available now via Surrender.
Common Projects, the downtown shoe company best known for its sleek designs and gold-stamped numbers, created a fantastic pair of rustic hiking boots for Robert Geller’s Fall runway show. The rough, dark suede lace-up boots feature zippers on the instep and double buckles at the top. Thus far it seems like these were created solely for the show, but stay tuned for further developments if any type of release comes to light.
