Success has poured in from the release of Propulsion 2. Now there’s another limited edition colour available. The Propulsion 2 is now available in zinc metal and there are only 200 pairs available!

This release is only available from their site here. Check out the images below including the original Propulsion 2’s (Black and White)
Gilded Age’s products are carefully handcrafted which gives them an unique age old look as well as an imperfect and weathered appearance.

Each pair features unique hand done abrasion, indigo leather patch details and are constructed with organic Japanese selvage denim. Both are available now at Son of a Stag and Guilded Age stockists.

Here’s another unique sneaker design from Lanvin’s Spring/Summer 2010 shoe collection. Navy neoprene fabric is covered with brown cut-out leather panels and burgundy trim outlines the top. This sneaker ($712) also includes brown laces, a white rubber sole and a navy leather pull-up tab. Lanvin remains a step ahead of their competition when it comes to interesting shoe design concepts and so it’s unsurprising that their footwear has gained more popularity over the years.
