Reebok Classic Leather Archive Revival
A white long lasting leather upper, meets a high absorption rubber outsole designed not only for comfort and endurance training, but for an extremely cool urban look too. It’s low-cut design is accompanied with a padded sockliner for added comfort. Pair yours with black skinny jeans, a loose white tee and a black leather jacket to complete the look.
adidas Originals Gazelle
These Gazelle shoes for men put the versatile and stylish icon in fresh colour for the season. They come in a lightweight upper with mesh and suede details and have a soft lining and rubber outsole.
Converse Jack Purcell OX
Virtually unchanged since the 30s, this sneaker recently underwent a bit of a makeover. Reinvented with a ½ inch thick comfort insole, it also features a lightly padded tongue and upper sockliner, nicer laces with metal eyelets, and a redesigned outsole for added comfort. Softer fabric lines the shoe in pleasing colours. And of course, the Distinctive Smile™ lends defining character to the shoe.
New Balance 247 Classic
Characterised by a streamlined silhouette with premium cushioning at the heel, these sneakers fuse functionality and form in a pair that’s set to become a wardrobe staple. Features include a net-detailed upper with logo-embellished overlays, a tidy lace up and branding tabs at the tongue. A versatile design, they’ll complement denims and more.
Nike Air Max Thea
The Air Max Thea features a sleek, low-cut silhouette. It’s a running inspired twist on the original with a focus on minimalism without compromising on comfort – a goal achieved via understated styling and lightweight cushioning. Featuring a textile-based upper, synthetic and leather overlays, Solarsoft sockliner for comfort and a Phylon midsole and outsole for traction.
Vans Rainbow Pack
Vans Old Skool Rainbow Foxing is a low profile, lace-up style that’s become a favourite amongst skaters because of its durable canvas upper, padded tongue and lining, as well as signature Waffle Outsole for superior stability.
The original Vans style, the Authentic, gets a rainbow tape treatment in this low top and white lace-up profile. Complete with sturdy canvas uppers, metal eyelets, and signature waffle rubber outsoles. Pair with high-waisted skinnies and your skateboard.
