What’s Your Number?

 

Authentic American giants New Balance bring an authenticity to their trainers that is hard to emulate. Each style is named with a model number, because the emphasis is on the company’s philosophy and heritage, not the individual styles themselves. With a variety of designs and commitment to domestic manufacturing, New Balance is in a league of their own.

The 620

With a retro, athletic design, the 620 is a stand out style from New Balance that is eye catching for all the right reasons.

 

 

The 420

In a rich burgundy, the 420 is a casual athletic style, inspired by US track and field teams and the epitome of urban sportswear.

 

 

The 373

Re issued for the Fall 2013 season in a neat colour combination, the 373 is one of the most recognizable New Balance silhouettes.

 

 

The 574

 The 574 is a design steeped in tradition. Updated from the original 1988 style, it’s looking clean and fresh in this sporty colour

 

 The 565

Bringing together the heritage and retro styling of this classic brand and a modernised, technical design, the 565 is a true multi-tasker.

Trend Focus: Men’s Monochrome

 MONOCHROME: Simplicity is underrated,

don’t you think?

The fashion world’s gone mono-manic and luckily it’s got to be the easiest Spring/Summer ’13 trend to nail. The black and white brotherhood is timeless and trans-seasonal, smart or casual and a completely blank canvas to work with the rest of  your wardrobe.

And so the hype surrounding the crisp Converse All Star Mono collection is BIG – unsurprisingly. The iconic silhouette of the basketball sneaker has gone back to basics to become clean, classic and when matched with it’s contrary, totally edgy.  Check out the leather styles for added rock and roll.

 

 

monochrome + micro-trend

A key micro-trend  for AW13 is the men’s slip-on shoe. The ultimate travel necessity, the slip-on is comfortable and wearable with an air of continental cool.
Cue Flossy. Founded 25 years ago, Flossy plimsolls are the ultimate combination of comfort and style, originally worn by sailing crew and artists in Spanish coastal towns. Don’t knock ’em until you’ve tried ’em. You’ll never want to take them off, and you’ll never have to, when wearing these wardrobe-staple shades : –
