Who doesn’t love a collaboration? We recently teamed up with the very talented London-based menswear designer Simon Carter to create an exclusive and premium footwear collection, only available on our website and in our stores across the UK. Simon Carter is renowned for affordable luxury, and exquisite craftsmanship and exceptional quality are at the heart of the collection.
The smart casual range is comprised of intricate patterns, iconic prints and creative quirks with quality, integrity and affordability at the forefront. Including beautifully crafted leather and stunning suede, the collection also features Simon’s quirky animal icon – his dog called Gervais – which creates a fun and personable brand identitiy.
The Elgar boot is a fabulous black suede Chelsea boot with beautiful detailing, including printed leather linings, laser etched heel branding, intricately branded soles and subtle stitch details. Available in black, blue and tan, there’s a colour for every occasion whether you want to keep it classic or be a little more adventurous.
Simon Carter was exceptionally keen on the collaboration and said in an interview with Drapers: “As a London based designer, it makes perfect sense to work with a great British success story. SOLETRADER knows shoes better than anyone, and shares my passion for great product. I’m really excited to be working with them and bringing Simon Carter footwear to a wider audience.”
If we can’t sway you with suede, these leather Holst boots are suitably suave. With an inside zip for ease and available in black or brown, these are the perfect smart boots for any occasion. If a lace up is more your thing, the Delius boots come in a beautiful brown or classic black, with laser etched heel branding. Detail is at the core of the collaboration.
Our Buying Controller, Derrick Hoyle, said: “We are absolutely delighted to be working with Simon and his eponymous menswear brand. The brand is full of quirky and unusual details that have allowed us to develop a unique collection – it was a lot of fun. There is a gap in the market for this type of product and it fits seamlessly into our pricing structure.”
If you’re more of a smart shoe kinda guy, these tan lace-up Tavener shoes come with brogue detailing, printed leather linings and intricately branded leather soles for an exquisitely smart footwear option, also available in black. For something without the brogue detailing, the Britten shoes in black or tan are certainly quite the classic. Gentlemanly with a unique edge.
The collaboration ranges from £90 – £120 and can only be found here at SOLETRADER. There are 16 options across seven styles, six colours and two sole types. The collection includes a premium calf leather range of formal loafers and boots and a suede range of more casual styles, all leather lined and made in Portugal.
The full collection can be found here but remember, you won’t find it anywhere else! For our full range of shoes, head over to our website. If you’re after the latest styles as and when they drop, like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest – we don’t bite!
