Following on from the success of last season's Tech Runner, adidas and Rick Owens present this collaborative Springblade Low. Already a striking design in it's own right, the Springblade fuses pioneering technology and a cutting aesthetic to great effect. For this pairing Rick Owens has made an edgy shoe even edgier by juxtaposing harsh design elements with premium leathers and suede. Keeping things appropriate for summer the Springblade Low features lightweight mesh and is finished with a bonded toe area. A thoroughly unique affair that blends all that's great about these two titans.
Three colourways are now online priced at £490 in sizes UK7-11.
Combining sophisticated detail with maritime heritage, Barbour have aligned with White Mountaineering for an inspired capsule collection. White Mountaineering is an exciting Japanese imprint named after the dominant white glow of city buildings and for seasons now the brand has effortlessly reinvented technical outerwear.
This collection puts strong emphasis on fabric functions and through intelligent choices the collection is rugged, technical and beautiful all at the same time. Although oceans apart it's an organic collaboration for the two brands as Mr Aiziwa earliest Barbour memory was fly-fishing in the renowned oil jackets. Since then technology has allowed both brands to evolve into something never seen before.
A number of the pieces involve the unique 'Tempest' print and all feature enhanced details unique to this collection. From subtle maritime hints to bold statement pieces, it's a wholesome collection designed to ease the wearer between seasons. Our full offering is now available both online and in-store.
After making it's welcome return at the beginning of last year, the Stan Smith has elevated to dizzying heights. Once again the Stan is the go-to man for clean and simple footwear and a real flagship for the adidas brand. Last year everyone from Pharrell Williams to Raf Simons tried their hand at making their original but for this one adidas have kept it in-house.
Drawing upon on what makes the shoe great, adidas have made this one a tonal affair with a clean white spanning the entire shoe. The only break from the smooth leather is the subtle perforations and the embossing of the iconic Stan Smith portrait. A real minimalist affair and one that gives the tennis classic a real luxe aesthetic. This fresh colourway is now available online priced at £75 in sizes UK7-11.
After a spell in the limelight thanks to the Spezial collection last year, the Topanga is back at the forefront of terrace culture. An impressive silhoutte that seems to combine everything that's great about adidas Originals, the Topanga is a premium shoe in any guise. As well as being made to a high standard with intelligent materials, the Topanga has always been agonizingly hard to track down. With this in mind adidas have wisely dropped it into their mainline efforts and released two fresh colourways to start us off.
Both of these editions are made using a premium leather and both feature smooth suede accents. The defining feature is of course the grainy sole unit and the finishing touch the stamped tongue branding. Both colourways are now available both in-store and online.
Adding weatherproof armor to the ZX 8000's expansive arsenal, adidas Originals present this GORE-TEX twist on the time honored classic.

Already lightweight and already great looking, the ZX 8000 is now resistant as adidas continue their quest for innovation.
The adidas Originals ZX 8000 Weave GTX is now available online in limited numbers. Sizes UK7-11 are available priced at £100.
