A classic brand embedded in the American outdoors, Filson is a staple name for timeless and functional menswear. Offering up rugged quality for over 100 years, Clinton Filson's company makes items that worked then and still work now. Entering the market at the right time, Filson was introduced just before the Gold Rush when workmen were heading North in need of reliable clothing for rugged conditions.
The Gold Rush faded into history, but Filson kept listening to his customers, and outdoorsmen kept coming to Filson for rugged clothes. Drawing from his past experience outfitting loggers, he soon added clothing for the timber industry, including the Filson Cruiser, the garment that was to earn Filson a place in history. Designed and named by C.C. Filson, and patented on March 3, 1914, the Cruiser Shirt continues to influence Filson's best selling items.
Over the years, Filson's philosophy has never changed: Make sure it's the absolute best. Clinton Filson spent a lot of time talking to his customers and refining his designs to their specifications. So it's not surprising that the items that worked then still work today, over 100 years later. Comfort, protection and durability never go out of style. Our Filson Autumn & Winter '15 collection will be available online in the coming days but is available in-store now.
A reproduction of the archived New York made with a meticulous attention to detail, this Spezial release is a touching tribute to a low-key legend. When Gary Aspden and the team touched down in Buenos Aries a couple of years ago, nobody could've predicted the magnitude of the collection in Carlos Ruiz' sportswear shop. This memorable piece of Sole Searching became one of the most defining moments on the Spezial timeline and a research trip of epic proportions. It's a heart-warming story we can all relate to and the New York SPZL "Carlos" is a huge thank you for the 75 year old's hospitality and co-operation.
As with all Spezial footwear this Argentina Blue New York colourway features stunning consideration. From the Carlos portrait on the tongue to the webbing around the mid-sole, this is an almost 1:1 outing and a sympathetic take on an iconic shoe. Not just reserved for the legendary adidas Originals hoarder, the New York SPZL "Carlos" will be available in limited numbers as part of a pack releasing December 3rd. Check out the Neil Bedford film stills below and stay tuned for further information regarding the release.
Adding an iridescent reptile element to the advanced ZX Flux series, adidas Originals present this "Xeno" edition. Coming alive in the correct lighting conditions, the fragmented overlays shine multi-coloured whilst a black upper keeps them unassuming in daylight. Whilst a futuristic interpretation of the ZX Flux it still retains ZX DNA with the distinct heel-cage and TORSION equipped sole unit.
Limited numbers available from 00:01GMT Saturday 21st November (£99). Remaining stock will be available at our Albert Road store from it's opening.
