Vans Vault continues to step up its game, with a forthcoming collaboration with Brooks England as previewed in this teaser image. One of England’s foremost leather goods producers teams up with one of the world’s top sneaker brands to produce a spectacular lace-up that has all of Vans’ functionality and comfort, and all of Brooks’s quality leather. Release is planned for July 2010.
Another great release from New Balance is coming in the fall — the H710. This comes in the boot form of shoes, not their classic runners that everyone is wearing. This looks like a good hiking boot with the laces and eyeholes, the subtle uppers with nice suede. The combination of those things give it a rugged look that seems like it is built with durability in mind.
Converse teams with historic American lifestyle brand Woolrich to produce this sturdy collection for Fall 2010. Onto their third collaboration, the collection features iconic Woolrich hunter plaids and woolen fabrics to update and enhance traditional Converse models including the classic Chuck Taylor. Perfect for the rugged nature of the Fall / Winter 2010 season, this collection is a celebration in the tradition of classic Americana.
Hudson Shoes was kind enough to give us a great look into their new fall lineup. The huge gallery of images (below) is quality inspiration for the months to come. The line features a massive array of cuts, from A to Oxfords, for both men and women. Mainly focused on the dress side, Hudson Shoes finds creative spice in the addition of straps, stitching, and a variety of well worn leather colorways. After you look through the gallery (which you will), you’ll probably want to know that the fall lineup ‘H’ by Hudson shoes is available at Coutie.
Converse will be releasing the classic Jack Purcell sneaker in a variety of styles as part of their Fall 2010 Collection. Two high tops will be featured in a black/white and cream colorway, as well as two low-tops including red/white and cream. All the shoes maintain the use of premium quality materials and welcome design changes, without taking away from the classic silhouettes Converse is known for. Expect them to be released this Fall.
Timberland’s new Fall 2010 collection is a fresh twist on Timberland’s initiative. We’re all used the the traditional 6 inch with the padded ankle with the thick sole; but this new Fall collection brings us some new editions. First is the Counterpane Chukka Boat Shoe with a unique toe, next is the Tackhead Surveyor Cap Toe with a very thick inner. Lastly, we find ourselves looking at a beautiful pair of 6 inch Colrain Reissue’s. For the Counterpane’s and Tackhead’s, you’re looking at $325, and for the Colrain’s’ they will retail at $400. Make sure you buy yours at Nordstrom’s, Barney’s, Saks Fifth Avenue, Kitson, Fred Segal, American Rag, and Bloomingdale’s.
