Gourmet takes their fantastic Spring/Summer 2013 footwear collection to the beaches of St. Bart’s for this very NSFW lookbook. Directed by David Dinetz and Dylan Trussell, this lookbook has to be one of the first footwear offerings to feature nudity, but hey, we’re not complaining.
Dr Martens present their Spring/Summer 2013 collection with a smart lookbook video. Looking back towards their iconic appropriation by groups like the punks and skins of 70′s Britain, Dr. Martens feature Fred & Nick of Pulse Films for the video. ”Tribes are not just premised solely on style, but also by substance. A shared attitude, a spirit, an instinct. For many, their first pair of Dr. Martens is both a statement of self expression and a stamp of belonging. An individual style, connected by a united spirit.”
Thom Browne’s designs are always a highlight for the fashion-addicted, and his Spring/Summer 2013 footwear offering is reason to see why. The New York designer has steadily grown his footwear offering over the last few seasons and this year is no exception, with a refined but substantial offering featuring penny loafers, broques and more traditional dress pieces. Hand made from the highest quality materials, these shoes – much like his entire SS 2013 range – has been described as “Preppy on acid” and we’re inclined to agree. Classic pieces are turned on their head using bright colors or materials, but the key is that Browne’s deft eye doesn’t distort the original silhouette and the results are all the better for it. Expect these pieces to hit Thom Browne retailers by March 2013.
Nike’s collaborative collection with Undercover for the Japanese “Gyakusou” Running Club has – over the past few seasons – become a much lauded product. Combining Nike’s depth of technical fabrics and materials with Undercover’s clean designs and construction makes for a fantastic offering yet again. Focusing on trail running for the Spring/Summer 2013 season, the collection features shorts, hooded jackets, base layers and of course both men’s and women’s running shoe options.
Gourmet shoes gives us a look at their expansive offering for Spring/Summer 2013, a decidedly clean selection of sneakers to see you into the warmer months. Fairly heavy on low-top silhouettes, the collection emphasizes a minimalist aesthetic when it comes to silhouettes design, instead using patterns like various camouflages, embossed leathers, patterned cotton and crocodile skin to give the shoes their variety and lasting impression. Check out the full collection in the gallery below and expect these to hit Gourmet retailers worldwide in the coming weeks.
French label Pierre Hardy releases a bold new colorway of the already distinct “Side-Zip” silhouette for Spring/Summer 2013. Drawing off a classic high-top, Pierre Hardy gives the silhouette a more contemporary remake with high-fashion elements. Constructed from a high-grade tan leather, the shoe’s appearance is dominated by the presence of a hot pink zipper running along the exterior of the shoe. Other elements include cushioned ankle support, a high ankle strap and metallic eyelets. Pierre Hardy’s Side Zip sneaker is available now at Japanese retailer RESTIR for around $600 USD.

Japanese-based label hobo expands their Spring/Summer 2013 offerings with some new footwear silhouettes. Consisting of three new models, the offering features a pair of oiled leather deck shoes with metal eyelets, leather laces and a woven midsole. An interpretation of a classic Desert Boot is well done, with d-link eyelets, crepe sole, leather lining and a lightly distressed suede upper. Lastly, hobo offers a pair of leather sandals that feature a chunky braided thong, buckle closure system and substantial sole. Expect these to land at hobo retailers worldwide in the coming weeks.
