The Generic Man has teamed with hip Los Angeles retailer UNDEFEATED for an exlusive ‘Army Vs Navy’ Collection of mens shoes. These fantastically crafted and realized pieces are a fusion of land or sea elements, and are packed with referential details, and materials that make this collection both stylish and unique. There is a certain rawness to each shoe, which lends itself to the images and ideals of both the seafarer, and landlover. Exlusive to UNDEFEATED LA, a B.B.Q. Launch Party will be held this Saturday at their flagship store, where you can debate Army vs Navy.
The blue shoes featured show chambray that was repurposed from United States Navy chambray shirts, while the boat shoes are made from peacoats. Rounding out the three is a pair of chukkas made using mosquito netting from the US Forestry Service.
Street label Undefeated teams up with the couturiers at The Generic Man for an upcoming collaborative collection, previewed here. It’s a more high fashion take on men’s shoes, but with Undefeated’s touch for comfort and accessibility. We see some desert boots, boat shoes and chukkas in this collection, but no word on when or where we’ll be able to pick this collection up.
Adidas Originals teamed up with Beauty & Youth United Arrows, Bedwin, and Undefeated, to create two colorways in the Stan Smith BBU. The original tennis style shoe will come in two versions– one with red leather accents, and the other with blue. Look out for them at Beauty & Youth United Arrows on May 1, 2010.
