adidas Originals Hamburg | Pre Order

Jan 28th 2014

There were two shoes that stood out last year when the adidas rumour mill started churning, but as the Stan Smith was liberated two weeks ago the spotlight is back on the eagerly awaited Hamburg. The Hamburg was always one of the more coveted sneakers from the brand's city series and since it's inception it's inception the silhouette has been painfully hard to acquire.

March 2014 marks the long overdue OG reissue but there's also a Stockholm guise in there for good measure. Both colourways utilise a premium pig skin and thankfully the iconic gum sole is in attendance too. The original colourway and the Stockholm inspired make-up will both be available on pre order from February the 1st. Stay tuned for a closer look as the release date edges closer.

Nemen Spring & Summer '14 Preview

Jan 23rd 2014

Nemen is undoubtedly one of our most exciting brands in recent times and one we're excited to introduce to our roster. Hailing from Italy, a nation renowned for it's manufacturing prowess, Nemen wear the Made In Italy badge with pride. It's exactly this history that Nemen take forward with them but going above and beyond that they seek to innovate too. Nemen is a concept rather than a brand but supporting their back-story is their unparalleled techniques.

Nemen actually source a lot of their fabrics from the same Italian suppliers as brands like CP Company and Stone Island. Although it's an entirely separate imprint we can certainly see links in terms of quality and craftsmanship. As well as the fabrics being of exceptional composition, it's the treatments and finishes that give the outerwear such distinction.

This season we're one of only a handful of UK stockists and you can find a selection of Nemen outerwear available for pre order now. Head over to the store to see each jacket in more detail as we await it's arrival in late January.

Nike Air Max 90 Ice

Jan 21st 2014

Nike never stop innovating but 2014 is shaping up to be a phenomneal year even by their standards. This year the brand is on a quest for 'Air Superiority' and following on from the Lunar 90 and the Jacquard 90 we're treated to their ICE design. Nike's Ice effect soles are not exactly new but they are a rarity. Usually only reserved for the likes of Air Jordans and their classic basketball silhouettes, it's never before seen on an Air Max 90.

Presenting three colours each with a different translucent midsole, Nike have offered up a striking reinvention of a shoe we thought we knew. The see-through hits allow the Air Max 90 to be seen in all it's glory, going above and beyond the little bubble we're accustomed to seeing. True to the Ice suffix in the shoe's name the upper is accented with jarring shapes in complimentary tones throughout. This is overlaid by slightly less translucent panelling giving the shoe a multi dimensional aesethetic.

More colourways are set for the Jacquard, Ice & the Lunar and we'll be sure to keep you posted with information as and when we receiv ie it. For now though why not head over to our Facebook & Instagram pages for more Nike QS sooner than you think.
