Junya Watanabe MAN x Tricker’s Suede Brouge

COMME des GARÇONS designer Junya Watanabe  has been collaborating with renowned UK master shoe-makers, Tricker’s. This combination between the two takes the ever classic wing tip brogue and mixes it up with some well thought out casual/sport styling. In my eyes this is genius, the number of times I’ve wanted to wear a shoe with the detailing and style of a brogue but not want the formality nor weight issue of a ‘proper’ shoe is actually quite a regular occurrence. The flexible sneaker style sole is more than a welcome remedy to such a problem.

This model comes in two tones of tan (see what I did there) and they are all handmade in England, with this though comes the extremely limited numbers, so be quick. One feature that I love, which I think will generally be overlooked, is the blood red calf leather lining – against the tan upper it seems to just pop.

Both are available now at End Clothing for £255 , be quick!
