This release is seriously solid. Providing an interesting mix of classic and modern design seems to a theme running throughout this collection, with silhouettes such as the Ellington and the Strayhorn being stand out designs. All shoes ooze a certain subtly that can be a tough tight rope to walk for brands, but CLAE manages to executes it with ease on this collection. Some of the designs have elements of modern classics from the sneaker realm injected in to the DNA of CLAE’s clean design approach, which seems to work.
Sophisticated yet practical, CLAE have pulled off a very good collection of shoes here.
