Goodhood X R.Newbold AW11 Chuck Low’s (Preview)

Iconic London store Goodhood continue their ongoing and very popular R.Newbold collaboration’s, bringing us a fresh footwear style ready for Autumn and Winter.

Coming very soon from the R.Newbold x Goodhood AW11 collection, this Chuck Low style sneaker takes on the iconic style and reworks it with an interesting space themed print. This style and shape of sneaker has truly stood the test of time and is still an extremely popular silhouette for many. This exact rendition will be available in two colourways – the space themed print version we see above, and a plain black version.

What seals it for me though has to be the Winter-warmer found inside the shoe itself; the fur lining. Lined with fur for not only warmth purposes, but also to maximise comfort. Most would agree that a standard Chuck Taylor style shoe is not ideal for Winter, with strong winds and rain cutting through the canvas with ease. However, the addition of a fur lining makes this warm enough that you won’t have to discard your favourite style of Chuck when the weather truly takes a turn for the worse (but it still won’t be water proof).

The R.Newbold x Goodhood Chuck Low will be available very soon from Goodhood when the rest of the Goodhood x R. Newbold collection drops.

    respect to one of the stores doing their own line well – they’re producing bits that most full-on brands would dream of!

    and now footwear in the mix? they’ve stepped it up. Although it is a blank off-the-shelf silhouette and its their dads factory/farm/gallery bank rolling the whole thing – respect still.
