After announcing this collaborative project between PRESENT and Ellesse last week, we now take a look at the shoe itself ahead of it’s release tomorrow.
We were pretty excited to hear that these two brands would be working together when we first found out. It’s not often (if at all) that Britain’s finest Menswear store PRESENT go to work on a sneaker, a brogue yes, but rarely a sneaker, so you can understand our excitement when we heard that they had done so. Although a straight up traditional running silhouette, PRESENT have managed to bring a strong Menswear presence to this Ellesse Poli, covering it in luxurious brown suede and Harris Tweed. It’s chocolate tones allow the white midsole to shine bright and give the shoe a very British feel.
Launching in PRESENT tomorrow, this is a must for any Ellesse collector or aged sneaker head who is looking for something a little more classy.
NB: Please don’t wear these in the wet weather. No one likes haggard tweed.
