Present have been anounced as one of the “Fab Five” to collaborate with Ellesse, re-working the classic Poli running shoe. Here’s a short teaser video about the project.
Voted the UK’s best menswear store, it makes sense that Present have been selected as one of five stores in the world for the second round of Ellesse’s Fab Five project. Taking the Poli sneaker and attempting to ply their dandy style into it, this is a rather unique project for Present who are more often found re-working brogues rather than sneakers. We haven’t got any images of the shoe itself yet, but there are mentions of Harris Tweed as the main material of choice.
In this short promotional video, you get a brief window into the creative mind of the team behind Present and what they were thinking for this project. We’ve also got some nice behind-the-scene shots below that give an insight to the playful nature of those behind the store. More info on the shoe itself coming very soon.
