To follow up their collaboration back in Summer 2013, Hanon and Rebook put their creative visions to work once again. This time around, Hanon pay homage to their home city of Aberdeen.
Again taking inspiration from the Aberdeen coat of arms, as with the ‘Leopards’ from 2013, Hanon plays on the three castles which are depicted on the design. Both the castles and the leopards are symbols and historic, representing the times of Robert The Bruce. They also are associated with the city and utilised throughout on historic buildings and plaques. That’s a solid foundation of ideas to go on for a shoe collaboration.
Using Reebok’s Classic Leather once again, Hanon has based the colourway on the castles and the hills they were situated on. It’s a simple execution with grey pig suede and lawn green overlays. Finishing details such as the granite speckled heel collar and micro perforation are more examples of Hanon’s attention to detail. Additionally, Hanon’s fire logo appears on the left shoe’s heel and Reebok’s logo on the right. Both also feature on the red coloured tab on the tongue. Each pair comes complete with two sets of laces, once tonal and one white.
These will be releasing on Saturday 6 September at Hanon.
