Coloquy is a new sneaker brand coming out of Stockholm, Sweden, creating clean, minimalist, luxury designs. We take a look at their debut offering, the Tarmac sneaker.
Hand crafted in Portugal, the Tarmac is Coloquy’s first offering and currently their only one. A vintage shape given a modern luxury twist, the Tarmac is what Coloquy call a “Quarter Top” sneaker (slightly higher than a low top and slightly lower than a mid top) and is reminiscent of a Chukka style. Launching with 4 colourways, the Tarmac is currently a tonal affair, with natural colours drawing the focus to the premium materials.
This is a premium affair. The Tarmac is constructed from either suede or nubuck and features a smooth calf leather lining, with materials being sourced from Italy or Portugal. The outsole is made from natural rubber and the shoe itself features a metal shank – something normally found in dress shoe construction. To add those finishing touches, all purchases come with 2 sets of laces, a printed tote bag, and a notebook for owners to “document the memorable moments, thoughts, ideas and conversations we hope owners will encounter on their walkabouts”.
Currently, the only place to purchase Coloquy sneakers is via their website. However, the brand is looking to move into stockists soon and we expect that will include a couple in the UK.
