Classic styles get the Royal Elastics treatment.

January 22nd, 2013

Since being established in 1996 by two Australian teens, Los Angeles-based Royal Elastics has gone through an aquisition (by K Swiss in 2001) and dissolution (sold to the investment group REH in 2009) and now, after losing its way for a couple seasons, has finally rebounded. While still creating an array of athletic-inspired styles featuring the elastic-based closures it’s known for, the brand – which offers men’s, women’s and kids’ styles – is now putting its own spin on old school favorites like desert boots, oxfords and creepers.
