Skechers is going for gold – literally – at the Olympic Games in London with its GOrun minimalist running shoe. Featuring mid-foot strike technology and a 4mm heel drop which brings the runner 66 precent closer to the ground than traditional athletic footwear, limited edition colorways of red, white and navy will hit stores in July and retail for $80. Team USA member Meb Keflezighi, who set a personal best at the marathon trials in Houston while wearing the ultra-lightweight sneaker, will compete in a custom pair at the Games this summer.
What do you get when you mix minimalism with a pinch of London ‘tude? The first capsule collection for Topshop by Adidas Originals. Classics are reimagined in bespoke prints and iconic silhouettes have been stripped back to basics for a fresh take on urban favorites like the Superstar, the Tech Super and the Attitude. Recreated in luxury leathers, splashed in Topshop’s London graphics and enhanced detailing in contrast threads, the shoes ring true against a fresh backdrop of soft corals, field green and gritty monochromes.
What do you get when you cross a classic workman’s boot with a graphic art designer known for creating eye-popping murals and shop interiors? A bright and brash collection that’s not for the faint of heart, that’s what. Cat Footwear commissioned French-born, London-based Camille Walala to apply her quirky prints to its classic Colorado style for Spring ’15, and the results are striking.
