Air Jordan 1 Phat – Black/White/Action Green Colorway

The Nike Air Jordan 1 Phat is back with a new colorway reminiscent of the first of two Air Jordan-inspired Dunk Low SB releases back in 2011, a black, white and action green design that’s a similar take on the Neon J-Pack design.  We personally like these better though…

Timberland Abington Fall/Winter 2012 Collection

The Timberland Abington Collection is inspired by a time when people were rugged and their clothes had to be as dependable as their work ethic was. Taking its moniker from Timberland’s original company name, the Abington Shoe Company, the offering contains premium leathers and shoemaking meant to endure the tests of time. The Six Inch Work Boot and the Work Oxford draw their influence from the turn-of-the-century New England mill worker who, when on his feet for hours upon hours, viewed his shoes as perhaps his most valuable tool.

The Low Guide Boot is inspired by the long overdue sporting lodge getaway, a place to unwind, recharge and connect with nature before returning to the daily grind of factory work. The Alpine Ox and the Hiker pull heavily from the shoes that were worn by guides while exploring and charting the vast Presidential range deep in the White Mountains of New England. All Abington footwear features premium full-grain Horween leather made in the United States or premium suede from C.F.Stead & Co. of England. [via]

FEIT Boots Spring 2012 – A Preview

FEIT grants a preview of their upcoming Spring 2012 collection, mainly composed of three new models.  All materials used in this collection are natural Italian vegetable leathers containing minimal dyes, chemicals and pigments, so the hide remains as close as possible to its natural state and is biodegradable. The leather breathes as it does in nature. It is non-irritant, soft to the touch, ages richly over time and has minimal impact to the planet.

Like all FEIT shoes, each style is built from start-to-finish by one master craftsman, who signs the shoe on completion.
