Once again Hanon has done a great job of applying rare luxury and technical materials to a customized upper with classic style and old school details.

Features include:
– classic single-piece “N” in a 70’s/80’s style (gold/yellow as to be expected from hanon!)
– superior Wolverine leathers
– sueded pigskins
– vintage bound & unbagged mesh tongue
– Ventile smart fabric application
– 100% cotton old school laces
– aged EVA midsole unit
– custom propeller plane tongue label
– original polyurethane collar lining

Ventile is a British-made, densely-woven, 100% cotton, all-weather, breathable fabric. It was made popular in WWII by its application to flying suits worn by pilots who were required to bail into the ocean. Ventile is still used by tornado pilots with the RAF and NATO, as well as by Antarctic explorers and climbers of Mt. Everest.

Solebox drops a new 670

Thursday, August 16th, 2007

The M670UKRB has hit the shelves at Solebox. This Made in England classic has a suede heel and toe, smooth leather midfoot and patent leather at the top. Red inserts pull it all together. Impressive? Maybe, but not the strongest showing.

Mita has released a CM670V in collaboration with Japanese fashion label, Victim. See it here along with an interview (Japanese language only).
