We're typically on the Streetwear & Denim side of the forum, but since there's such a great community of shoe aficionados here in Classic Menswear, I wanted to quickly show you our latest project. Last year, we worked with Italy's Ilcea Concercia to offer a range of sneakers and boots in genuine Radica museum calf. The results were really stunning.. and the resulting trainers looked like nothing else on the market. We just launched our 2nd round of pre-orders today (5/30) and the preorders are open until June 13th. You can choose from five styles and four colors.. and we ask for a $110 deposit up front. The full price is $245 to $285 for the sneakers and $335 for the side-zip Combat Boots. You have to dig the styling, but quality-wise, we're not only making the best sneakers for the money, but really the best sneakers period. Each pair is made in Portugal with Italian or German sole units, kidskin liners, and poron cushioned insoles. My factory is second to none, we created our own lasts that scale in US whole and half sizes, and the finish on this Museum Calf is absolutely bonkers. Matching belts are also available for an additional $98.
You can check out the project and see a ton of images here
I'll follow this thread, so feel free to ask me any questions on sizing, styling, or whatnot.
