END. have gone behind the scenes at Grenson’s Northamptonshire factory to take a closer look at how the ‘The Triple Welt’ collection was developed by craftsmen at one of Britain’s most distinguished boot-makers. Designed to highlight a treasured piece of true artisanal British craftsmanship, these new iterations are constructed with a stepped triple-welted sole that makes the shoe look like it has three welts of different widths and are made entirely ‘from skin to box’.
Applying the Triple Welt to much loved Grenson classics; the Curt, Archie and Fred, the Grenson ‘Triple Welt’ collection launches exclusively at END. on 15th May.

The 2014 World Cup may be over but for many — including Clothsurgeon founder, Rav Matharu — the influence of The Beautiful Game is an everyday affair. It’s no surprise then, that Matharu’s latest collection for Clothsurgeon is a football-themed capsule that takes its inspiration from Brazilian football legend Garrincha, as well as Brazil’s world-famous beaches. Standout pieces include the Garrincha FC006 Sweatpants — which feature lightweight neoprene construction and a “close-up sand particle” print — the Nappa leather, neoprene and mesh Garrincha FC001 T-Shirt, and a pair of matching leather-and-mesh shorts, resulting in a line-up that’s a perfect representation of Clothsurgeon’s luxe sportswear aesthetic. Look for Clothsurgeon’s FC “Garrincha” new arrivals now at the HYPEBEAST Store.
