Patta and ASICS Releasing Gel-Mai Knit Collaboration

Dutch label Patta has a long-standing and successful partnership with ASICS. A union that spans far longer than many if not all other sneaker collaborations. It’s restored today with news that ASICS has offered up their ’90s trail runner, the Gel-Mai, for collaborative consumption.

Undergoing acute changes over the years since its inception, the ASICS Gel-Mai in modern form is enhanced with a knit upper married to a premium nubuck overlay. Where shading is concerned the look is appropriately autumn, oozing in rich brown hues that house the silo’s asymmetrical lacing system. Supported by a sock-like ankle collar in a contrasting rose shade, “Patta” marks the knitted heel while “ASICS” branding employs the tongue tab. This modernized Gel-Mai is fittingly punctuated by 3m reflective details throughout the shoe’s centermost point and quarter paneling.

Look for the Patta x ASICS Gel-Mai Knit at Patta Amsterdam and London locations on October 14 followed by an online release on October 16. A global release at ASICS retailers will trail both on November 4.

The Good Will Out and adidas Debut Ninja-Inspired CS1 Collaboration

German retailer The Good Will Out, the latest to join a very busy adidas Consortium world tour, today debuts what may be the best NMD CS1 collaboration of the year.

Driven by creative inspiration derived in Japan, and the region’s Shinobi ninja, the sneaker denotes a stealthy noir sentiment with three interlocking Primeknit patterns across the mid-cut upper. Heightening the theme is black color Boost cushioning, which appears slightly bolstered given the ridged outsole construction below.

Subtle touches of branding mark both the tongue tab and the heel tape that jointly reads “The Art of Seeing Through Darkness” and “The Good Will Out” in both English and Japanese. On September 16, the shoe will release exclusively at TGWO with a wider release at Consortium retailers the following week.

Grab a look at The Good Will Out x adidas NMD CS1 below and expect retail for the shoe to land at $ 220 USD.

Bedwin The Heartbreakers Collaboration with Regal for Warfield Cap Toe Chukka Bedwin & The Heartbreakers Collaboration with Regal for Warfield Cap Toe Chukka

Bedwin & The Heartbreakers (no, it’s not a band, it’s a Japanese label) collaborated with footwear manufacturer Regal in designing these cap toe chukka boots dubbed “Warfield”. Made out of genuine suede in black or beige and a crepe outsole, the boot is further defined by it’s intricate detailing such as the contrast white stitching, laces, and eyelets. Despite the hefty price tag for an arguably simple boot, the high quality of the shoe makes it worth every penny, and can be purchased now through the Think Silly store.

Grenson and Rag Bone Hob Nail Boot Collaboration Grenson and Rag & Bone Hob Nail Boot Collaboration

UK homies Grenson and Rag & Bone have collaborated to create this solid hob nail boot for the upcoming apocalypse – I mean – fall / winter months. These rugged leather work boots use a classic shape and nix all frilly detailing, but instead incorporate the outdated hob nail to the bottom of the shoe. Consequently, hob nails aren’t a regular request at Grenson’s Northampton factory, and they had to source them themselves, putting them on by hand. They will be available at select retailers closer to the autumn season.
