First seen in the preview of the Men’s Fall Winter 2015 campaign, Loewe presents its latest classic, the Loewe sneaker, newly designed by Jonathan Anderson.
“I wanted the first Loewe sneaker to be young, easy and fun, but also for it to have a collectible edge”, saysAnderson.
Combining the shape of a bowling shoe with characteristic sneaker elements, the new style is available for men in multiple color and material combinations, including the house’s signature Oro suede and a variation in navy and black calf leather. For Spring, Loewe is also issuing the new sneaker in calf printed with the space-travel inspired ‘Galaxy’ motif employed across the season’s ready-to-wear collection for men. A dozen options make up the complete collection, entirely in stores by January 2016.
Loewe’s usual elevated manufacturing standards are evident in details such a honey rubber sole that is stitched to the shoe, flexible extra-soft insoles, hand-painted edges, and perforated side panels. The design’s clean lines highlight the superior craftsmanship that sets the Loewe sneaker apart and make it an instant classic.
A key addition to the brand’s offering, Loewe’s new footwear option fuses the house’s expertise in leather craft with vibrant energy and sharp aesthetics, producing an essential new item for everyday life – fundamental, functional and fully of our time.
