Throughout the 1990’s, Timberland created a host of classics recognised by the world over. Featuring the brands distinguished styling, certain colour ways became notorious along with their incidental nick-names; Beef and Broccoli and Mac and Cheese to name but a few.
Offspring has taken this concept and given it a quintessentially British twist to mark the 20th Anniversary; Tea & Toast.
1996 saw an abundance of cafés on Neal Street and tea and toast was a popular staple within the stores at the time. The collaboration draws inspiration from this landmark year with the 6” Premium Boot, finished in tones alike to the classic snack. Featuring premium full-grain nubuck and leather, the boot is also finished with the Offspring landscape lining in blue to represent classic china.
Launching on 11.11.16 these limited edition boots are accompanied with a bespoke ‘Bread loaf’ printed box and Offspring 20th Anniversary tissue paper.
Combining the old with the new and the 2 most popular trainers, the Nike Air Force 1 and the Nike Flyknit a whole new world of comfort has been created.The Air Force 1 as popular as it is is a heavier sneaker compared to others so the weightless feel to the classic silhouette combined with its modern Fly knit technology is a huge success.
The Nike Sportswear team took their inspiration from long walks through Paris deciding they could make the shoe lighter, more flexible and reducing that dreaded crease along the toe vamp. By using injected unit rubber tooling instead of polyurethane tooling and micro-engineering each stitch they created the featherweight upper for “maximum comfort and minimal weight”.
Saucony Originals have teamed up with footwear giant Offspring to offer 2 fresh spins on the brand’s iconic Shadow 6000, taking their influence from classic colours from the Saucony archive and the streets of London’s Covent Garden. For the first time ever Saucony Originals have produced a fully unisex collaboration, with both colourways being available in both Men’s and Women’s sizes.
Inspired by the ‘We Run’ slogan found on the boxes of Saucony’s performance running shoes, the name ‘Running Since.. 96’ pays homage to the year Offspring launched their first store on Neal Street in Covent Garden, just yards from where they now share a space with the Saucony ‘Story of Running’ pop-up store.
Utilising pig skin suede, with a 3m reflective tongue the colours used in designing the two colourways take inspiration from the prevalent colours in Saucony’s rich archives – neon pink highlights the Saucony three dots logos and across the tongue detail whilst turquoise runs throughout both shoes, with the shoes’ grey base colour taking inspiration directly from the cobbled streets of Covent Garden which surround Neal Street.
Since 1991, the Shadow 6000 has been a favourite of the high-mileage runner who needs a running shoe with stability in the heel and extra flexibility and cushion in the forefoot. It has been such a success it still features in the Saucony 2014 performance line up.
The collaboration will be available from all Offspring stores nationwide from 10am on Saturday 5th of April, and Offspring.co.uk from 10am on Monday the 7th of April, 10am uk time
