COMPLEX: CLAE Updates Two Signature Styles and Introduces a New Lightweight Shoe For Spring / Summer 2014
Thursday, February 27, 2014

CLAE has been making stylish and affordable shoes for some time now. This season, the brand further improves on its signature models with nice upgrades, while still maintaining friendly prices. The rugged Ellington gets a nice boost with the application of a Vibram sole. Black leather or cinnamon suede are versatile choices that can go with anything. The mid-top Russell is reconfigured with an angular outsole, giving it a new toe-box shape. And new this season is the Arthur, a low top court shoe constructed with EVA soles and neoprene highlights, making it one hell of a lightweight shoe. These styles are low-key, but if you’re looking for something more check out the Ellington Textile model. Lightning bolts and blue Hawaiian prints are just some of the color choices.
