Thursday, January 17, 2013

Growing alongside the digital sneaker community shoemaker CLAE has blossomed into an industry standard for blending sophisticated styling with athletic footwear. Now entering its twelfth year, the Californian brand presents its Early Spring 2013 Collection complete with both old and new silhouettes. As well as reinterpreting classics like the Ellington, Strayhorn, Powell and Hamilton with unique fabrics, CLAE also introduces a hand full of new models that include: the moc-toed Desmond with sporty Vibram outsole; a minimal low top dubbed the Marlin; a refined runner with a cork wrapped midsole labeled the Mills; and The Nicholson, a polished, work boot-inspired low top on a classic Cristy Vibram outsole. Each item from the Early Spring Collection is available now through CLAE’s re-designed webstore. - Hypebeast
