Aston Martin introduces a new line of limited edition luxury sneakers

Designer Shoes


When we think of Aston Martin, our minds are automatically drawn towards the finesse, quality craftsmanship and impeccable aesthetics delivered by it. Quite obviously, you too may imagine these in the form of luxury cars manufactured by the brand, but for now, we are refereeing to the marquee’s new line of luxury sneakers that are no less than its classy fleet of automobiles.


Quite recently, the luxury car maker joined hands with Hogan, another giant in its own field, for a creating a fabulous line of sneakers that is slated for an official release this fall. The collection will be an exclusive limited edition project that will be crafted with the same amount of care and high quality discretion that Aston Martin is synonymous for. Made from leather and nylon, these unique luxury shoes will be made available in four colors, ranging from the shades of beige, brown, grey and black.

Those who would rather prefer their sneakers to shout out Aston Martin a little more explicitly are in for quite a treat as well as, as the AM x Hogan sneakers also incorporate the iconic Aston Martin wings on a classic kestrel tan leather tongue – another feature that is also quite typical to the brand. Only 3000 pairs of these luxury sneakers will be made available to the buyers. So, if you have $545 to spare, investing them in a pair of the super-fabulous Aston Martin sneakers wouldn’t be a bad idea!

Adidas Loses Latest Round in Patent Suit Against Skeckers

Designer Shoes

Adidas has been handed an unfavorable ruling in the patent infringement lawsuit it filed against Skechers, alleging that its fellow footwear brandwillfully infringed two patents related to adidas' Springblade design – a four-year-old design whose midsole includes blades are meant to help propel runners forward – with its similar "Mega Flex" shoe.

In refusing to grant adidas’ request for a preliminary injunction this week, Judge Michael Simon of the U.S. District Court for the District of Oregon, a federal court in Portland, held that Skechers did not willfully infringe adidas’ patents with its own "Mega Blade" design and that it is not facing harm that gives rise to the need for such a remedy.

According to Judge Simon, "Adidas's evidence of irreparable injury is too conclusory and speculative," and the company "fails to make a persuasive showing that the Mega Blade shoe has had an appreciable adverse effect on the Springblade shoe.”

Additionally, Judge Simon “put the case on hold so the U.S. Patent and Trial Appeals Board ("PTAB")  could consider related issues,” per Reuters. Currently pending before the PTAB are two Inter Partes Review proceedings, in which Skechers is challenging the validity of patent claims of two existing adidas patents for the Springblade design based on existing patents and printed publications.

Asics Tiger Gel-Lyte III Ranru Pack

Designer Shoes

IMAGE: ASICS

No, your eyes aren’t playing tricks on you, this isn’t a pair of Adidas or Nike shoes (which is what I mostly wear these days when sneakers are concerned), but something new from Asics Tiger that will be launched worldwide sometime in mid-June. And why is it here, you ask? Well, for starters I’m a sucker for most anything denim, couple that with the fact that the technique used to piece the patchwork together is Japanese (again, who doesn’t love anything Japanese) and I’m 85% sold.

Paying homage to the traditional Japanese craft of boro that dates back to the 1800s rural Japan, craftsmen sew together scraps of leftover textile to form a distinct patchwork pattern that’s not only beautiful but extremely sturdy as well. And with the upcoming unisex Gel-Lyte III Ranru Pack, Asics does just that, with two pairs in different colours, one in Peacock and the other in Indigo Blue.

Finished with gum soles that set off the stitched denim beautifully (look closer and you’ll see the logo intertwined into the sneaker), they will be priced at SGD199 a pair and will be made available at STARTHREESIXTY and Limited Edt come 17 June 2017.

The best choice is always the classic one; take the Espadrilles in white with black toes. For this season, the house used calfskin leather; which is also ideal when the fall starts. The CC logo is also crafted elegantly on the top. These are timeless pair, made with durable leather, which is something that doesn’t come very often.

Adidas Originals by PORTER Capsule Collection

Designer Shoes

IMAGES: DSMS

Think of Porter (Yoshida, not International) and you’ll recall its signature black nylon bags with a pop of orange in the interior. Think of Adidas, and you’ll get… well, pretty much everything under the sun these days, with their NMD sneakers being all the rage of late. Which is why a collaboration between these two giants was inevitable as East meets West.

What can you expect from the collection you may ask? Where bags are concerned, you can expect 2 classics from Porter’s Tanker series that have been jazzed up with Adidas’s signature blue and 3 stripes. There’s the 2-Way Helmut Bag (SGD349), reminiscent of the ones used by air force pilots that’s also a Porter Yoshida signature silhouette.

Then there’s the street favourite 2-Way Waist Bag (SGD259) that comes with the Adidas logo attached next to Porter Yoshida’s standout rectangular logo. What’s more, the traditional orange interior gives way to Adidas’ signature blue, a nod to German sportswear giant that’s synonymous with the colour.

Besides bags, there’s also a pair of shoes, the NMD_C1 (SGD249), which is stamped with the Porter logo on the shoe’s tongue instead of Adidas. Coming in a black mesh upper with blue elements on the tabs around the sole, the shoe is equal parts sleek and chic, and looks great with a pair of rolled-up jeans.

Available at Dover Street Market Singapore’s online store from 10 June 2017, save this page on your bookmark tabs because should you miss out on this you’ll just have to pay way more over at #Carouhell and eBay. And we wouldn’t want that, would we?
