In this month’s episode of size? previews, we’ve taken a look at three new size? exclusive projects that include our signature colour palette added to the classic PUMA Suede, the eagerly anticipated Air Force 1 ‘Manchester’, and the fifth installment in our adidas Originals Anniversary City Series, ‘Stuttgart’. We’ve also taken a look at new to size? brand Dr Martens, and the various styles currently available including the 1460, 1461, and Church Monkey Boot.
size? x PUMA Suede
Following several exclusive running styles we’ve had the chance to work on this year, this month we’ve switched things up and had the opportunity to apply our recognisable black and orange colourway to the timeless Suede. We’ve taken quite a clean approach to this one, and branding placement on the heel harks back to our size? x PUMA States from 2006.
Adding to their extensive history dating back 60 years, Dr Martens have been rolling out some of the most exciting collaborations in recent years, teaming up with brands such as Neighbourhood, Supreme, A Bathing Ape, and many more. It’s still the classic styles that have resonated with subcultures after all of these years, so we’re excited to see what else the brand has to offer moving forward.
Nike Air Force 1 ‘Manchester’ – size? Exclusive
Finishing up a year of great Nike projects, we’re pleased to finally bring you an Nike Air Force 1 that will bring Manchester into the family of legendary regional exclusives from across the globe. There are several subtle details throughout that reference the city, including a hidden ‘0161’ tab on the tongue, ‘honeycomb’ style mesh throughout, debossed honeycomb on the heel and the ‘Manchester Bee’ icon embroidered into the heel.
size? adidas Originals Anniversary City Series ‘Stuttgart’
Coming close to the end of our Anniversary City Series project for 2020, the next chapter takes us to Stuttgart, twinned with the 2010 Cardiff. The first leather addition to the collection, the trio of black, red and yellow nods to Stuttgart’s city crest, as well as city resident Porsche’s classic shield logo.
