AGENDA LBC: AXS Folk Technology x CLAE 2014 Spring/Summer Mills Runner

For a footwear brand like CLAE, the majority of its designs thus far have existed within the often vague realm of “casual footwear.” A sphere within which they have existed quite well. And while the Los Angeles-based brand has certainly created a name for itself by experimenting beyond its initial silhouette offerings over the years, one of the latest models to extend its brand territory has been the running silhouette, Mills. Recognizing the functional similarities of the model with its own ethos, newcomer brand AXS Folk Technology aligns a collaborative footwear offering with CLAE for Spring/Summer 2014.
The pair arrives in a rough hairy suede upper that plays a main role on the toe box and tongue, while tonal leather and suede hits are seen along the side panels and rear heel. One of the most notable design elements is the hand dyed indigo panels that are seen along the puffed ankle section and upper toe box. A cork midsole, dark navy laces and tan metal eyelets finish off the subdued color palette. Look for these to hit select CLAE stockists as spring/summer of next year nears.

Shoemaker Mr. Hare and Stussy Tribe OG Member Alex Turnbull Talk About the Importance of Heritage and Counterculture

British shoemaker Marc Hare prides himself in the craftsmanship of quality Italian-made shoes under his eponymous label Mr. Hare.

Here, Hare sits down with friend and influencer Alex Turnbull — skater and original Stussy Tribe member– as they share with us their own work ethics and what makes them tick.

Everlane Presents a Look Into Their Chinese Factories

Stateside manufacturing may be a source of pride for most brands, but it’s not often that we’re offered a glimpse into the murky world of overseas production. In what we hope becomes more of a trend, online retailer Everlane is providing a measure of transparency with a series of factory visits, the first of which kicks off in China. The world’s most populous nation has been leading the way in manufacturing — from furniture, to shoes, electronics and clothing — yet few of us, if any, have ever seen the inside of a Chinese factory. Traveling with a team of four — including founder, Michael — Everlane visits each of its Chinese production facilities in this latest feature, delving into the manufacturing processes, history and working lives of its overseas partners. Check Everlane Explores for a full breakdown of the visuals.
