Hanon and Diadora team up for Autumn ’16 and are proud to release the ‘Tuscan Racer’ – a collaborative edition of Diadora’s V.7000 running shoe and a favourite silhouette of ours from their ‘90 archive.
This summer we join forces with Italian sports brand Diadora and are proud to present the V7000 “Inter City” – a first V7000 release and a continuation of our “Saturday Special” theme.
This summer we join forces with New Balance to mark the return of the Epic TR.
Teaming up with four of their earliest partners, New Balance have invited hanon of Aberdeen, Sneakersnstuff of Stockholm, Firmament of Berlin, and 24 Kilates of Barcelona to present their take on the Epic TR. Constructed exclusively at the legendary Flimby factory in England, each pair stays true to the original make up with a hand crafted mix of premium materials.
A couple of weeks have passed since the fifteenth instalment of Crepe City, and as always the Crepe City team absolutely killed the event. This was my eighth Crepe City event and all eight have been located at the Truman Brewery which is just off Brick Lane in London’s Shoreditch.
For our latest project with Fred Perry, we also teamed up with textile manufacturer Halley Stevensons and utilised their P200 Super Dry fabric for the upper of the shoes, you can check out all the details here.
We were lucky enough to be able to visit the awesome Halley Stevensons factory in Dundee to shoot the shoes and the Fred Perry M12 polo shirt, as well as pretty much have free reign of the factory to explore. Shouts to Dorothy and the rest of the team for their hospitality!
This Spring we join forces with Fred Perry; quintessential English sports brand and creators of the iconic laurel wreath polo shirt. hanon is proud to launch a collaboration on their B2, a classic tennis shoe from the Fred Perry archive.
In August last year, for the first ever Sole Bloc sneaker festival in Glasgow, I was lucky enough to get my hands on some never before seen New Balance x Hanon samples for the NB Gallery display. So, before we get into this post, I suggest you take a look at the first post I wrote about the samples here, and then jump back to this one.
Since then, I’ve started working at Hanon, and the other week, Murray was lucky enough to get his hands on two pretty special samples, one of which was part of the “Flying Club” Pack, which was released back in 2008.
Obviously, knowing the excitable New Balance geek that I am, Murray was kind enough to let me borrow his now prized possessions, and along with some other samples as well as the two released pairs, I put them together and created this post.
