Halley Stevensons Factory

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!

New Balance x Hanon – Flying Club Samples

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.

hanon x Diadora B.Elite ’83 Final

It feels super weird not doing blog posts for the HANON collaborations after I’ve been sent the press release by them, instead, I’m part of creating the press release and site takeover which you can check here.

However, my colleague still makes sure he sends me the press release to my personal email, a little bit of nostalgia there.

Anyway, hanon x Diadora B.Elite ’83 Final – The Spirit of ’83, let’s get stuck into it!

2015 Highlights

First of all, a very Happy New Year to all who read my blog! I hope 2015 was a great year for you all, and I wish you and your families all the best for 2016!

Secondly, I haven’t had much of a chance to post regularly on my blog over the last couple of months, mainly due to the amount I’ve been working, but I wanted to do a post where I rounded up all of the highlights in 2015 for myself.
