NEIGHBORHOOD x Grenson Charles Grain Brogue Boots

I've always been gravitated towards Shin Takizawa's personal style; a clean mix of heritage and rockabilly elements coupled with classic workwear sensibilities. He incorporates all of these into the NEIGHBORHOOD line every season, but usually they're overshadowed by more contemporary styles or military finery. For SS'17 he's teamed up with England's Grenson for a custom take on their 8 hole triple welt Brogue boot. Deviating details from the original are the oversized punch debossing, derby toe and half brogue rear panel and heel strap in contrast white suede. Often times, brands execute collaborations purely for marketing purposes, but these seem to stay genuine to Takizawa's affinity for authentic craftsmanship with quality. Easily worn formally or dressed down for casual occasions too, and at $800CAD, the price is quite reasonable given the luxe material makeup and meticulous detailing. Find them now in limited supply at HAVEN.
