Everyone’s going unisex, and the rest of this week’s Shoes News

Before we get on to the news, you may have noticed I’ve given the blog a little revamp! I hope you like the new look. I think it’s very me!

Marni x Zalando

Clockwise from top: Vans, £109.99; Timberland, £209.99; Reebok, £114.99; Dr Martens, £164.99. All Marni x Zalando, zalando.co.uk

I first saw this collection months ago but I was sworn to secrecy, so I’m really excited to finally be able to talk about it! I’ve been quite obsessed with Zalando recently (have you seen its GREAT adidas Originals edit?) but this is the cherry on the cake. The website has teamed up with one of my favourite ever brands, Marni, to create a capsule collection of 12 styles with four other brands: Dr Martens, Reebok, Timberland and, my personal favourite, Vans. The collection is unisex (YAY!) and comes in really cool shades of putty and olive, with trademark Marni details such as kilties (the fringed bit of leather on the toe) and sporty elastic trims. On sale from today!

New Scandi discovery – Eytys

Clockwise from top: ‘Mother’, 110; ‘Doja’, 190; ‘Ace’, 250; ‘Kibo’, 230 – all prices in Euros, eytys.com

I can’t believe I didn’t already know about Eytys pronounced ‘Eighties’) but since two completely unrelated people told me to check the brand out last week, it seems only right that I share my newfound discovery with you. Based in Sweden, the idea for Eytys was born from a love of classic canvas deck shoes…but they have a twist with a slightly stacked sole and modern shades and textures. Their first ever, and key style is Mother; a really simple minimal lace-up. Oh, and they come with gum soles! And you all know how I feel about that. They’re stocked at various places in the UK including net-a-porter.com but you’ll find their biggest selection on their own website, and they do ship to the UK. Like the Marni x Zalando collection, Eytys are completely unisex, which I thoroughly approve of.

Dukes X En Brogue: UPDATE


So my Dukes collaboration boots went on sale on Tuesday and they’ve pretty much sold out already! Which is amazing! But the point of me writing about it isn’t to blow my own trumpet; it’s to let you know that more are on the way and you can pre-order on the website. It’s still a very limited run, but we had such an amazing response we had to get more! Thank you SO MUCH anyone out there who bought a pair. I am so chuffed you loved them as much as me.
