Just Dropped SS17 Footwear
April 11 2017
The sun's just starting to break out through the clouds so what better excuse to update your wardrobe than with box fresh footwear? In the world of men’s fashion, this year is all about texture. From low profile simplicity to sports luxe detailing, we've got the kicks to pair with your favourite look, every day of the week.
We have been flying the Italian footwear flag for years and 2017 is no exception with one of our favourite brands Ylati taking precedence on the shop floor. Ylati's passion for quality and forward thinking design are the foundations of the brand – this matches the unparalleled finish of their outstanding footwear range. The Amalfi Low is our favourite, boasting touch-soft perforated nubuck and leather uppers. This simple silhouette takes you seamlessly from day to night, pairing well with your favourite jeans or tailored trousers for a casual look.
At Ricci, we are proud to champion historic brands like Cruyff Classics. Dubbed the “originator of fútbol lux”, the brand is the brainchild of football legend Johan Cruyff and Italian designer Emilio Lazzarini. The Netherlands born footballer was reaching the height of his career in Barcelona in 1979, when he began to write the blueprint for a range of footwear to challenge the practical and luxury qualities of those already on the market. Fast forward to now and Cruyff Classics is one of our bestselling ranges, with models Traxx, Vanenburg and Rapid all popular with those who prefer a sportier, streetwear aesthetic. A luxurious mix of textures like mesh, neoprene, textile, leather and suede makes this range of footwear stand out from the crowd.
Offering premium sportswear with a relaxed, casual focus since 2003, Hugo Boss Green is renowned for its modern and stylish sports inspired edge. Their footwear range is an all time staff favourite at Ricci with simple, no-nonsense lines and high quality leather. Inject colour with low-profile models Parkour Runn, Metro Tenn and Lighter Low to update your wardrobe favourites.
Hot out of Los Angeles is premium sneaker brand Android Homme. Founded in 2008 by creative director Javier Laval, Android Homme injects luxury to everyday wear. Taking influences from the streets, music and graffiti, it focuses on adding a distinctive edge to the range by adding unexpected material combinations, heavy suede panels and a diverse selection of shapes. Our favourite style Propulsion is available in five colourways (all black with variations) and is guaranteed to set you apart from the norm. No Easter break is complete without packing a pair of Armani pool slides in your suitcase. The comfort of a footbed slide paired with the oversized iconic Armani logo is a winning combination for any holiday attire. From pool side in the day to hitting town at night, Armani continue to reign as footwear pros offering an outstanding choice of SS17 trainers featuring mesh uppers and clean, comfortable leather lace ups fit for any occasion.
