Pitti Uomo Footwear Preview: SKIVE S/S 12

Launched in 2009, London-based footwear brand SKIVE (created by veteran industry footwear designers Joachim Sedelmeier and Mark Walker) showcased a colorful collection of classic styles updated with edgy sole treatments and time-honored materials.   Top S/S 12 styles include striped beach chair canvas coastal espadrilles, 1946 upcycled sailcloth gum-soled sneakers, and wedge Oxfords — all inspired by English summer.  We loved the quirky red cricket ball leather stripe details on heel counters for a subtle pop of color. Suggested retails range from $150-$300 USD.  *No US distribution
