If you’ve seen JWT’s 10 trends for 2009 list, the very first thing is on people choosing quality. Reinventing the “utilitarian, militant, workwear, collegiate and athletic genres,” Canadian street label Ransom collaborates with Adidas Originals for this Fall/Winter 2009 run and releases a five-piece sneaker line proving the market prediction further–classic, well-crafted shoes with a bold streak of confidence making the way to your racks this November.
Riding on the new wave of simple, alternative shoe lines recently, this Ransom series takes its colors from the brand’s Northern heritage. Suede and leather dominate the surfaces–rugged, adventurous, sophisticated at the same time. Definitely made for the streets, for the nature trail even.
