Arc Originals is a fledgling brand from Scotland that's deeply proud of its highland heritage. Their first sneaker captured the brand's hometown of Aberdeen and for their second, Arc set their sights on Glasgow. More specifically, the city's famous Charles Rennie Mackintosh-designed Willow Tea Rooms – an art nouveau marvel that opened in 1903.
Drawing inspiration from the tea rooms' stained glass, the palette favours through pastel pink, green and blue, with plum accents on the heel and tongue. A white midsole and gum outsole provide the perfect balance.
The release commemorates the 150th anniversary of the esteemed Scottish architect, designer and artist's birth.
Arc Originals' The Outset 'Tea Rooms' will release in limited numbers on April 20, exclusively through the Arc Originals webstore.
