Scotland’s first sneaker brand, Arc Originals, have unveiled the fourth iteration of The Outset sneaker. Keeping things close to home, the brand tap into Scottish folklore to bring you the ‘Blue Men of Minch’ colourway.
Inspired by the mythical Blue Men who are said to have occupied The Minch — a strait of water on the West Coast of Scotland — the sneaker makes use of premium provisions such as a pig skin upper with cow suede panels in contrasting shades of blue. A grey speckled midsole, which represents Scotland’s stormy coastline, anchors the design, while classy packaging adds an opulent air.
The Outset ‘Blue Men of Minch’ will retail for £99 (approximately $130 USD) and releases at 10AM GMT on February 9 via arcoriginals.com.
