CLAE have set aside the light-hearted spring time hues for a minute and are getting dark and stormy – here we preview their new Noir collection. Monochrome is the order of the day, with blackness swamping the uppers of all sneaks in the pack, while white is served on the sole of most models. The collection includes the new waxed canvas low-top Carter silhouette, and fresh takes on the toe-capped Chamber, waxed full grain leather renditions of the Robinson mid and low-top runner Nathan. Folks who desire something a little dressier have the Hamilton boot and Powell wingtip to choose from too. The CLAE Noir collection is now available at www.clae.com and select boutiques worldwide.
