perfect pieces for optimal performance on difficult terrain
The fashion world has been drawing inspiration from the most different universes such as sports, music, cinema, and even food — as we see in Travis Scott x Mc Donalds' latest collab. 🍟
Lately, brands have focused more and more on outdoor activities like trekking, climbing & hiking. Says who? Stüssy, Timberland, and countless other huge brands.
Just like there are different types of paths for every type of adventure, there’s an aesthetic for every one of them — either in the woods or in the city streets — but all of 'em have some important things in common: COMFORT AND RESISTANCE. That's why most of 'em are made out of leather or suede. These materials offer an amazing durability and abrasion resistance for when you turn on your Into the Wild mode.
Find below the proves that once and for all these are outdoorsy and SUSTAINABILITY TIMES.
