Armistice SS13 Footwear Collection
Founded only twelve months ago, shoe brand Armistice have made great progress within their first year of business, seeing their footwear collections picked up by retailers such as Schuh and Urban Outfitters.
A natural progression from the brand’s well received debut collection in 2012, the SS13 range sees the French label put their own unique spin on summer-appropriate boat shoes, desert boots and espadrilles.
One recognisable feature that runs throughout the collection is the white rubber sole. Not only does the contrast sole provide a casual street style touch, it is designed to ensure supreme comfort for its wearer – meaning shoes can be worn bare foot on a hot summer’s day with little or no irritation. Moreover, the robe laces and clean-cut canvas uppers combine to create a minimalist aesthetic that will blend in seamlessly with your existing summer outfits.
Although the label have clearly taken a simplistic approach to the design of the collection, subtle features such as fringing, short tassels on desert boots and Aztec-inspired prints nod towards Native Indian influences.
The highlight of the collection is undoubtedly the ‘Oslo One’ canvas shoe, which resembles a chukka boot silhouette. Through the use of lightweight, seasonally-appropriate canvas, rather that traditional suede, this contemporary take on a classic style is perfect for extended and comfortable wear through high summer and whilst holidaying.
Overall, the SS13 collection by Armistice will integrate into any summer wardrobe with ease. Worn with a pair of tailored shorts/chinos, a basic t-shirt and in-vogue rounded sunglasses, the seven piece footwear range will offer a firm grounding to any seasonal look.
