FLY53 AW13 Footwear
British label FLY53 have released their debut collection of footwear in time for the AW13 season.
The line derives its inspiration from the label’s workerwear and streetwear heritage, with hidden detail and a focus on fabric offering something new to the market – shoes that look and feel the part, all at an affordable price point.
The collection’s biggest strength lies in the vast amount of styles available – from bold hi-tops to classic desert boots, there is something for every occasion and personal style.
A highlight of the range is the ‘Jilted’ model. Available in both hi- and low-top silhouettes, this trainer features a clean and minimal design that allows it to be dressed up or down effortlessly. This sense of versatility is emphasised by the timeless colour ways available: grey or navy suede uppers for the low-top and black, grey, navy and turquoise leather uppers for the hi-top.
The ‘Scarper’ design is also worthy of mention, especially for trend seekers or those who like their trainers to really pop. A throwback to classic 1990s silhouettes but updated via contemporary colours and on trend prints, the main body features panels of grey and red, which are wrapped around a camouflage print body. It comes complete with a white and red striped chunky sole.
This underlying 1990s influence is referenced once again by the ‘Ghostly’; a chunky, basketball-inspired hi-top that come in a striking orange, white and blue colour way. Perfect for fans of vintage/retro sneakers, the incorporation of orange will not only ensure you are on trend this season, but will also inject a sense of life into any casual look.
Overall, FLY53’s debut footwear collection offers a wealth of classic silhouettes that are updated for 2013. Nods to the 1990s give the shoes a vintage feel, whilst the variety in style and colour helps cater to all tastes and moods.
The collection is priced from £45 and available online at FLY53.com.
