Stussy Deluxe x Dr. Martens | The Hambleton

I hate doing these kind of word for word reposts but Hypebeast knows best and it makes no sense for me to regurgitate information that I don't even know. What I do know is I am stoked on these shoes.

"After a very successful partnership with the Chukka boot, Dr Martens and Stussy Deluxe continue their collaborative partnership with a canvas shoe for Spring/Summer 2010, The Hambleton. Both brands have deep roots in street culture and command respect for their independent, grassroots heritage. Embracing the craftsmanship of Dr. Martens and the laid-back aesthetic of Stussy and California, this fusion has produced what is sure to become an iconic canvas shoe.

The Hambleton is inspired by sport shoes that have so long been the uniform for the youth of California and the famous European summer lightweight shoe, the espadrille a two eye moccasin toe footwear style that is sure to be a staple for the Spring. From a styling perspective, the Hambleton has a clean and sleek look with its bound apron and collar. The Hambleton will carry a Stussy Deluxe woven logo on the tongue and the classic SS Stussy logo is embossed on the rear heel counter. Each style will be tastefully finished with the traditional Dr. Martens woven loop in tonal colors to match the use of canvas.

The product has been built upon a new EVA wedge sole and a strip of Stussy’s signature purple runs along the top of the sidewall as a feature to offer a truly refreshing take on this product.

The Dr Martens x Stussy Deluxe Hambleton is available in three color ways – Navy, Black, and Ecru with two options of laces, tonal or white.

The collection will be available at select Dr Martens retailers and Stussy chapter stores worldwide on March 2010."
