Scottish sneaker retailer HANON has reunited with Padmore & Barnes, following on from their most recent collaboration at the start of the year. The new capsule focuses on the Higgins silhouette, one of Padmore & Barnes' lesser-known styles that made its debut back in 1978.
HANON has reworked the Higgins into two colorways, with "Sunflower" yellow or beige hitting the Italian velour suede uppers. Other features include a unique hand-stitched moccasin style detailing around the vamp and heel and a debossed HANON flame logo on the rear of the shoe.
The beige colorway also features a crepe sole unit complete with shodow-sprayed edges and a natural underside, while the "Sunflower" design is finished with a black plastic sole unit. Each colorway is limited to just 48 pairs.
The HANON x Padmore & Barnes Higgins capsule is available now from the HANON web store.
