Last week we hooked up with our friend Johanna Payton who runs a fantastic blog highlighting 60’s fashion. She took a pair of Fred Perry Phoenix from us and wrote an awesome article where she demonstrates the endless possibilities of mixing contemporary sneakers and vintage clothing. You can read the full article and check more pictures on her blog, which we truly recommend to everyone interested in vintage clothing and 60’s culture. Also, thanks to Eliott Swan for his photography skills!

It’s Wimbledon time! And as such, our mind are on classic white tennis shoes.
I don’t mean the high tech trainers that Andy Murray and co will be wearing
for the next fortnight, but the traditional plimsoll-styles more akin to our other
great British tennis hero, Fred Perry.
The all white monochromatic look has taken over this season and Wimbledon gives us a great
reason to rock this sports luxe style. This trend has us all loving some clean cut classics like
the Adidas Stan Smiths, Lacoste and Nike.
Here some of our favourite styles:
Adidas Racer Lite
Nike Air Max Thea Jacquard
Fred Perry Turner Heavy
Photographer Toufic Beyhum returns to Brixton to capture the footwear fans kicking
back at Friday prayers.
Just inside the entrance of Brixton masjid is an undiscovered sneakerhead’s paradise:
racks and racks of the latest adidas and Nikes where worshippers leave their shoes before
entering the sacred space. It’s here that photographer Toufic Beyhum has been
documenting footwear fans at Friday prayers for a year, in a series that debuted on Dazed.
Beyhum’s project caused a stir in the Muslim community – after the images found
their way around the mosque, he had people coming up to him saying how much
they loved them (the imam even declared himself a fan).
Named after a street in Fred Perry’s native Stockport, the Northgate is a boot built
from the essence of British winters past. Design takes root in military references, with a high-grip commando
sole based on the standard issue combat boots adopted by mods and skinheads in the 60s.
Diamond-stitched quilted canvas, horse hair-embossed leather panels and Harris tweed inverweave in tribute
to heritage ourdoor dressing, while long wing brogue detail gives a crafted, hand-tooled finish.
A boot for braving the elements.
