ARC - The Outset - Tea Rooms
The second release from the guys at ARC Originals. Following on from their Volume 1 release they are geared up to release 'The Outset - Team Rooms'.
Taking inspiration from a top man in Charles Rennie Macintosh, the colour-way is inspired by the stained glass windows that was always a favourite feature of his architecture. The sneaker itself is composed of an all premium cow suede upper, combining sky blue and pastel green and complemented by a rose toe and plum accents. The sneaker comes with waxed laces in both sky blue and pastel green, and is finished with a gum rubber outsole.
Having had them arrive today i couldn't wait to try them on, first thing that i noticed was actually how comfortable the shoe itself was. Secondly, the attention to detail was second to none, away from the sneakers itself, the box compromised of a matching box sleeve, a matching air freshener, dust bag and even a hang tag that doubles up as a matching keyring. Really great touches and really nice to get these alongside your purchase. The materials also feel very premium and the quality control highly exceeds the standard you get with some of the 'mainstream' brand. Not a single glue mark, blush or piece of flat suede. On foot they look great, have a great shape and, something thats important to me, looks good from top down.
Finally, i have to tip my hat to the guys at ARC Originals for even having the guts to give something like this a go. I can only imagine how difficult it is to actually get a project like this up and running but they're not half doing a great job doing it.
ARC Originals ' The Outset - Tea Rooms ' will be available worldwide on 20th April 2018 10am GMT, on www.arcoriginals.com and will retail at £95.
