Pointing the way to the most important products, people, stories and shows in fashion right now.
Known for its elasticated closures, side panels or laces (quelle surprise), Royal Elastics has expanded its range beyond sneakers for spring 13 to include more trend-led lines. Wedge soles with a sporty trainer vibe combine with clean and crisp boot and shoe uppers (brogues, Derbys, Oxfords and the like) in leather. These offer a modern alternative to the usual Vibram/ cleated heritage versions of the trend. What’s more, this is no boys’ club, as women and, rather excitingly, kids can get in on the act too.
