One of the new contenders in the sneaker game, android-homme-spring10-9″>Android Homme, had been winning fans and sneaker heads over despite the difficult and competitive nature of the market. The label which operates through an interesting perspective that human beings are essentially programmed beings like robots, has found its place in the industry with clean, pared down designs and sophisticated silhouettes. This season, the label is branching out and launching a new line of accessories purveying the same clean, understated aesthetics as seen in its sneakers. Alongside the new accessories line, Tron, the label is also dropping five new sneaker styles for spring.
The new silhouettes introduced in this release include both low-tops (Apollo and Craft Lo), hi-tops (Craft Hi) and the mocassin inspired Moc-1. The Craft Lo and Craft Hi are made from embossed leather for an interesting textural contrast when paired with the smooth leather toecap. Meanwhile, the Apollo is a colorblocked low-top also made from premium leather but features a perforated puffed ankle panel. The standout piece in the pack seems to be the Moc-1 which is a futuristic take on the traditional moccasin. The sneakers are crafted from a mix of perforated patent leather panel and suede. The tongue folds over the front and covers a part of the laces which straps through the ankle to create an wrap-around effect. The Moc-1 looks like a more technical and urban update of the traditional moccasin and will bring new life to your favorite selvedge denim.
In terms of accessories, the Tron line-up includes a weekender, a duffle (a smaller counterpart to the weekender), coin pouch and cell phone holder. The accessories are offered in an easy-wearing sleek black and designed with simplicity and sophistication in mind featuring premium materials such as patent and pebbled leather then paired with microfiber suede and leather lining. Ultra-versatile and easy to work into any wardrobe, these limited edition accessories are designed to be worn with Android Homme footwear.
