That wayward bound to more technical construction, as seen in http://compassshow.com” target=”_blank”>COMPASS show in NYC, isn’t just isolated to new design, footwear label http://gourmetinyourface.com” target=”_blank”>Gourmet found new application on some of its classic models. On appearance, its easy to dismiss the Gourmet Uno Leather as another canvas sneaker with woodland camouflage motif. A double take was in need to reveal it was not in canvas but suede. A third take (and correction) to finally affirm it to be a leather upper, specially treated to give it tactile feel of suede. This particular Gourmet Uno Leather truly lived up to the official moniker of camouflage as a “disruptive pattern material”. Part of the Gourmet collection for Fall/Winter 2011.
