That wayward bound to more technical construction, as seen in COMPASS show in NYC, isn’t just isolated to new design, footwear label 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.
