Gourmet – Quattro Skate

By - March 22nd, 2011

Gourmet’s mature nod to the skateboarding fraternity was relatively well received last Fall in Black, White, and Blue colourways, so it is with little surpirse that the model gets a Spring/Summer 2011 release. The use of premium leather with a suede overlay has its pragmetic purposes in terms of increased durability, without detracting from the aesthetics of the shoe. Apart from this, however, there is little of the heavy padding and chunky, robust feel typically associated with a classic skate trainer. In contast, Gourmet have taken premium materials, a Jordan-esque silhouette, and subtle branding to produce a decidely more cultured skate model.
