On one hand, its design went with a fashionable approach. On the other, it kept inline with an utilitarian execution. The result, the new Creative Recreation Antonello. First previewed at last week’s PROJECT New York trade show, the Antonello features a ballistic nylon upper inter-meshed with supple tumbled leather. While there are obvious influences from mountaineering footwear, such as D-ring eyelets and padded ankle collar, the Antonello still retains a hint of running/lifestyle design like its articulated EVA sole. Part of Creative Recreation’s Fall 2012 Collection, expect the Antonello to drop right after summer.
