Menswear label Publish Brand has partnered up with classic footwear brand CLAE for a collaborative shoe, titled “The Natural State.” The shoe takes upon CLAE’s Gregory SP silhouette with its perforated panels and woven nylon laces, and has co-branded insoles. It’s crafted from natural Italian vegetable-tanned leather in two-toned textures, with the front toe box and inner medial side featuring the reverse side of the leather. The casual low-top has a smooth beige colorway that is inspired by the desert landscape of California’s Joshua Tree National Park, and it also comes wrapped in a custom-made bandana that features Joshua Tree’s geological elevation on it. The collaboration is a purist approach to footwear with a clean design that celebrates natural raw materials. The Publish Brand x CLAE ”The Natural State” will be launched at a limited production run of 500 pairs, with each pair numbered on its packaging. Look out for its release April 30 at select global stockists as well as CLAE and Publish.
