In an ongoing collaborative effort between Fred Perry and George Cox, the dynamic duo have released their new collection, which are available now, and promises to follow it up with additional new colourways and variations early next year. The Laurel Wreath is a symbol recognized both in British streetwear culture as well as on a global scale. Established in Northampton, United Kingdom in 1906, George Cox has had a hand in British subculture movements and are known for their exceptional craftsmanship. The new collab is influenced by the most recognizable silhouettes the duo has to offer.
The shoe combines features from Fred Perry’s archive tennis shoe with details of the original George Cox monkey boot. The sports-style profile and leather construction of the tennis shoe make up the upper and are combined with the monkey boot’s heel tab and side-stitching. Further referencing the footwear of British subculture is a classic creeper-style rubber sole while dual branding is featured on the in-sock as a finishing touch.
