After making an appearance during Heron Preston’s Paris Fashion Week show earlier this year, the much-anticipated limited-edition Heron Preston x UGG collaboration will finally see the light of day next month. The collaboration merges UGG materials with Preston’s signature detailing, yielding updated versions of UGG’s Classic Mini and Tasman silhouettes.
Each shoe features three main touches from Preston: a yellow pull-tab, translucent rubber outsole and a small Heron Preston tag on the side. The designer also pulled from UGG’s past materials to land on a contrasting mix of mesh canvas and suede for both shoes.
The Classic Mini Urban Tech HP stays true to its name, offered in a classic neutral “Dune” colorway. Contrasting stitching outlines the shoe’s upper to create extra dimension. Preston’s iconic orange hue makes an appearance on the Tasman HP, offset by a white stripe between the upper and midsole. Both silhouettes also come in a standard black option.
The collaboration’s lookbook carries a “lost boys” theme, depicting the shoes and Preston’s own ready-to-wear collection in a Fall Hills, New Jersey estate, “before, during and after a celebration of freedom and friendship.”
The collaboration will be sold exclusively by UGG, both online and in-store beginning October 7. The Mini Urban Tech HP will retail for $450 USD, and the Tasman HP will retail for $400 USD.
