Little could be gleaned from the recent Hender Scheme x The North Face teaser, but it seemed likely that the ensuing partnership would yield weather-ready gear enlivened by Hender Scheme‘s playful design ethos. Indeed, the resulting designs surprisingly infuse Hender Scheme’s signature leather and sneaker silhouettes with a classic The North Face design cue: the insulating Nuptse puffer shape.

Comprising three separate shapes, the joint effort includes the Nuptse Peel Gore, Nuptse Down Moc and a revamped mountain boot. All are realized with black water-resistant leather uppers (shaped to resemble the Nuptse quilting) with contrasting white logos, without retreading territory explored by TNF’s own adventurous Nuptse footwear. Hender Scheme’s vegetable-tanned leather tags and chunky Vibram 186C Megagrip and 2146 Clean Trek soles further distinguish the rugged silhouettes.

All of the collaborative shoes and boots launch on Hender Scheme’s website and Goldwin’s web store on October 5.

Most recently, The North Face enlisted Junya Watanabe for a collaborative, print-emblazoned neck gaiter.
