Nike Air Force 1 Winter Goretex

Nike take their latest Air Force 1 to the next level mixing technologically advanced construction with hints of the militaria.

The Gore-Tex dressed pair is yet another in the “The 10th” series, a line dedicated to the iconic Bill Bowerman and the heroics of his decorated military career. Cut to a high-top height, the pair evokes quite a bit of connection to the model’s duck boot tooling as hardened shells arm the toe box for winter weather, overlays of smooth leathers as well as ballistic nylons further proof the silhouette for harsher weather conditions. The off-white colourway comes contrast with icy blue soles and swooshes as well as bold “GORE-TEX” emblazoned right on the heel. The addition of the ‘zipper bootie’ adorned with toggles at the rear make for an easy on-and-off.

Pairs will be releasing via our online store on Friday the 1st of November from 12am AEDT.

Pairs will be available US8 through to US13 (including some half sizes) for $280AUD.

Until Friday we’ll leave you with all of the finer details after the jump…

Asics X Affix Works Gel-Kinsei Gore-Tex

Affix and Asics continue their partnership with the release of another GEL-Kinsei OG, this time around giving the technical runner and even more tactical aesthetic with added GORE-TEX.

Following the release of its “New Utility” offerings, Kiko Kostadinov, Taro Ray, Stephen Mann and Michael Kopelman of AFFIX have given the recently-revived classic a clean blue, brown and green-toned upper. By muting the colors, the utilitarian label gives the GEL-Kinsei a clean, industrial-indebted look that suits the shoe’s technical nature.

The sneaker comes equipped as standard with Impact Guidance System technology in the sole unit — which encourages a more natural foot movement as well as internal molded heel counters, a TRUSSTIC SYSTEM for reinforced stability and GEL technology in the front and rear sole unit components. New to the GEL-Kinsei is GORE-TEX, which has been used on the upper to provide weather-resistance.

Pairs will be releasing via our online store on Saturday the 2nd of November from 12am AEDT.

Pairs will be available US8 through to US13 (including some half sizes) for $320AUD.

Until Friday we’ll leave you with all of the finer details after the jump…

Nanamica FW18

Once again Up There is fortunate enough to have the fan favourite Japanese label ‘Nanamica’ grace our shop floor. Aiming to combine various casual, functional and fashionable elements, the Tokyo based brand certainly lives up to its own agenda, with a range destined to visually stun, but also ensure the upmost comfort and practicality for its wearer.

This season Nanamica has created a range of items which both challenges, and pays homage to, many traditional aesthetics, whilst consistently ensuring excellent craftsmanship throughout.

With traditional garments such as the ‘Alphadry Crew Jacket’ and ‘Alphadry Club Pants’ laying the foundation for Nanamica’s latest offering, the brand seeks to perfectly juxtapose the beautifully simplistic aesthetic offered through the more outlandish designs shown on pieces including — but not limited to — their ‘Vertical Stripe Pants’ and ‘OOAL Graphic Hood Parka.’

Nanamica FW18

However, the ever evolving brand would not be the renowned pillar of the fashion world that it is today without its constant desire to develop its garments beyond the expected. Enter the brands ‘Gore-Tex Soutien Collar Coat’ and ‘Gore-Tex Crusier Jacket,’ which in addition to being absolutely necessary items for any wardrobe, provide a completely impervious shield to rain, sleet and snow for its user, while allowing perspiration to pass through it from within.

Nanamica has perfectly positioned itself to be a critical wardrobe staple throughout these upcoming months, and certainly established itself as a range worth further exploring!

We are absolutely stoked to once again see Nanamica back in stock, and thrilled by their latest offerings!

Nanamica can both found online and in store at Level 1/15 McKillop Street.
