From dominating colour palettes back in the summer of ’14, the trend of powdery pastels has held strong against the perils of changing tastes; despite its light and fluffy appearance. For S/S ’16 the sherbet shades are predicted to be back with a vengeance (in the best possible way) and we’ve got some amazing picks to take your look from dreary to dreamy in an instant.
With a blast of 90s nostalgia, the ridiculously cool Lazy Oaf x Kickers collaboration lands at schuh this week, and we are seriously excited about it.
Kickers were the trendy kids’ school shoe of choice, and this latest collaboration sees them given a fresh new update courtesy of Lazy Oaf’s bright and playful detailing.
The collection takes the iconic Kick Hi and gives it a distinctively Lazy Oaf look with one style in a multifaceted pink glitter, one with brogue detailing and detachable bow and tassel, and one with a towering multicoloured platform sole!
This is a limited edition run so we suggest you invest IMMEDIATELY: these bad boys are bound to be a roaring success!
About Lazy Oaf
Lazy Oaf is a London based fashion label designing bright, bold clothing and accessories for men and women. Their designs are notoriously colourful, cartoon-focused and with an element of weirdness! With a design philosophy based on referencing street wear and youth nostalgia, this collaboration with Kickers is the perfect match!
First launched in 1975 the Kick Hi became an instant icon. Designed as the perfect boot to be worn with denim, the classic style features a chunky sole and Kickers trademark contrast triple stitching.
The Kick Hi has always had a strong connection with music culture with regulars at the first Kickers store including Roger Daltry, Elton John and David Bowie.
From acid house ravers and the Madchester music scene in the 80s, to Brit Pop in the 90s and garage and grime in the noughties: music has embraced the Kick Hi and so have we.
In recent years the brand has collaborated with independent fashion designers, jewellery artists, illustrators and stylists as well as brands like LEGO to ensure the Kick Hi remains fresh.
Still the brand’s most popular style after almost 40 years, the Kick Hi is undoubtedly a true classic.
