We here at Urban Industry have been lucky enough to be one of only a handful of UK stockists of the super-limited Gourmet x Black Scale 35 shoes. We have them available online HERE in strictly limited quantities. Dubbed the “Blvck Gourmet” and taking the form of Gourmet’s The 35 silhouette, the Gourmet x Black Scale design comes draped in cactus-effect black leather with contrasting white accents hitting the shoe’s technical outsole and subtle branding applications. Finished with black eyelets and matching laces.
The Gourmet 35 shoe is something of a modern classic in itself. In the past we’ve seen animal print and crocodile skin-effect iterations of this great shoe, and for Summer 2013 we have some fantastic new colourways including a fresh mint synthetic suede with reflective panels take as well as a custom yarn woven textile fabric and nappa leather upper option in silver.
We’re big fans of Gourmet footwear here at Urban Industry. They’re a breath of fresh of fresh air in an otherwise overcrowded footwear market. It’ll be interesting to see what direction the brand goes in now seeing as main-man Jon Buscemi recently left the brand to pursue his own interests, ranging from a chicken & biscuits stall to a new shoe brand called Greats. Black Scale are also another brand we’ve been quite impressed with over the years. The designs tend to be a bit darker and a little bit more sophisticated than your usual streetwear brands. We look forward to taking stock of this great brand for its Fall 2013 collection. Stay tuned for more updates as and when we get them.
