Taiwanese retailers Invincible have come together with New Balance to collaborate on the MRL996IN 'Brogues'. Taking to the REVlite 996 silhouette, Invincible have brought over their signature brogue finish from previous collaborations, covering the upper in a tonal grey suede, highlighting the brogue's detailing by strategically placing 3M reflective underneath the punched holes. Adding accents of blue to the mix with a nubuck heel tab and embroidery, the MRL996IN features a series of finite details with embossed pebble suede tongue, and horse racing theme that runs through the inner soles. This all sits atop New Balance's signature ultra lightweight REVlite sole unit to complete the collaboration.

The MRL996IN will be releasing in store this Saturday the 23rd of May from 11am at our Level 1/15 McKillop street store. Remaining pairs will be released in our online store from 12pm the same day.

The raw denim dilemma

September 29th, 2011

With all the positives of raw denim, the feeling of perfectly worn in jeans and the authenticity of the wear marks. unique PERSONALITY!
But there is one downfall... The dreaded indigo bleed! From underwear to couches to socks nothing is safe from the loose indigo dye.

My main problem is finding the right shoes to wear with them, Stan Smiths are out. Well, pretty much anything light coloured is a no go unless you want them to turn blue too. I feel a leather derby or even an Oxford a bit too "up tight" to wear every day. Where a suede wingtip brogue has enough detailing, for it not to be too formal and could be worn every day.

These Deluxe brogues made by the Japanese shoe maker Regal is a magnificent example of style and quality. The red brick sole is a little heavier and harder than other brands. Making these brogues a lot more durable, the suede is considerably thicker too. To top things off this black pair is also bleed proof too.

Deluxe Buick brogues available in the Up There store
