Play Cloths presents a new and effortless take on men’s luxury footwear. More than a year in the works and hand crafted in Northern Portugal, the ‘77 Mid Sneaker and Goldie Loafer follow a natural evolution for the brand as both shoes will be the first of ‘Play Cloths only’ footwear.
The silhouette of the ‘77 Mid Sneaker is the brand’s interpretation of a luxury basketball sneaker. The design includes a full grain Italian leather upper with an extended padded leather tongue as well as an embossed applique leather label. The Play Cloths signature star pattern is the main design feature of the ’77 Mid. Meticulously-intricate in detail, each star was hand-lazered against double leather backing. The laces are contained within the Ghillie hidden lace system. Deep leather quilting lies on the back heel & ankle while a foil-stamped foot bed rests on the inside of the sneaker.
A direct contrast to the ‘77 Mid Sneaker, the Goldie Loafer is a hard-bottomed slip on dress shoe. The primary objective was to create a great shoe that was not only unexpected but also pushed the boundaries of expectations from the brand. The Goldie Loafer also features the hand-lazered stars along the front body while deep leather quilting rests on the back heel and ankle of the shoe.
The perfect marriage of high fashion and function, both shoes represent the best of the Play Cloths brand ethos – high quality construction with design influenced by the juxtaposition of luxury esthetics and street culture.
The ‘77 Mid Sneaker and Goldie Loafer pairs are extremely limited and will retail for $265 and sold exclusively on the Play Cloths online store today!
