A lot of you have made requests for the rolled welt on our Hutton Playtime to be offered in a darker colour.You asked, we listened.Presenting the Playtime by Hutton with a twist, this time with a welt in dark brown: Some smart folks on social media have already noticed the colour difference in the pictures we've been sharing.While it may look a little grey in some pictures, we can assure you the colour is dark brown - but sometimes the overcast weather we've been getting has drowned out the warm tones of the brown.Why such a dark colour & not a lighter brown that matches the English Tobacco?We've seen a few people ask this, and the answer is simple, though...

The Playtime by Hutton, Tumbled: A Hyper Exclusive Sprint Run of the Hutton Playtime

Deadstock Acorn Sand Type 01 On Sale Now - Limited Numbers

In January 2016 we released our Acorn Sand Type 01 desert boot in super limited numbers. Made in Italy the way the desert boots used to be made, super high quality. We sold out in 24 hours. In September this year we ran a survey from our existing customers to see if they wanted a new pair of the original Acorn Sand colour. Based on the response we created the Deadstock Acorn Sand. Why deadstock? Well the Italian tannery that made this suede closed its doors some time ago. So this run is the last that can be made in this iconic colour. We already started shipping the pre ordered pairs but we have a few extras in some sizes...

We know we've been absent for some time. In fact, our last product launch was way back in March 2016, before Brexit caused the GBP to crash and burn.
