As the only Certified Network retailer in Canada, we were pleased to have our shoe selected to release at the apex of our favourite season – Autumn.
Autumn is a time of change. Change is inevitable, powerful, and an important part of life. Over the years, Livestock has matured and developed through individual and team growth, moulding as we continue building something inspiring, and a launch pad for many things to come – starting with our Maple Leaf Ventilator.
Given the time of our collaborative release, and being the sole representative for the Certified Network up North, we took the opportunity to embrace the variety of rich colours from the Fall season. The transformation of bright red tones seen at the tail end of Summer, to the rich shades of the colour seen throughout Autumn, most notably, through the transformation of the iconic Canadian Maple leaf.
The shades seen on the upper of our Ventilator include a variety of red hues, mixed into a combination of premium materials.
A deep Burgundy Nubuck is used on the side panelling, heel, and eye stays. Candy red patent leather overlays the vented mesh quarter, while rich Crimson hues are applied to the suede toe box, vamp and front quarter. The pair is complimented with a stark white midsole while further detailing can be found on the heel of both shoes – in the form of a Livestock ‘Hexalite’ logo rendition. Finishing touches include custom Livestock insoles, ontop of a colour blocked rubber outsole.
This limited release will be dropping October 24, 2015 online accompanied with an in-store release at both Toronto locations – Spadina and Roncesvalles, and select Vancouver locations – Chinatown and West 4th.”
