Crocs have been around for a while and were instantly dubbed the ugly shoe, but today they are the kings of comfort AND style.<br /> &nbsp; <div style="margin:0px; padding:0px; flex: 1;"><iframe allowtransparency="true" frameborder="0" height="520" src="https://assets.linklay.com/embed_cloud.html?uuid_hash=linklay609e19caa0a887.88760523&amp;base_url=https://www.linklay.com/app/" style="width: 100%; overflow:hidden; margin-top:-0px;" width="840"></iframe><script src="https://assets.linklay.com/responsive.js" onerror="javascript:var el = this.parentElement; el.innerHTML = ''; var imgEl = document.createElement( 'img' ); imgEl.src = 'https://images.linklay.com/linklay609e19caa0a887.88760523'; imgEl.style.width = '100%'; imgEl.style.maxWidth = '840px'; el.appendChild( imgEl );" ></script></div> They started off as the perfect shoe for wearing round the house or garden, much like a <a href="https://www.footasylum.com/collections/slides/womens-slides/">slider</a>, but now they are a fashion statement and can be paired with any outfit. Giving us ultimate laid back vibes, there&rsquo;s a Croc for every look. Available in a variety of pastels and brights, they will see us through the whole of spring and summer.<br /> <br /> <img alt="" src="http://www.footasylum.com/images/blog/FAW_WK16_Blog_Crocs-Image-2.jpg" /><br /> <br /> The practical elements of Crocs are also worth noting. The moulded footbed is what brings the comfort and support, the heel strap keeps the shoe secure and the holes keep your feet ventilated in the warmer months. They&rsquo;re ticking all the boxes, right?<br /> <br /> Our collection of <a href="https://www.footasylum.com/brands/crocs/">Crocs</a> is growing as they become more and more popular, so bag yours now and keep a look out for new designs.

Jerrys, Travis Scott and Supreme in the 21st Century, the Nike Dunk is a silhouette that fuses footwear with culture.<br /> <br /> <img alt="Original Nike Dunk High from 1985." src="http://www.footasylum.com/images/blog/FA_WK17_Nike_dunk_blog_2.jpg" /> <div style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-size:10px;"><em>Original Nike Dunk High from 1985. (Nike)</em></span></div> <br /> <br /> <span style="font-size:22px;"><strong>The Launch of an Icon</strong></span><br /> <br /> Designed by former Nike Creative Director, and designer of the Jordan 1, Peter Moore the Nike Dunk was seen as the next step after the Air Force 1 from 1982.<br /> <br /> Noticeably influenced by both the Jordan 1 and Nike Terminator the <a href="https://www.footasylum.com/the-lowdown/launch-nike-dunk/">Nike Dunk</a> was originally named the College Colour High however the shoe coincided with the 40th anniversary of the &ldquo;first&rdquo; slam dunk, which led to a last-minute name change.&nbsp;<br /> <br /> On release, Nike launched the &quot;Be True to Your School&quot; campaign which is one of the most memorable and iconic collections from the Swoosh. The Dunk was designed as a shoe for college basketball teams. Nike wanted to provide Division One college team players with colour-coordinated Dunks which fans could then buy to match.<br /> <br /> UNLV, Michigan, St. John&rsquo;s, Syracuse, Iowa and Kentucky (amongst others) all received their own &ldquo;Be True&rdquo; silhouettes. Throughout the late 80s, the Dunk became a favourite among college students and basketball players but as the sport became more popular focus shifted towards sneakers which showed technical innovation meaning the Dunk became outdated.<br /> <br /> However, this switch led to the transition from the courts to the skate parks for the Dunk. During the decade the Dunk saw subtle changes like the introduction of a nylon tongue to reduce weight, a shorter shaft and a thicker swoosh. These changes and the hard-wearing, thin sole saw the Dunk appeal to a whole new community.<br /> <br /> <img alt="" src="http://www.footasylum.com/images/blog/FA_WK17_Nike_dunk_blog_3.jpg" /> <div style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-size:10px;"><em>Original &#39;Be True to Your School&#39; print ad from 1985. (Nike)</em></span></div> <div><br /> <br /> <span style="font-size:22px;"><strong>From the Courts to the Skate Parks</strong></span><br /> <br /> The skate community quickly adopted Dunks as their go-to shoe. Dunks were spotted in skate videos and by the early 90s skating&#39;s most iconic figure including the Z-Boys and Mark Gonzales were repping Dunks. However, it took years for Nike to break into the skate scene.<br /> <br /> Although Nike Dunks and <a href="https://www.footasylum.com/brands/jordan/jordan-1/">Jordan 1s</a> had been worn by skaters for years the brand had struggled to break into the division.<br /> <br /> In 2001 General Manager of <a href="https://www.footasylum.com/nike-brand-page/">Nike</a> SB Sandy Bodecker was given the task of revamping Nike SB. Bodecker&rsquo;s solution was to make subtle changes to the silhouette sneakers already wore. He believed the Dunk should be reimagined with a version specifically for skaters.&nbsp;<br /> <br /> Skaters Reese Forbes, Gino Ianucci, Richard Mulder and Danny Supa were drafted in as the faces of Nike SB to help create the best silhouette for skateboarding. Padding was added to the insole to reduce impact, and the sole was swapped for a thicker rubber for better traction against grip tape. However, the most obvious change was the replacement of the Nylon tongue for the &#39;fat tongue&#39;.&nbsp;<br /> <br /> When the SB Dunk Low Pro launched in 2002 Reese Forbes, Gino Ianucci, Richard Mulder and Danny Supa were each given an exclusive colourway inspired by the original &quot;Be True&quot; series.<br /> <br /> Named the &quot;Colours By&quot; series each colourway was representative of its rider and was entirely intended for skaters.&nbsp;<br /> <br /> Nike SB continued to drop collaborative Dunks with both Zoo York and Chocolate and Supreme. The Supreme SB Dunks saw the culmination of Nike Dunk&#39;s infiltration into the skating world as the first-ever non-Jordan sneakers to feature elephant print.</div> <div style="text-align: center;"><br /> <img alt="" src="http://www.footasylum.com/images/blog/FA_WK17_Nike_dunk_blog_1.jpg" /><br /> <span style="font-size:10px;"><em>Original catalogue pages from Nike Basketball&#39;s 1985 footwear collection.&nbsp;(Nike)</em></span></div> <div><br /> <br /> <span style="font-size:22px;"><strong>The Rise of the Sneakerhead</strong></span><br /> <br /> Fourteen years after the first release, Nike decided to re-release the &#39;Be True to Your School&#39; pack in 1999. The re-releases saw a couple of new colourways drop, including the legendary &#39;Wu-Tang&#39; Dunk. Featuring the same colourways as the Iowa Dunk, this silhouette featured an embroidered &#39;Wu W&#39; on the heel. Just 36 pairs were created these were gifted to Wu-Tang Clan members and associates.&nbsp;<br /> <br /> For sneakerheads, their main focus was to collect the &#39;Be True&#39; pack however thanks to sneaker forums they became aware of regional exclusives like the CO.JP releases that were exclusive to Japan.<br /> <br /> The search for regional exclusives led to fans making trips across the globe to find rare and new Dunks.<br /> <br /> 2001 saw the first brand collaboration Dunk with St&uuml;ssy. The design was the product of Gimme Five (the company&rsquo;s European distributor at the time) founder Michael Kopelman, Simon Porter and Nike creative Fraser Cooke. The collaboration was sold exclusively at St&uuml;ssy&#39;s chapter stores and was available in three colourways, two highs and one low.&nbsp;<br /> <br /> Released over the process of two weeks, each store was instructed to sell 12 pairs per colourway per day which created unprecedented demand.<br /> <br /> A trio of Dunk High collaborations with Supreme kept the Dunk at the centre of the sneakerhead universe, however, a surge in interest in Jordan retros in the 00s meant that demand for Dunks fell.<br /> <br /> Over the next few years, notable models from the &ldquo;Brazil&rdquo; and &ldquo;Celtic&rdquo; Dunks to a trio of collaborative Dunk highs with Supreme helped the Dunk stay at the centre of sneakerhead culture. By the mid-2000s, with a renewed interest in Jordan retros, Dunks began to falter; despite &ldquo;Be True&rdquo; retros in 2003 and 2012, respectively, for the most part, consumers lost interest in the silhouette.&nbsp;<br /> <br /> <img alt="" src="http://www.footasylum.com/images/blog/FA_WK02_Nike-Dunk_Blog_Grey.jpg" /><br /> <br /> <span style="font-size:22px;"><strong>Collaborations</strong></span><br /> <br /> Despite the fall of mainline Dunks in the 00s, the Nike Dunk SB was causing riots (literally) with collaborations such as Jeff Staple&#39;s &#39;Pigeon&#39; SB Dunk Lows.<br /> <br /> From collaborations with Guns &#39;n Roses to the trio of &#39;Bear&#39; Dunks inspired by Goldilocks the Nike Dunk SB became gold dust.<br /> <br /> However, demand for SBs began to tail off by 2010 but the decline in interest was swiftly followed by a comeback from mainline Dunks.<br /> <br /> 2015 saw the re-release of the &#39;Be True to Your School Pack&#39;, and put Nike Dunk back on people&rsquo;s radar.<br /> <br /> In 2016 Comme des Gar&ccedil;ons Homme Plus put Dunk highs on the catwalk, with a black/teal/white colourway with a transparent PVC upper. Vintage was also making a comeback on the streets with an interest in vintage trainers taking off which led to the likes of Virgil Abloh and Kim Jones searching for the vintage silhouettes.&nbsp;<br /> <br /> In 2019 Abloh and Nike released the Off-White Dunk Low inspired by the &ldquo;Be True&rdquo; colourways.<br /> <br /> If there was one collaboration that has led to the increase in interest in Dunks we&#39;ve seen over the past year it&#39;s the &#39;Cactus Jack&#39; SB Dunk designed by rapper Travis Scott who has been spotted repping some of the rarest SB Dunks himself.&nbsp;<br /> <br /> Want to know when we drop the latest <a href="https://www.footasylum.com/brands/nike/nike-dunk/">Nike Dunk</a>?

History Files: New Balance https://www.footasylum.com/the-lowdown/history-files-new-balance/ https://www.footasylum.com/the-lowdown/history-files-new-balance/#comments Mon, 12 Apr 2021 00:00:00 GMT https://www.footasylum.com/the-lowdown/history-files-new-balance/ With roots going way back to 1906,<a href="https://www.footasylum.com/brands/new-balance/"> New Balance</a> has over 110 years of experience in creating next-level trainers that combine style with comfort.<br /> <br /> Starting as the New Balance Arch Support Company, the brand was founded by William J. Riley an English migrant living in Boston, Massachusetts. After being fascinated by the way the chickens in his garden balanced on their feet, Riley came up with an idea to create arch supports that had three support points.<br /> <br /> This also explains why you might find an illustration of a chicken on the lid of your New Balance shoe box.<br /> <br /> In 1927 Riley hired salesman Arthur Hall who went on to become a partner in 1934. Almost 28 years into the brand&#39;s journey and New Balance were yet to sell an actual trainer, instead, they focused on selling arch supports to workers who have to stand for long periods.<br /> <br /> It wasn&#39;t until Hall sold New Balance Arch Support Company to his daughter Eleanor and her husband Paul Kidd in 1956 that the production of New Balance <a href="https://www.footasylum.com/mens/mens-footwear/trainers/">trainers</a> began.<br /> <br /> New Balance arch support had become a must-have for budding athletes by 1960 and it was these athletes that inspired the first New Balance sneakers - the Trackster.<br /> <br /> <img alt="" src="http://www.footasylum.com/images/blog/FA_WK15_NB_HISTORY_BLOG_1.jpg" /><br /> <br /> Budding athletes had approached Eleanor and Paul asking for tailored sneakers. These requests led to the Trackster which was originally manufactured at home by the Kidds.<br /> <br /> The Trackster was the first running shoe with a rippled sole for traction and the trainer was offered in a range of widths to accommodate all athletes.&nbsp;<br /> <br /> Although the trainer was a success New Balance hadn&#39;t yet broken into the mainstream trainer market until it was purchased by the brand&rsquo;s current chairman, Jim Davis, on the day of the 1972 Boston Marathon.<br /> <br /> At the time, the Boston area had become the epicentre of the running trend that took over America in the 70s. At first, it was as seen as a phase but going for a run continued to grow in popularity into the late 80s. This gave New Balance the perfect audience and platform to release more trainers each year.<br /> <br /> Although they were now releasing more trainers, Jim Davis kept the company&rsquo;s tradition of individual fits by offering New Balance sneakers in a variety of widths.&nbsp;<br /> <br /> <img alt="" src="http://www.footasylum.com/images/blog/FA_WK15_NB_HISTORY_BLOG_2.jpg" /><br /> <br /> Rather than naming their trainers, New Balance used unique model numbers which indicated the type of shoe, the activity it was designed for and whether the trainer was built for stability, or speed.<br /> <br /> 1976 marked the beginning of New Balance&#39;s global breakthrough thanks to the New Balance 320. Featuring the famous &#39;N&#39; logo, the New Balance 320 was voted the number one running shoe on the market by Runner&rsquo;s World magazine and was described as &ldquo;the complete training shoe for beginning jogger and Olympic runner alike&rdquo;.<br /> <br /> Comprising of two layers of thick midsole Softee cushioning, a leather reinforced flocked nylon upper, moulded plastic counter for maximum cushioning and lateral stability and an Achilles tendon pad for added protection and support.<br /> <br /> By the 80s New Balance had expanded their offering with walking shoes and Gore-tex<a href="https://www.footasylum.com/mens/mens-clothing/jackets-coats/"> running jackets</a>, the 80s also saw the release of their most iconic trainer to date, the <a href="https://www.footasylum.com/men/mens-footwear/trainers/new-balance-ml574-trainer-grey-grey-white-4052797/">New Balance 574</a>.<br /> <br /> Released in 1988 and initially designed as a technical running shoe to offer improved comfort, the 574 took the tracks and streets by storm.&nbsp; With clean lines and eye-catching simplicity, the 574 is an instantly recognisable classic.&nbsp;<br /> <br /> <img alt="" src="http://www.footasylum.com/images/blog/FA_WK15_NB_HISTORY_BLOG_3.jpg" /><br /> <br /> From the 1990s, New Balance continued to become a household name on the tracks and the streets and campaign trails with the US President Bill Clinton sporting the New Balance 1500 on a run and the creation of the New Balance 990 &#39;Made in USA&#39; for Barack Obama in 2012 before his re-election campaign.<br /> <br /> Continuing to innovate running shoes, New Balance released Fresh Foam technology in 2014 - a newly generated shock-absorption system that provides wearers with a stable and high-performance shoe.&nbsp;<br /> <br /> Since 2020 New Balance has seen a resurgence on the streets, the New Balance 524 and <a href="https://www.footasylum.com/men/mens-footwear/trainers/new-balance-327-trainer-white-navy-4055739/">327</a> have become must-have trainers this season and are the perfect silhouettes to style all year round.<br /> <br /> Shop the full New Balance collection online today and discover <a href="https://www.footasylum.com/brands/new-balance/">New Balance Trainers</a> and <a href="https://www.footasylum.com/brands/new-balance/">New Balance Clothing</a>.

Far from being just another YouTuber, Jake&rsquo;s drive and ambition to instil the message that you don&rsquo;t have to let your surroundings define you, is what has helped get him to where he is today.<br /> <br /> <iframe allow="accelerometer; autoplay; clipboard-write; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture" allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="428" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/LU4IJt3oJEk" title="YouTube video player" width="650"></iframe><br /> Jake grew up in East London, where getting into gang related crime would have been the easy option, but that isn&rsquo;t the path he wanted to take. He has showcased his talents across his social platforms to try and encourage other youngsters to get into biking to keep themselves busy and safe. Off the back of his videos, he has co-founded huge meet ups and bike rides across London for fellow bike enthusiasts called Bike Life which has seen his popularity sky rocket.<br /> <br /> <img alt="" src="http://www.footasylum.com/images/blog/FA_WK09_NIKE_VAPORMAX_EVO_BLOG_3.jpg" /><br /> <br /> Quoted as once saying&rsquo; I quite literally want people to put their knives down and pick their bikes up&rsquo;, Jake truly is passionate about his message after someone close to him was a victim of knife crime. His passion and drive is exactly what <a href="https://www.footasylum.com/nike-brand-page/">Nike</a> is all about, so it&rsquo;s no wonder they&rsquo;ve snapped him up as a brand ambassador.<br /> <br /> <img alt="" src="http://www.footasylum.com/images/blog/FA_WK09_NIKE_VAPORMAX_EVO_BLOG_1.jpg" /><br /> <br /> Backing the launch of the <a href="https://www.footasylum.com/men/mens-footwear/trainers/nike-vapormax-evo-trainer-anthracite-tech-grey-4051655/">VaporMax Evo trainer</a>, be sure to check out the latest drop from Nike and bag yourself one of Jake&rsquo;s favourite silhouettes.

The adidas Stan Smith is a trainer we have all loved for over 50 years, and one that has never altered &ndash; until now.<br /> <br /> The famous shoe has undergone a 21st century makeover as part of adidas&rsquo;s promise to help end plastic waste and only use recycled polyester in their products by 2024. Pretty cool, right?<br /> <br /> <img alt="" src="http://www.footasylum.com/images/blog/FA_WK12_Stan_Smith_Sustainability_blog_1.jpg" /><br /> <br /> So what&rsquo;s changed? At a glance, not much. The <a href=" https://www.footasylum.com/men/mens-footwear/trainers/adidas-originals-stan-smith-sustainable-trainer-white-green-4053688/">Stan Smith</a> still looks the same, it&rsquo;s all about the way it&rsquo;s made. The Primegreen upper is now manufactured in high performance recycled vegan materials, while the sole is made from rubber waste.<br /> <br /> The look hasn&rsquo;t been altered, meaning you can still rock the Stan Smith with your favourite jeans or joggers for a causal day time or evening drinks look. The classic all white side panel makes the famous green accent pop.<br /> <br /> <img alt="" src="http://www.footasylum.com/images/blog/FA_WK12_Stan_Smith_Sustainability_blog_2.jpg" /><br /> <br /> Ultimately, the statement adidas want to put out their with this reinvention of a previously unedited shoe, is that style and sustainability are not mutually exclusive.

The History Files: Lacoste https://www.footasylum.com/the-lowdown/the-history-files-lacoste/ https://www.footasylum.com/the-lowdown/the-history-files-lacoste/#comments Thu, 11 Mar 2021 00:00:00 GMT https://www.footasylum.com/the-lowdown/the-history-files-lacoste/ Born in Paris in 1904, the brand&rsquo;s founder, Ren&eacute;&nbsp;<a href="https://www.footasylum.com/lacoste/">Lacoste</a>, would go on to become one of the biggest tennis superstars of all time, revolutionising the sport and the world of fashion along the way.<br /> <br /> <img alt="" src="http://www.footasylum.com/images/blog/Rene-Lacoste.jpg" /><br /> <br /> After being inspired on a visit to England with his dad, Ren&eacute; took up tennis at the age of 15. An entrepreneur even back then, at 16 he modified his tennis racket handle to improve its grip, and by his early 20s he&rsquo;d invented the very first piqu&eacute; (woven) polo shirt.<br /> <br /> <img alt="" src="http://www.footasylum.com/images/blog/Very-First-Lacoste-Polo-and-Shoes.jpg" /><br /> <br /> The instantly recognisable crocodile logo that we see today was also inspired by his time as a tennis pro. Legend has it, that Ren&eacute; bet a crocodile skin suitcase that he&rsquo;d beat Australia&rsquo;s top tennis player, James O. Anderson. Unfortunately, Anderson came out top on that occasion, but a journalist (who had heard about the bet) nicknamed Ren&eacute; &lsquo;Le Crocodile&rsquo; for fighting &ldquo;like a real crocodile&rdquo;. Although Mr Lacoste went home with a loss that day, a legacy was born.<br /> <br /> <img alt="" src="http://www.footasylum.com/images/blog/FA_WK10_Lacoste_blog_logo.jpg" /><br /> <br /> Four years later, the nickname had well and truly stuck. Ren&eacute;&rsquo;s good friend, Robert George, designed a blazer for him to wear at an upcoming tennis match, featuring the very first crocodile logo on the breast pocket. That crocodile would be embroidered on every piece of Lacoste clothing from then on and made Lacoste the first brand to display a visible logo on an article of clothing.<br /> <br /> Ren&eacute;&nbsp;began selling coloured shirts in the US in 1952, but they struggled to take off due to the higher price tag. As a last ditch attempt, Ren&eacute;&rsquo;s partner decided to pass some Lacoste shirts on to his good friends JFK and President Eisenhower and as they say, the rest is history.&nbsp; Once the shirts were spotted on the rich and famous, the public couldn&rsquo;t get enough and they were flying off the shelves. Fast forward to the late 70s, and the preppy look amongst American teens was beginning to take off, making the all white trainer, polo shirt and smart pants a look. <a href="https://www.footasylum.com/brands/lacoste/">Lacoste</a> was now a fashion giant.<br /> &nbsp;<br /> Originally famed for their polos, Lacoste is now a go to for everything from premium <a href="https://www.footasylum.com/brands/lacoste/?category_list_all=fm_sneakers&amp;page=1">all white trainers</a> to perfume and sunglasses to watches, they really have got it all boxed off.<br /> &nbsp; International Women's Day 2021: Female Content Creators https://www.footasylum.com/the-lowdown/-international-womens-day-2021-female-content-creators/ https://www.footasylum.com/the-lowdown/-international-womens-day-2021-female-content-creators/#comments Mon, 08 Mar 2021 00:00:00 GMT https://www.footasylum.com/the-lowdown/-international-womens-day-2021-female-content-creators/ While we believe in celebrating women every day, today is International Women&#39;s Day.
