Located in Aberdeen, Scotland, Hanon Shop carries some of the most innovative independent brands on the market, as well as selected product from some of the majors. Beyond that, the store also works to produce collaborative product that is equally innovative to that which stocks the store and website. Their latest has them working again with New Balance on “The Flying Club.”
Based on two of the most famed RAF aircraft, the Tornado and the Spitfire, “The Flying Club,” also brings a third party to the table, Ventile Fabric. A hearty all-weather cotton, Ventile pushes the theme, and keys on the history capture in the design. Just as their are two planes referenced, their are two shoes in the collection.
I had the opportunity to speak with Hanon’s Edward Toft about the sneakers. He shared background on both the design and his memories of New Balance. With the official release coming up this Saturday, September 6th, it seemed like perfect timing.
