Heading into the depths of summer, our latest Sneaker Rotation features the selection of London-based photographer Mark Whitfield. As the lineup shows, Whitfield is an unabashed Nike Air Force 1 fan who only swaps out his allegiance to the silhouette on Sundays when he opts for a pair of Converse.
Along the top row, the photographer wears the “Year of the Dog” – a pair he had outfitted by Mercer 21 with Harris Tweed purchased from the Isle of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides featuring hits of his signature N7 touches in orange – and “Beauty and the Beast” bespokes which are constructed from dark blue vipera, featuring the appearance of dragon scales and Liberty of London material. Along the bottom row, Whitfield goes for a pair done in collaboration with Dover Street Market, Canvas “Crayons” from 1995 and a sample pair of GORE-TEX Digi-Camo sneakers from the “1World” series. Lazing around the apartment on Sunday, Whitfield dons a pair of Converse Pro Leather Mids, created in collaboration with Concepts for St. Patrick’s Day. Only 50 pairs were for sale and their aran wool construction lends themselves perfectly to leisurely end-of-week pursuits.
