From the ground up

Clae footwear has relaunched. OGs know this brand as being the FIRST boutique “athleisure” footwear brand. They went on hiatus for a few years but are back with a full collection in stores this coming Fall, and a capsule collection in very select stores right now. New shipment just arrived at Everything Must Go in Harlem price points from $89 – 120.  Soon to land in LA at Union and GreyOne.
Regarded as a pioneer of the “athleisure” footwear movement, in 2001 Clae launched its never-before seen hybrid collection that delivered the comfort of a sneaker with classic footwear styling resulting in a new definition of casual. Driving the new found athleisure category, Clae was awarded the Sportswear International Fashion Award (SIFA) for “Best Men’s Footwear Collection” in 2003. Committed to quality, detail, and style Clae is returning, after a three-year incubation, with some cult classics and newly revamped models for a consumer market place craving a fresh take on footwear.
Especially with the constant output of limited edition footwear, companies like JB Classics, Visvim and now also Clae gain more importance, as people want to have some special and unique.
Look out for Clae to appear in many top accounts soon and check out one of their first models after the jump.
