What We’re Saying: Emerging East London brand Stepney Workers Club has teamed up with renowned custom and concept sneaker designer Studio Hagel. Founded by Mathieu Hagelaars, Studio Hagel uses the partnership with SWC to explore the key components and processes that go into manufacturing vulcanized footwear, SWC’s specialty.

Studio Hagel has reworked two of SWC’s simplest designs in the Dellow and Varden. EXP1, which is the first of several experimental drops, focuses on sidewall rubber foxing — a staple in vulcanized sneaker design. The result is two sneakers with exaggerated rubber foxing design details.

Look for the Stepney Workers Club x Studio Hagel EXP1 to drop at the retailers listed above on June 5 and June 19.
