The new season stock is already starting to arrive here at Atom Retro Clothing, and first up is a brilliant injection of footwear class from Original Penguin Mens Footwear. From innovative takes on the classic Mod Desert Boots, to classic Nineties Britpop Indie style Trainers to a burgeoning repartee of fab Retro Espadrilles (Espadrille - what a fab word - I shall repeat this many times today), Original Penguin are fast out of the blocks and streets ahead on style.
It's the cool Retro espadrille rope/hemp sole unit that adds a Vintage Seventies edge to many of the new lines. With heavy stitch finish and combination durable rubber outsole, the only thing left to make this footwear even more awesome is the upper, and Original Penguin don't disappoint. Check out the classic Sixties Mod Desert Boots given the good old contemporary Indie overhaul below. This next to the thoroughly fantastic Retro inspired 'Sawgrass' espadrille creates a sublime Retro stye for the SS12. If these represent the more distant relative to the original espadrille style, then there's also the more authentic version. Full of Retro Seventies inspiration, but with all the the Indie coolness to bring a dashing rock & roll edge to your Summer wardrobe. With the 'Lakeside' Mens Espadrille and the trainer sole counterpart 'Steve' (a very humanised name for an item of footwear, but 'Steve Espadrille' has a certain ring to it), Original Penguin have Summer covered in a very imaginative way.
