Maians x Universal Works shoes

For SS12 Universal Works teams up with Spanish pimsoll maker Maians to release a pair of desert boots. Actually, Universal Works is one of our favorite clothing brands and we are glad to see their first shoe coming today. Maians is named after an aren of Barcelona where people live in a very cool, Mediterranean way. Somehow Maians intends to make us aware of this cosmopolitan way of living through their Spanish handmade shoes.

Again, the shoe is totally handmade in Spain featuring a vulcanized sole, a 100% cotton construction and few details such as a leather yoke at the heel or the use of waxed laces. In a word, we might have found our summer shoes with this very innovative pair of desert boots. Available in blue, sand and (both coton) and linen. Please fell free to match them with a pair of chinos, a glass of red wine at hand in a tapas restaurant night lost in the narrow streets of Barcelona’s city centre… a true picture of holidays !

£65 from Glassboutique in navy or sand, or linen
