Balenciaga’s Arena sneakers are a cult favourite, and the Parisian label offers the design in stingray-effect leather for added panache. Ideal for adding a textured accent to monochrome looks, this pair is essential for high impact city style.
Left school to play professional football in 1999 before a chronic knee injury forcing me to retire in 2002. Began coaching football full time in 2002 until 2006, during this time I was involved in the set up of SLAMXHYPE when it launched in 2003. My role at SLAMXHYPE became full time in 2006 and I moved to Japan the following year to concentrate on building the SLAMXHYPE name before launching THE NEW ORDER print magazine in 2009. I continue to combine both roles at SLAMXHYPE and THE NEW ORDER while also working as a freelance stylist and writer for various brands and magazines.
