Not releasing till the 15th February 2010, Oki-Ni have made the Mr.Hare Spring/Summer 2010 collection available for pre-order now. Timely just before Christmas. My pick of the collection has to be this ‘King Tubby Shoe’, with obvious suede loafer inspiration, the lace up brings suede shoes to life again, available in Red and Blue with that distinctive white sole unit.

‘How many times have you wanted to say, ‘Don’t step on my blue suede shoes?’ I have never come across a pair of blue suede shoes that could allow one to act so flagrantly, until now. I also love the idea of brothel creepers but those natural crepe soles tend to attract the detritus of the street and invite them into your home. I decided to build a new wedge sole using high density EVA foam that’s incredibly light; with thick leather sole and rubber heal quarter. I used the Orwell last for its sheer confident attitude – the result is modern.’
