Rock'n'Roll for your Feet
At GDS this Amsterdam leather jacket specialist will be launching its first shoe collection for the Spring/Summer season. The second shoe collection so far, the brand once again looks to the characteristic mix of traditional skilled leather craftsmanship, authenticity and a pretty rock'n'roll attitude.
'leather.forever.' is the claim of the brand founded in 2006 that looks to the strength of leather craftsmanship to give the jackets their characteristic look to tell their own individual story. They are given a contemporary look thanks to modern styles, materials, patterns and finishes. The Goosecraft brand is made up of the words 'Goose', the legendary tailor’s iron and 'leathercraft' and 'craftsmanship'. With 600 points of sale in 15 countries the Dutch label is now an established leather specialist.
Authenticity, individuality and rock'n'roll chic are also reflected in the new shoe collection for the 2017 Spring/Summer season. It includes both relaxed casual classics and western-inspired boots for women. Robust boots and classics like deck shoes and Chelsea boots are offered for men.
The styles are available in suede and nubuk leather, mainly with soles made of washed leather. Uppers made of monochrome or multi-coloured snakeskin give wearers a fashionable appearance. A real eye-catcher are styles made of silver-laminated, coarse grain leather.
The colour scheme ranges from summery brown tones like sand and cognac through to cool grey tones like pale grey and anthracite. The shoes are made in the north of Portugal. For this only high-quality leather tanned in Europe is used that is given a 'worn-in' hand finish. Rock'n'Roll also means consciously swimming against the tide: in its first Spring/Summer collection Goosecraft deliberately dispenses with the evergreen sneakers. True to the claim: 'leather.forever.'
