Android Homme ‘Made in Italy’ Collection

Android Homme 'Made in Italy' Collection

We first covered Android Homme a short-while back when we had the opportunity to meet the founder and designer of the LA-based brand, Javier Laval. When you can see the passion and confidence in a person’s eyes, you’re automatically drawn to the them and that’s what happened with Javier. Now, with the release of the brand’s Made in Italy collection, he’s really got our attention. “I wanted to offer our customers the joy of owning a beautifully designed, authentic product from Italy for under $300,” said Laval. The lineup features a few different styles in both high-top and low-top variations. The pieces are everything you’d expect when each pair is hand made by a small family of cobblers on the Adriatic coast of Italy. The use of hand treated leathers, vegetable tanned leathers, 3M pull tabs, laser etched eyerows, and incomparable comfort is what sets this collection apart.

Android Homme Holiday 2012 Collection

Android Homme Holiday 2012 Collection at Project NY

With all the exciting things going on at this week’s Project tradeshow in NY, we were still making time to prowl for new, eye-catching product. We had the opportunity to chat with Javier Laval of Android Homme, an LA-based footwear brand. We’ve seen the label get some respectable coverage on various publications, online and off, but we hadn’t really gotten the opportunity to see what the brand was about. After speaking with Javier and getting a peek at what they’re delivering as part of their Holiday 2013 collection, we were beyond impressed. Though we can see some of the pieces be too eclectic for some of you guys out there, it’s important to focus on the attention to detail that goes into every single pair. We’re talking black/red pony hair mocs and python skin high-top sneakers.

Beyond the unparalleled level of creativity that’s being utilized by the Android Homme team, there’s also a high level of innovation. Some of the sneakers in their latest lineup feature an EVA sole that’s as light as a feather, which gives us a shoe that weights next to nothing. Android Homme continues to live in the future and it shows in the final product. We took some shots of our favorite styles below, so be sure to check them out below.
