This Camo Sneaker Collaboration Releases Just In Time For Spring


In case you’re not familiar, Nottingham, England-based menswear brand Universal Works draws inspiration from 20th-century workwear, vintage sportswear and military uniforms, creating a catalog of large scale that works surprisingly seamlessly. The mix is ​​a common cocktail of reference points for most modern brands, but Universal Works designer (and co-founder) David Keyte adds a personal touch to each piece. It makes the clothes more authentic.

Case in point? The Universal Works Bakers jacket, which is purely an adaptation of a chore coat, but built to the specifications of his father, who was a baker.

When the brand collaborates, this authenticity is perpetuated. The resulting products are in equal parts for both parties. For example, this new series of camo sneakers, made in collaboration with Novesta, is Universal Works’ eighth co-branded collection with the Slovak company. But the repetition isn’t rooted in replicating a successful formula (although all of them sold out quickly).

“Universal Works’ relationship with Novesta began in 2015 after the brand provided footwear for the Universal Works Spring/Summer 2016 ‘Not Another Catwalk’ presentation,” a press release read. “The partnership is based on a good product, good people and a real gathering of like-minded people.”

The four-part collection includes two Star Dribble Hi Tops and two Star Master Low Tops, each in two different camouflage patterns: earthy olive and sleek silver ecru.
