The Pick: The tech mesh sneaker to bring texture to smart casual

Categories: The Pick

There are few shoe brands as shamelessly steeped in science as Harrys of London. Where other brands seem to relish the rustic way in which they craft their footwear – thick sole-stitching needles, heavy leather cutting shears and a general air of traditionalism pushed to the fore – this London-based brand is looking to the future.

Influenced by technology and innovation, and made in Europe to meticulous and exacting standards, Harrys of London, in collaboration with Technogel®, has developed a full gel innersole that offers excellent cushioning and a new kind of comfort, soft, stable and functional. And, for the first time from Autumn/Winter ’17, all of the brands footwear will feature Harrys innovative 3D Technogel®, the orange innersole designed to fit all the sneaker family.

The original Jones Sneaker – one of Harrys of London’s classic and signature styles – has been a stalwart of the range almost since Harrys inception. This year, the brand has given the shoe a Tech Mesh refresh, imbuing it with even more technology to create a softer step and more comfortable shoe.

Crafted with premium tech leather than has been printed on for a mesh effect, the sneaker has been reborn – at once iconic and fresh. The aforementioned innovative 3D Technogel® sole also makes an appearance, but all of this thought inside the shoe is tempered by minimal branding and clean lines on the outside – making for a sophisticated pair of sneakers.
