As you do, I met up with one of the guys from Android Homme at a boat party back on Boxing day during my trip to Hong Kong for Christmas.
Admittedly, I knew nothing about Android Homme before then, but all I knew was that his kicks were looking fresh! I think they were Propulsion 2’s but anyway, what caught my eye was the quality of the overall trainer.
I don’t know how these guys do it but, cracking the seemingly saturated sneaker market during a recession with a product made of the highest quality materials must have some people scratching their heads in bemusement.
Android Homme have indeed cracked this tough market and they also seem to be one of the pioneers of growing trend of “premium trainers” such as Dior, Louis Vuitton & Kris Van Assche. May I stress that even though Android Homme is a premium trainer it does come with a considerably more affordable price tag (£100 approx). This is particularly good news for me as I am still saving up for a pair of Kris Van Assche’s.
After much success from the release of Propulsion 2, there is now another limited edition colour available. The Propulsion 2 is now available in zinc metal and there are only 200 pairs available! As I expected, this release comes with all the “bells & whistles” such as pigskin lining, full grain leather and waxed laces.
This release is only available from their site here. Check out the images below including the original Propulsion 2’s (Black and White)
