Hudson- men's footwear

Hudson, a London based company, has been creating men’s footwear for 20 years. And to celebrate their 20th anniversary, they have designed a birthday shoe called the “Bowman”. The birthday shoe is available in black or tan leather as well as green, navy, grey and tan suede- all with two toned leather laces giving an edgy look. The shoe is of Californian construction and the heel formed by tongue and groove slots. The leather sole is stamped with the actual anniversary date 10/10/1990 along with their signature bird. This shoe epitomises Hudson’s philosophy of quality, form and great design.

Also in their main line brand designs is the “Pauli” – their first shoe to have a microlite sole.

In 2004 H by Hudson was launched as the errant younger brother to the main line brand – leading the way in footwear trends and offering affordable innovative footwear whilst staying true to its roots of high quality.
Their Autumn/Winter 2010/11 collection is titled “Into the Wild” and was mainly inspired by Christopher McCandless, a young American who adopted the name Alexander Supertramp and in 1990 hiked into the Alaskan wilderness to live a period of solitude.
The designs are eclectic ranging from the moccasin to the pointed evening shoe therefore appealing to every taste. There are the London East End brogues, high top moccasins, the hybrid moccasin/deck shoe and the working boots. The classic lace up brogues has been updated with their washed look around the toes. This has been achieved by rubbing the leather with alcohol resulting in a cloudy effect. (And we thought alcohol only affected vision). Hudson have pioneered this alcohol wash and so setting a trend. Other footwear has literally been thrown in to the washing machine to create an all over washed look. Don’t try this at home though and especially not with the whites.
Stockists include Office; Urban Outfitters, Selfridges, Mywardrobe.com, ASOS and small independent boutiques.

Again to celebrate their 20th anniversary, Liberty’s will start stocking at the end of June a number of styles from the mainline collection including the “birthday “shoe.
