Over the past couple of years, a very exciting footwear story has been developing right on our doorstep. Tim Brown, once the captain of the All Whites, and Jamie Mclellan have developed a beautifully simple running shoe – with an upper made from wool. Finally the shoes are almost ready to be released, and a kick starter campaign has meet its 30k target in just over 24hours. We have had a student intern with this company in the past, so we wish Tim Brown all the best with his running shoe from down under! And If you are a sneaker freaker, get in there!
