Margaret Howell's traditional and simplistic design ethic has been revamped as it launches a new collaboration with Bolton-based heritage footwear company Norman Walsh designed for the A/W '09 MHL label by Margaret Howell.
The MHL trainer is based on the Walsh PB Elite X’treme fell running shoe, which uses ultra light weight and fast drying water resistant material. With an exclusive use of a material called Xymid, that gives extra stability and protection to the toe, heel and instep, the shoe therefore combines technical functionality with Margaret Howell’s pared down simplicity of design.
The trainers will be available in two colour way combinations unique to Margaret Howell. The MHL logo is stitched onto the tongue with the Walsh logo embossed on the leather heel tab, whilst a Walsh authenticity label is discretely stitched inside the shoe.
Available exclusively from Margaret Howell stores and online from September.
