Barneys in New York has been a fashion staple for almost 100 years. Providing a fashion fix for the uptown crowd with their range of luxury designers, whilst also keeping the downtown crew happy by supporting emerging talent.

Over the last six months they’ve launched the XO (Exclusively Ours) footwear programme called Sole Series, the aim of which is to introduce eight limited edition shoe styles over six months. These two Brooks Chariot Runners are the seventh release in that series and for it they’ve gone for a vintage collegiate inspired duo of colourways for these 80’s runners. Chris Pepe, Barneys senior men’s footwear buyer said “We were really inspired by vintage varsity jackets, which is how we landed on the collegiate colors of black and burgundy.” he also adds “the concept for the collaboration with Brooks started as a vintage collegiate theme since this particular style was one of the top running silhouette’s from the 80s.  We kept the main color scheme but added the reflective toe and tongue, making a material that is typically a minor detail on technical running shoes one of the focal points.”
