Gourmet Footwear keeps pumping out fresh styles. Their latest offering that has been receiving a lot of attention is Gourmet "The 28"
. It features a huge smoothed out air bubble outsole, which was modified from the Nike Cortez-like tread used on the popular Quadici model. The 28 also sports a chukka-style upper, which many think was inspired by Clarks and visvim, mesh wrapping around the ankle, and leather laces. Although Gourmet gained a lot attention early from their Air Jordan-inspired designs including the Uno, Due, and Dieci, they are really starting to step out of that box. If this model is like the rest of the Gourmet collection, it will be available in different colorways and textures. Look for The 28 soon at your favorite Gourmet stockist.
