For this release the guys over at Hanon reworked the entire upper with an old school performance fabric by English textile co. Ventile as well as introducing a padded collar component made from a lux sheepskin leather.
Originally developed during the War for fighter pilot suits, Ventile is a fully water resisant fabric which is lightweight and constructed entirely from untreated cotton. Developed today for performance outerwear, the material’s unique properties are found in the densely woven yarn that expands to create a shield when in contact with water. As a result, Ventile, whilst having the natural feel that cotton provides, offers excellent protection against the elements. Additional design features to the Hanon x Clarks Traxter include a gasket sock liner ortholite memory footbed with a sheepskin top layer, leather hang tag, super light EVA sole unit a dual lace set.
A collaborative branded detail appears via a embossed leather heel tab, woven tongue label and multi screen insert. Each pair will come with a Ventile dust bag.
The Hanon x Clarks Traxter “Ventile” will is now available for purchase in-store only today. Any remaining stock will be available online @ PackerShoes.com @ 12pm noon Monday (3.18.13).
Retail is $130 USD.
