With the prospect – or we should say, certainty – of a heavy-weather winter ahead of us, sneakerheads will be shivering at the thought of having to shelve their favourite sneakers in favour of more functional footwear. However, there is a saviour. Some of the world’s biggest sneaker brands are rolling out winter-ready adaptations of their most popular sneakers to ensure that seasonal footwear is not obtrusive, chunky and stiff but rather clean, flexible and streamlined. To illustrate our point, we are introducing you to some of our favourite winter-ready sneakers from the latest name to arrive at OPUMO, J Legacee. And, perhaps more importantly, how they can be worn this season. Check out the full edit below.
Established in 2017 by Jeremy Bruno and Jeffrey Platteel, Dutch sneaker brand J. Legacee aims to leave their mark in street culture by creating unique products while also respecting the function, comfort, attitude and style of the modern, minimal sneaker. It is a mission statement that signifies quite a signal of intent from the brand that is aptly named J. Legacee - as the ‘J’ stands for Jay, a unisex name that means ‘victorious,’ and it also reflects the strong ‘winning mentality’ that the brand’s founders possess.
Luxury leather sneaker are, as we have often remarked, the cornerstone of a man’s wardrobe. But you have to ask yourself the question, will they cut it in winter? There comes a point, that your feet might get a little cold, and the leather might get a little creased, and you need to invest in a proper pair of sneakers – like these J1 Sneakers from J.Legacee. J.Legacee’s penchant for meticulous design and unique craftsmanship is evident in the protective oiled suede uppers that provide a neat, clean and reliable sneaker through adverse weather. While the brand’s comfortable rubber outsoles are matched to a rubberised black sole for an added serving durability and comfort.
But what makes the J.Legacee J1 the perfect sneaker to wear this winter is its simplicity. The classic high-top silhouette is cut to sit comfortably above the ankle and they will offer a little-added comfort courtesy of their padded tongue and uppers. Make sure you’re ready for all weather conditions by adopting head-to-toe toughness by pairing the J1 with an Ecoalf Black Livorno Down Coat and a tonal slim-fitting jean from Edwin, to ensure the J1 Sneakers blaze a trail beneath you.
