This Bella Hadid-Approved Shoe Brand Just Released a New Collab

Both, the Paris-based footwear brand that’s known for its use of rubber, has teamed up with Second Layer, a Californian menswear line, for a new collection inspired by workwear.

The duo’s capsule collection features 15 products that include shoes, ready-to-wear and accessories. The drop, which went live today, is available at select international retailers including ssense.com, WDLT117 and on the footwear brand’s site

 The collection aims to reimagine workwear by combining Second Layer’s relaxed tailoring with Both’s industrial design. The footwear in the capsule includes two shoe styles: a monk-strap GAO creeper and GAO Combat boots.

Since Both’s launch in 2016, the brand’s GAO silhouette has caught the eye of celebrities such as Bella Hadid, who is known to wear the brand’s already-iconic chunky Gao styles and other futuristic boots from the brand while out and about.

Both x Second Layer’s drop comes at a time where consumers’ interest is shifting to more utilitarian and practical needs. As most stay at home, the collab’s pragmatic style sets an example for what brands should focus on in the months ahead.

This is also the latest in a string of buzzy collabs for the Paris label, which have also included Clergerie and more recently, Monse at New York Fashion Week for its fall ’20 collection.
