An AW19 collection inspired by the early 90s rave revolution
The men’s range is inspired by the ideologies and aesthetics of the early 1990’s rave revolution. Rave was Europe’s last big youth movement; a period of radical social and political change. As a music-based culture, it embraced rebellion, invention, and unbridled creativity. This energy is being harnessed by youth today in fashion, music, art, and politics but with a more eclectic, inclusive, anarchic energy. The silhouettes in the range are influenced by this era with bold new shapes, practical outdoors elements, utility boots, and futuristic styling.
The collection is as comfortable as it is aesthetically appealing. There is a shift towards people looking for real experiences especially getting out into the great outdoors which is reflected in the Trek style sneakers and hiking boots. Sportswear as fashion clothing has become interwoven with many subcultures from high-end luxury to streetwear. The 90s aesthetics are expressed in a palette of moody hues with the signature design details throughout. It is wearable luxury combined with a militant attitude. Protest boots and military styling reflect this mood. The bold silhouettes are built for winter but with the added feature of being lightweight.
AW19 offers a monochromatic smart look with modern silhouettes in glossy textures, which can be worn smart but has a casual element. Here it is about the right shades: classic black, bitter chocolate and tan. There are also some new textures with some interesting stamped leathers, such as croc on lightweight loafers and wallaby patterns.

We take great care in the production and design process of our shoes and boots, and make sure that they become so detailed and unique that you could say each SHOE THE BEAR collection gains its own personality as an end result. That’s why we sometimes name them the same way you would name your kid or some would name their cat. We have Cole, who is a really comfortable guy to be around and despite his soft character actually has a few stitches on the body and his round laces. We also have Dev, who's the kind of fella that always keeps his company comfortable and cozy (Warning: don’t let your girlfriend spend time with him. He’s too good).
We have lots of shoes, some with usual names and some with unusual ones. Once you buy a pair that doesn’t really matter anymore - you can name them whatever you like. Anyways, it’s nice to have you here and we sincerely hope you find what you are looking for - or maybe even find something you didn’t realise you needed.
