Pairing elegant design with contemporary detailing, UK designer Simon Carter inspired the designers at Rad Russel to create an exclusive collection of footwear infused with Carter’s sense of London style. The collection comprises classic Oxford’s and Derbies handcrafted in calf leathers, buttery leather inners and insoles in Carter’s signature colour – cinnamon.

“I’ve worked with the designers at Rad Russel for many years, and I’ve always admired their energy and modern take on shoe designs,” explains Carter. “Therefore it seemed like a natural partnership when they approached me to work on a collaboration design. I bring a touch of Simon Carter detail and style to their expertise to produce a range that is well-made, sharp, and very wearable.”

There are two styles of shoe in the collection: The Wholecut which takes its name from the outer being made of one whole piece of leather. The second is the Derby which has the eyelet’s sitting above the upper on two separate pieces of leather. The upper of the shoe is calf leather. The lining is sheepskin leather. This allows the imprint of the foot to be taken quickly by the shoe for increased comfort. Fewer weeks of having to wear them in! The Heel inner is suede to increase grip and comfort. Durable and Soft latex cushions covered with sheepskin leather offer a supportive inner and help maintain comfort around the foot’s arches. Anti-slip rubber outer-sole in the signature Simon Carter house Paisley. Ideal for London weather as the rubber provides essential grip and durability as compared to a leather sole. The shoes are retailing at S$268.
