Ac­ces­sories for the Ur­ban Man

SLOW Magazine - - Contents - Text & Im­ages © Tread+miller

Tread+miller of­fers footwear and ac­ces­sories for the ur­ban man, as well as a cu­rated col­lec­tion of ladies’ footwear. This is truly a unique of­fer­ing for the South African male shop­per, a footwear des­ti­na­tion ded­i­cated to the style-fo­cused man.

Tread+miller has re­cently ex­panded their na­tional foot­print by open­ing its 33rd store in Maponya Mall in Soweto. They have cre­ated a mas­cu­line shop­ping en­vi­ron­ment, ac­cented with the smell of cologne and leather, where men feel com­fort­able. The dé­cor is mostly wood and leather, ac­cented with chairs and ot­tomans that are rem­i­nis­cent of a gentle­men's club – the space is not at all what you’d ex­pect in large shop­ping mall.

Tread+miller of­fers a wide range of styles, from boots to brogues and dress shoes to sneak­ers. Their fo­cus is on qual­ity and crafts­man­ship, which is what re­ally ties the range to­gether. A free shoe-shin­ing ser­vice is avail­able in store as part of the Tread+miller ex­pe­ri­ence. Their store teams know the dif­fer­ence be­tween each of the footwear styles, and are on hand to of­fer their ex­per­tise and ad­vice when mak­ing a se­lec­tion.

The chain houses their own brand, Arthur Jack, as well as lo­cally pro­duced Crock­ett & Jones and in­ter­na­tional brands such as Onit­suka Tiger, Cater­pil­lar and Adi­das, to name a few. Tread+miller is pas­sion­ate about shoe care and of­fers a fo­cused range of prod­ucts to pro­tect, clean and re­store any type of leather footwear avail­able in their stores. These prod­ucts are lo­cally made and in­clude suede and nubuck pro­tec­tors, clean­ers and ren­o­va­tors, as well as leather pol­ish­ers, balms and creams.

The cur­rent col­lec­tion in-store is cen­tred on the no­tion of a lan­guid sar­to­rial tav­ern where adapt­able de­signs are at the or­der of the day. This in­cludes reimag­ined menswear favourites that may be worn for both smart and ca­sual oc­ca­sions, with a strong em­pha­sis on ver­sa­til­ity and so­phis­ti­ca­tion for the con­fi­dent, dap­per gentle­man, as well as a range of fem­i­nine sil­hou­ettes with time­less mas­cu­line-in­spired styling for the fash­ion-for­ward fe­male.

In­spired by ad­ven­tures to the world’s fore­most trend des­ti­na­tions, Tread+miller’s in­no­va­tive new range evokes her­itagein­spired styles and dress-downed per­sua­sion with clas­sic colour com­bi­na­tions and a fresh new take on de­tails like shape, fit, ma­te­rial and var­i­ous tac­tile el­e­ments.

Be­sides the core range of clas­sic Tread+miller styles that sets the tone for time­less el­e­gance, they also stock an in­spir­ing va­ri­ety of new in­ter­est pieces across all fab­ri­ca­tions. This in­cludes styled boots that vary from for­mal lace-ups to ca­sual, util­ity-in­spired vari­a­tions with Ro­ma­nian and Por­tuguese in­flu­ences, as well as a new range of Arthur Jack sneak­ers that of­fers the so­phis­ti­cated man a fresh take on “ath­leisure”. Coloured gus­sets, monk strap boots and zip de­tail make fre­quent ap­pear­ances, with crushed leather as an ex­tra eye-draw­ing el­e­ment.

The brand also stocks a wide va­ri­ety of ac­ces­sories, from watches to wal­lets, Si­mon and Mary hats and a va­ri­ety of leather ac­ces­sories.

Their on­line store of­fers cus­tomers the op­por­tu­nity to shop from any­where in South Africa, while they grow their phys­i­cal pres­ence. Visit their web­site at www.treadand­ or con­tact them on +27 86 066 5533.
