The ever popular Maians, the Original Spanish Plimsoll Company, are back at John Anthony for SS13. Maians hand make each pair of shoes with a painstaking attention to craftsmanship to produce a shoe which is incomparably comfortable, as well as durable using vulcanized rubber sole.
The lively maritime district of Barcelona was once a barrier island called Maians, which over centuries became a peninsula: the Barceloneta. The inspiration for the SS13 collection stems from the full of life neighbourhood itself, a veritable melting pot of contrasts, colours, textures, smells and sound. This is reflected in the materials, trims and laces in the season collection.
John Anthony offers a variety of styles showcasing the best Maians have to offer, from the boat shoe inspired Narciso to the Julian Lace shoe. A new style to John Anthony is the Felicano which gives a summer twist on the penny loafer mixing canvas upper, suede strap detail and vulcanized rubber sole unit. The Amador Tassel is a returning classic with extra dealing of contrast trim around the heal in keeping with this seasons inspiration. A very versatile shoe can easily be worn with chinos, shorts and jeans making it ideal shoe for the hopefully sunnier months ahead.
