EL PORTO

It has a bold, sports-inspired aesthetic. Round laces, dual eyelets, signature coordinates to the side and Fibonacci sequenced inspired stitching and heat flex; all complement the thick duo density EVA outsole with contrast or matching tread. The sneaker can be worn with any casual outfit for a sporty and contemporary silhouette.

THE STORY

Finding a location as inspiration is where the process began when developing this new silhouette and the collections built around it, this channels our experiences, utilizing colors and materials influenced by the city's culture. During this trip we created a retrospective look back for you, our Android Homme family which is meant to let people experience the product in the setting it was designed.

This season, Porto became that backdrop.

PORTO

Porto spans for approximately 925 square miles, the second largest city in portual, the capital of the porto district, and one of the Iberian Peninsula’s major urban areas. Located along the Douro River estuary in Northern Portugal, Porto is one of the oldest European centres and its core was proclaimed a world heritage site back in 1996. This balance of beauty and heritage had a major influence on the design of the collection.

PORTO’S INPIRATION

An old-world city with new-world comforts. The over all feeling of the collection is accentuated by the mix of baroque, neoclassical and splash of belle epoque architecture, all in varying degrees of preservation. We are thankful that we were able to experience the beauty of this place with our Android Homme family, and that we were able to share this inspiration with you. As next week approaches, we look forward to sharing the fruits of our work with you on this brand-new silhouette. We introduce to you the El Porto, the newest addition to the Android Homme family.

EL PORTO

Two innovative and first evers for Android Homme on this new silhouette and come in the form of a two density, full EVA outsole (first time ever a two-colour EVA outsole has been produced out of Portugal) and the use of Codura Advanced Fabrics. This season for the first time we have introduced CORDURA® Advanced Fabrics. The CORDURA® brand innovates fabric and fiber technologies that make your jeans stronger, your backpack tougher, and your step a little lighter.

FULL EVA OUTSOLE

Ethylene Vinyl Acetate soles are the most lightweight and have excellent shock absorption and thermal insulation properties. EVA midsoles work great when it comes to dispersing weight while also providing stability. And because EVA midsole makes it easier for your feet to stabilize themselves as you walk or run, they can perform better for more extended periods.

HAND-CRAFTED SNEAKERS

All our shoes are designed in the UK and handmade by experienced craftspeople in Portugal. Through this collaboration we have merged traditional, artisanal methods with innovative design, applying tried and tested techniques to sneaker silhouettes.

HAND STITCH CONSTRUCTIONS

Quality is found in materials and make-up. The makeup of our sneaker is the make of traditional shoes: hand-stitched, piece by piece, by experienced professionals. It takes years before a production team fully masters a full product. That is why we don’t change our key members. Every step is overseen first-hand by a specialist that still today is finding ways to improve his part of the product.

MATERIALS

This season for the first time we have introduced CORDURA® Advanced Fabrics. The CORDURA® brand innovates fabric and fibre technologies that make your jeans stronger, your backpack tougher, and your step a little lighter. They supply the military with a durable layer of protection in clothing, boots, packs and every kind of gear imaginable.
