John Geiger has established his eponymous label as a footwear brand for those who like their style a bit left-field, with its GF-01 coming as a strong contender for a luxurious take on a classic style we all know and love. Continuing the luxurious theme is the label’s latest 003 colorway, “Lux Grey,” which doesn’t just take its name from the palette but also because of its elevated use of materials.
The 003 has always adopted luscious materials well — need we remind you of this “Python” variant? Now, the style appears with an upper made from leather, suede, mesh, and python skin, cohesively coming together on a multi-shaded gray upper for an understated look.
However, the label adds signature hits of “Volt” on components such as the lace lock and its oversized webbing heel tab, while a set of the two-tone rope laces rounds off things up top (alongside tongue branding, of course). As for the sole unit, “thick,” “sturdy” and “durable” have been used to describe this contemporary take on a chunky base. It’s angular and sculpted but extends at the rear and sides with a grid-effect on the wear touchpoints along the sidewall.
John Geiger’s 003 “Lux Grey” is set to release today online at 12 p.m. EDT and will cost $320 USD. Expect the silhouette to sell out, if previous drops are anything to go by.
