G-STAR RAW – why everyone wants to be in their shoes in 2012

Since 1989, G-Star RAW has been a denim pioneer – originating the concept of ‘luxury denim for the streets’; featuring raw untreated denim as a wearable and desirable fabric and introducing 3D design denim attire. G-Star RAW Footwear has taken the distinctive G-Star RAW style and created a unique collection, which is now accessible in over 1,700 retail stores worldwide. For more than 20years, craftsmanship and originality have been part of everything that G-Star RAW stands for, highlighting the philosophy of ‘Just the Product’. G-Star RAW Footwear re-works authentic styles with new fabrics, finishes and aspects. Attention to detail is paid throughout the design and construction process to take raw ingredients and add a luxury inspired feeling for the street. For Autumn / Winter 2012, G-Star RAW Footwear draws upon the themes of the G-Star clothing collections, focusing on their key denim offering lie RAW Essentials, New Radar, Arc and other programs, like RAW Correct Line and Laundry Army. The range is an extensive collection across both men’s and women’s which offers raw combinations, making them tomorrow’s classics.

The new Autumn/Winter 2012 DISTRICT COLLECTION takes inspiration from outdoor living combined with Metropolitan City Life. The SHERPA – a military ‘ICE BOOT’ is reinvented with the G-Star RAW DNA, leather, waxed canvas, suede uppers and fleece lining. The SUMMIT – a classic outdoor boot collection, authentic in style – features American hide, suede and canvas mix uppers, comfort insoles and unique outsoles. CARABINER the hybrid outdoor boot is also made from American Hide and is fleece lined with striking colour contrast canvas uppers. The CARABINER continues the colour theme with the style available in 4 colour ways and in moc and plain toe shaped designs.

G-Star RAW Footwear’s military inspired collection with an emphasis on boots; The PATTON looks to G-Star RAW clothing detailing for fastenings and lining. The LEGION boot is vegetable dyed in Italian hides for a striking tan colour and every detail, seam and cut is considered to the millimetre and engineered with a view to creating the perfect men’s footwear.

The more tailored CORRECT LINE collection with its classic silhouettes , like the classic brogues, is re-invented and designed to be worn dressed up or down. PATTON features luxury scotch grain and leather uppers, the ETON a colour contrast brogue which has city-appropriate lightweight outsoles and PRECINCT a classic brogue profile with a lightweight sport cup-sole.


The classic sport profile is re-invented for a modern collection with RAW luxury chic; the collection is made from leather, nylon and waxed canvas uppers with a strong G-Star RAW Apparel DNA included in all three design ways – CORE II, YARD and AUGUR. The collection comes in 3 different lengths with eye-catching tonal highlights and colour combinations in unusual dark jewel tones.

Women’s Collection

The new women’s DISTRICT collection has an urban winter look with highlights of feminine silhouettes and a city edge in true G-Star RAW style. The collection’s inspiration comes from
outdoor living combined with a city lifestyle and mirrors the menswear collection. Key designs for women are the SHERPA, SUMMIT and CARABINA styles.

This military equestrian inspired collection is modernised for Autumn/Winter 2012 and inspired by the G-Star clothing collection Laundry Army. The boots, TROOPER SUEDE and MAJA are hardwearing and functional but also on trend and suitable for city living. They are available in a palette of dark colours and feature detailing in the form of buckles, rivets and straps.

each style with a different colour contrast outsole for versatility.
