Alumni x Brooks Regent “Great Mistake”

Brooklyn-based sneaker shop Alumni collaborates with Brooks this spring for the “Great Mistake” Regent inspired by the early days of the greatest city on Earth. Drawing inspiration from the union of Manhattan and Brooklyn, the “Great Mistake” Regent features subtly mismatched color blocks across the left and right shoes, each representing the two boroughs. Both shoes feature a canvas base with premium suede and nubuck overlays in a vintage color palette of tan, cream, and mauve. Further details include maps of Manhattan and Brooklyn circa 1890 on the insoles and dual branding on the heels and tongues.The Alumni x Brooks Regent “Great Mistake” will release this Saturday, March 4th in-store (Crown Heights & Flatbush locations) and online from Alumni, along with select Brooks Heritage retailers everywhere.
