Named after Umbro’s design studio in Manchester’s Northern Quarter, The 27A Dale Street footwear collection features six new styles, the highlight being the Spinningfield Millerain collaboration. The British Millerain Company has been providing wax coated natural fabrics for over 130 years. The company is renowned for producing high quality cottons made in the UK, a trait that is shared with the Humphrey brothers, who founded Umbro on the principles of quality, detail and fine tailoring in 1924. Celebrating British heritage, the collaboration is true to Umbro’s sportswear tailoring ethos.
The Umbro collaboration comprises of two styles, the Spinningfield Millerain Mid and the Spinningfield Millerain Check Mid. Both styles feature a heavy-duty waterproof Millerain canvas upper with a premium pigskin collar lining and sock liner. The Spring/Summer 12 silhouette takes inspiration from classic British design and Umbro’s terrace football roots. The Spinningfields are completed with leather lacing and Umbro’s signature diamond eyelet detail.
The Spinningfield silhouette also features in the rest of the 27A Dale Street Footwear range, where a non-Millerain option is available in an understated black and brown colourway with pops of red and blue providing a youthful edge.
Umbro’s 27A Dale Street footwear collection will be available from umbro.com, Office, Offspring (including Selfridges) and other stockists.
