We aligned with Reebok for the third time to reinterpret the Classic Leather and Club C Ultraknit silhouettes, as it delves deep into today’s social conflicts to break gender conformity and unite communities of all kinds with this “Now / Never / Forever” footwear capsule.
To exhibit this progressive ideal, the black Club C Ultraknit displays high-density supportive text printed along the outer side of the shoe: “Today for Tomorrow / Morning til Night / Decompress and Relax / Let It Speak To You / Now / Never / Forever.”
Meanwhile, the Classic Leather flaunts a white leather upper, navy heal tab, and three hues of pink layered on the foam bottom. This model features the shortened version of the high-density text: “Publish – Today for Tomorrow: Now / Never / Forever” on the outer front of the shoe.
We teamed up with The North Face on a follow-up to “Midnight in Antarctica” installment with our second footwear offering “Earth’s Core.” We now get a full look at the collaboration which unites our design aesthetic with two favored North Face silhouettes: the Litewave Ampere II HC and the ThermoBall Traction Mule II, both highlighting vibrant warm tones and lightweight materials for breathable trekking functionality.
The Litewave Ampere II HC features a sock-like mesh construction for ankle support, heel/toe cap protective overlays, rubber outsole with strategically arranged lugs and lex grooves for enhanced traction. The ThermoBall Traction Mule II highlights PrimaLoft insulated slip-on with a grippy rubber sole constructed of 40% recycled materials, compressible lightweight ThermoBall insulation to retain warmth and 100% recycled/water-resistant PET ripstop uppers, providing the ideal comfort and protection.
We’ve come together with CLAE once again to proudly present the Bradley Mid sneaker, a brand new silhouette that embodies the street-meets-luxury space of the sneaker market. Last year we teamed up together for the camel-colored Gregory SP collaborative. This time however, this latest project brings an understated all-black approach to a timeless mid-cut model. Sporting a monochrome “Night Moves” colorway, the Bradley Mid is fashioned from luxurious oiled suede with leather linings — the uppers sit atop a durable cupsole platform, while the white ankle collar is built from neoprene for a slight contrast.
Limited to only 500 pairs worldwide.
Featuring the Furylite and Furylite Chukka silhouettes, we have come together with Reebok Classic to produce the “Dark Desert Project.” Using a dramatic volcanic eruption as inspiration, we reworked the footwear models to reflect the “before” and “after” effects of the catastrophe. Rendered with a striking black and white palette, the classic sneakers are reimagined with the same sleek, minimalist style that is hallmark to our aesthetic. The Furylite is constructed with a luxe white leather upper, accented with segments of cream. In contrast, the boot-like Furylite Chukka showcases a dark obsidian leather body, detailed with a white fragment on the heel counter.

We’ve partnered up with classic footwear brand CLAE for a collaborative shoe, titled “The Natural State.” The shoe takes upon CLAE’s Gregory SP silhouette with its perforated panels and woven nylon laces, and has co-branded insoles. It’s crafted from natural Italian vegetable-tanned leather in two-toned textures, with the front toe box and inner medial side featuring the reverse side of the leather. The casual low-top has a smooth beige colorway that is inspired by the desert landscape of California’s Joshua Tree National Park, and it also comes wrapped in a custom-made bandana that features Joshua Tree’s geological elevation on it. The collaboration is a purist approach to footwear with a clean design that celebrates natural raw materials. The Publish Brand x CLAE ”The Natural State” will be launched at a limited production run of 500 pairs, with each pair numbered on its packaging. Look out for its release April 30 at select global stockists as well as CLAE and Publish.
Finally all the buzz and excitement manifested into reality last weekend when the Publish Brand crew took flight to visit our account Kicks Hawaii for the official in-store release of the Publish x Vans OTW Breton Boot. The event kicked off at 1pm on the 26th of October in Honolulu with talented DJ Delve and Dam-Funk on the turn tables. With the entire store grooving to funky jams, the event ended on a great note with our team, the Vans team, Kicks HI, friends, family, Publishers and shoe lovers connecting about the highly anticipated release of this premium boot.
The intricate details of this Breton definitely need a second look. Don’t be fooled by the boot’s simple colorway. The excellent quality and execution of this boot is the reason why Kicks On Fire named the Publish x Vans collaboration “Boot of the Year.” The clean colors selected for the design compliments any outfit, making it a staple in everyone’s wardrobe. The black nylon upper is water-resistant for every day wear, while the white leather mid-sole contrasts the rest of the boot for aesthetic style. The back panel is reflective constructed of 3M materials to make you pop, when necessary. The perforated neoprene tongue and collar paired with an UltraCrush HD and Vibram sole adds great comfort to this exclusive fall boot.
