The Lost Interview: Van Homan

Posted in Features, News | April 10, 2015


Working in this industry you always start things with the idea that everything will work out perfect. In most case you end up facing hurdles and you have to strive to get things accomplished. We had just wrapped up an interview with Van for a sports based feature in Front Magazine. If anyone is familiar with Front it’s more of lads n tits type of mag but they certainly had a great reach and we thought it could be fun to do. Everything was set in motion, the interview was done, Van got some photos with his dog and then, right when we really didn’t expect it the magazine went bankrupt and the interview was hypothetically lost at sea with no place to moor.

After a few attempts to get the interview featured in other publications we ended up drifting away from the idea and working on other things. Since then it’s always been on my mind to find the interview and bring these cool photos to life. So here it is, finally.

Jared’s original 1&9 signature shoe was released a good few years ago, so an update has been long over due. Looking fresh for 2014 the all new 1&9 builds on the foundations of the old shoe but delivers far more. Designed from the ground up two achieve two things, work great on the bike, and look good off it.

The shoe is built on the incredibly grippy Almond Vulc sole, which includes a built in PU shock absorber under the heel to prevent bruising. A reinforced heel cup and strengthened upper ensure the shoe offers plenty of support . The materials, stitching details and clean lines give the shoe a look that masks the shoes rider focused design.

Jared 1

Back when we started this adventure we had a few issues with Jared’s first signature shoe; the 1&9. We decided to develop and continue to grow the other models and come back to Jared’s shoe once we had a better view of what we wanted and what Jared wanted. We are happy to say we’ve finally finished the all new mark II version and these will be part of the AW13 range out in the shops in November 2013. Read More
