Gourmet Quattro S – Chili – Black

gourmet quattro s chili black Gourmet Quattro S   Chili   Black

In its initial form, the Gourmet Quattro looked quite a bit like the Air Jordan XII.  The Quattro shifted its asymmetrical mudguard look to more of a dedicated ollie area with the skate-oriented ‘S’ version, and it’s done so well that the old silo is all but dead.  But even with the altered construction, it’s impossible to look at the latest Quattro S and not think of His Airness.  This bold red canvas and (glossy, but not quite patent) black leather build is arguably the model’s most aggressive design to date, and you can see more of this Flu Game inversion below before copping at shops like CNCPTS.

gourmet ocelot pack available Gourmet Ocelot Pack   Available

Gourmet has built their brand with an understanding of the modern footwear landscape few can match, standing on the shoulders of giants for some elements and going off into leftfield for others.  Their latest release is a good example: a trio of sneakers whose lines can be traced back to modern classics, done in a pack with trendy feline spotting, but in a pattern no other brands have used.  This ‘Ocelot Pack’ includes the Gourmet Quattro S, 35 LP and Dieci all in black and browns, featuring a unique printed ultrasuede imported from Japan.  You can see all three below and purchase them today from Gourmet; which one’s you’re most likely prey?

Gourmet “Camouflage” Pack – Fall/Winter 2012

June 30th, 2012 by | 4 comments

gourmet camouflage pack fall winter 2012 1 Gourmet Camouflage Pack   Fall/Winter 2012

Gourmet’s leopard print ‘Hotpack’ proved the brand’s all-over prints can stand with the best of them, but then again, we already knew that.  It was nearly a year ago that the first camouflage-enhanced suede Uno arrived at retailers, and now we see the success translated to a variety of additional silhouettes.  The Gourmet Quattro S returns with a black suede mudguard in place of last year’s black leather, and will be joined by the Dieci, Dignan and Quadici.  That last trio is listed in order from least to greatest amount of solid-colored contrast, a list that the latest Sedici tops with an olive upper and just a hint of concealment on the heel counter.  Click through for photos of all five, let us know which looks best and stick with Sneaker News for release info.  Photos: Dunk

Gourmet Quattro Skate ‘Camo’

Gourmet will be remembered as one of the pioneers of hybrid design, not because they reached back into their catalog to piece together mashups of the glory days, but because they recognized the malleability of signature design elements from all over the footwear spectrum.  Take for instance the Gourmet Quattro Skate, a model that got its start shortly after the company was established in 2007.  The original Quattro was a line-for-line copy of the Air Jordan XII, right down to the sunray stitching eminating from its unique asymmetrical mudguards.  In recent years, the quilting has been stripped and the mudguard redesigned into something more like an homage than a Xerox, ane even more recently that was transformed into a skate shoe.  It’s a great transition: the adjustment of those offcentered mudguard strips into a distinct ollie area, and on this latest edition it shifts from the skate-friendly suede to a black leather more suitable to pair with the four-color camo canvas uppers.  So we’re looking at a shoe that’s covered in a concealment pattern yet ostensibly wants to be seen, that represents four degrees of design evolution executed in less than four years; can you see why Gourmet is considered a leader in lifestyle sneakers?  Click through to get a better view and stick with Sneaker News for word on when they drop next year.  via Sneaker Freaker

gourmet holiday 2011 look 06 Gourmet Holiday 2011 Footwear Collection

Gourmet is back in your face with a new collection of footwear for the holiday season that proves just how far the brand has gone to establish their own niche within the lifestyle sneaker market.  The only clear indication of Air Jordna aping here is the Gourmet Quattro S, but even those don’t look all too much like the Air Jordan XII that the first models were styled after, their asymmetrical suede mudguards now providing tape-gripping functionality along with understated good looks.  Other standbys like the Dieci will return to bolster a lineup filled with newer designs like the Dignan and Nove, and you can see the entire collection in more images after the jump, then check out the entire photo essay from Gourmet.

Gourmet Quattro Skate – Holiday 2011 + Spring 2012

July 16th, 2011 by | No comments

A rugged take on a design that itself is a revised take on one of the brands originals (which, in turn, copied the Air Jordan XII), the Gourmet Quattro Skate has quite an interesting pedigree.  This Gourmet staple has been held aside as their sole skateboarding sneaker amongst an ever-expanding selection of lifestyle looks, and this new collection for the end of this year into spring 2012 offers a nice balance.  Most of the pairs are tumbled leather with tonal suede on the ollie area, but notable exceptions include the camo canvas/black leather joints and a black-on-black tumbled and patent leather getup that has us wondering what a ‘Space Jam’ AJ12 might look like.  There’s no need to speculate on the future of the Quattro Skate, though; you can see more images of the upcoming colorways after the jump. via FNG
