Gourmet is arguably the most successful of the lifestyle sneaker lines launched after the turn of the century, and their lineup continues to grow and evolve to better reflect the brand’s label with each passing season. The spring 2012 lineup brings back plenty of familiar faces while adding a couple new jams, and we’ll start with a couple pairs that we previewed a short while back. The Gourmet Sedici sees its camo suede design contrasted by another pair done in the same vegtan leather that makes up its heel. That same monochromatic luxury is echoed on red and blue suede Sedici Lows, which makes this chukka-inspired family the leader of the Q1 pack. Sedicis lead the way in terms of numbers, but it might be the ‘Space Jam’-leaning Quadici collaboration with Paul Rodriguez’ Primitive that draws the most attention overall. Click through for more including appearances by the Quattro S, Dieci, Dignan and The 28, as well as the all new 35 trainer and Tredici trail shoe. Let us know which one wins this round and expect them at Gourmet‘s e-store shortly.
