This particular writer has no intention of watching From The Jam (the Foxton/Buckler Jam spin-off), but I’ve no issue if anyone is looking a night of nostalgia. Likewise, I’m not going to be rushing out to buy the Bruce Foxton shoe from Ikon – but if you fancy a pair, here they are.

Original Ikon will be selling the special edition Bruce Foxton styled shoe this spring,  a four eyelet Gibson shoe with light punch detail across the vamp and toe. The upper is pure white, full grain leather, with black and white checkerboard calf linings, finished off with contrast black stitch detail.

Bruce’s signature is laser etched onto the white sole and each pair will be limited and numbered, sold in a cloth shoe bag and in a ‘luxury shoebox’. You’ll also get a photo of Bruce on the current tour thrown in. Price? No idea, but all will surely become clear in the coming weeks.

Footnote:
A very similar pair of shoes is on the Ikon website right now called the Wilson. None of the limited edition detailing, but selling for £55. Interesting to see the difference in price against the new pair.
