Represent Introduces Women’s Sizing on All-Time Classic Reptor Low Sneaker
Arriving in its first-ever footwear line dedicated to women.
British brand Represent has revealed that it will now be expanding its offering to make way for its growing female consumer base. Known for its capsule approach to streetwear design, the label has already begun crafting its coordinating garments in smaller sizes but will now introduce its first collection of everyday sneakers dedicated to women.
The new line debuts with the Reptor silhouette – a popular sneaker in its men’s footwear catalog. As one of the first sneakers in Represent’s range, the model has been central in blurring the lines between casual and luxury aesthetic, with its all-round design lending to various high-low outfits. Its arrival in the women’s range aims to push this way of versatile styling even further.
At first look, the women’s version of the Reptor presents an identical low top silhouette with a flat-surface rubber sole. Similarly to the existing model, its textured body is handcrafted in Portugal with a mixture of smooth and full-grain leather as well as a soft suede adorning the upper. Whilst the Represent branding is kept minimal, these fabric panels are carefully assembled to spell out “REP,” emphasizing its refined design.
Speaking on the process of constructing women’s sneakers, the brand’s founder and creative director George Heaton explains, “It is clear that the female market has an interest in our product, so aligning to this need was an easy transition for the brand. With footwear, the process has been much longer,” he continues. “For our first women’s shoe collection, we wanted it perfect. This meant redesigning the men’s footwear completely to fit the naturally slimmer shape of the female foot. It’s been a long process, but anything worth doing is worth doing right.”
