The Hypebeast has shown some love for the new line from Pointer. Since its establishment in 2004, London’s Pointer Footwear has emphasized a combination of simple, well-designed casual footwear with premium materials and detailing. Remaining true to that ethos is the Tenzing. Inspired by rugged hiking boots, this refined low-top edition features a burgundy suede upper alongside a tan leather collar, metal D-ring eyelets, rope laces and a lightweight rubber outsole. A part of the Sunbury collection for Spring/Summer 2012, the burgundy/camel-white Tenzing is now available!
