The Commonwealth x CLAE Hoffman fuses an east coast aesthetic with west coast roots, providing both modern comfort and styling versatility. This collaboration was born out of a decades-long strong working relationship between Commonwealth’s Creative Director, Omar Quiambao and CLAE Creative Director, Sung Choi. With both brands continuing to maintain an appreciation and understanding for understated details.
Blending classic athletic styling and exceptional comfort, the Hoffman is built on an innovative ultra lightweight blown EVA outsole with a TPU cup for maximum comfort and stability. The Commonwealth x CLAE Hoffman features a beautiful long hair suede, neoprene inner collar and a full train veg tan leather heel with reflective detail. The unique grey and blue tone hues is a playful nod to a rare and unique French Bulldog, Lola, Commonwealth’s unofficial mascot.
Limited to 350 pairs worldwide. The Commonwealth x CLAE Hoffman, priced at $120 will be exclusively available at Commonwealth VA, Commonwealth DC, and Commonwealth-FTGG.com starting December 15th, as well as at the newly opened Commonwealth Manila on December 22nd. Each pair from Commonwealth comes with a limited edition tote bag, designed exclusively for the collaboration.
