The artist coop Hello produced this quite unique canvas pattern design entitled "Lost Times", highlighting the long heritage of the SC brand since 1936 - the design was originally made on a 6'x6' canvas using a black sharpie and translated onto the shoe... Not sure if the gray color is a representation of Lost Times in Paris, although looks more like London, but perhaps a Caribbean version would be more lively - I prefer those lost times personally. Cool idea though...

"The B2 cross sneaker by Spring Court is a great pick if you’re still wanting to add to your Spring shoe collection. It has all the components for Spring and even Summer. Cross-perforated white leather body and vulcanized out sole with great eyelet inlays going all around. Definitely a Spring must-have."

The Spring Court sponsored event for Brantley Gutierrez's "Sounds and Light" photo exhibit in SoHo on April 10th was undoubtedly a fun affair-It took this long to recover from the phenomenon. The soiree of fashionista's and artistic folk alike perfectly complemented the photography. Brantley's intimate portrayal was among one of the social highlights of the Spring season. Each individual photograph carried over a sensation as if you were actually at that specific concert, you could feel the emotion, the energy, and the music...and I even spied a few Spring Courts fastened upon the feet of some elite party goers! Way to kick off the Spring, Spring Court!

French brand Springcourt has just entered the US market and already we see the big Japanese stores collaborating with them. Beams International Gallery worked with the brand on two classic canvas sneakers. The Mid B-SP comes in black with black sole and toe cap and white with white sole and toe cap and are now available here.

Not only were the peeps from Spring Court lending a much needed helping hand to the gang of people who set up the Open House gallery for Brantley Gutierrez's "Sound and Light" exhibit. Word on the street is that some folks from digforfire.tv came by to help out, bringing slices and sodas(and some much needed benjamins) as well as staying late to help clean up after the party had concluded. Nothing like a little team work to get the party started! Check the link to digforfire.tv and view a few clips ranging from Bios of featured bands, music videos, documentaries, upcoming shows, etc. Pretty amazing site!

Some people just like to wear them in true simplicity... Apparently SC collaborated with the design magazine Technikart featuring a new collection titled "No Sport"... Living the good life vs. surpassing yourself - a more spiritual approach to sport perhaps.
Esquire Magazine's "The Esquire Ten" ranks Spring Court shoes at #2 as one of the "items on earth that markedly impreove the quality of you life."
Here's what they had to say about it:
2 The Spring Court Sneaker
Look closely at the cover of Abbey Road, as you've done before, only this time it would be helpful if you weren't high. Paul is barefoot, which was one of the album's supposed clues that he was dead, when actually it was our first clue that he was a pant load. John is resplendent, looking Jesus-like in a white suit paired with these, Spring Court G2 tennis shoes. Damn, I'd look good in a pair of those, you think. Nike thinks so, too, so it is issuing its own copycat version with (in typical Yoko licensing handiwork) Lennon's image and a quote from "Imagine" on the toe. But you want the real thing. Thankfully, Spring Court still makes the G2's in France, exactly the same way it's been doing since before the Maginot Line was completed. They are hand constructed of Egyptian-cotton canvas and soft white rubber. They have little ventilation portholes on the side and, when new, smell vaguely of peppermint. They are to sneakers what Scarlett Johansson's mouth is to mouths. And they are to your style, at $70, a bargain.
The White Shoe has been all the rage, yet for the Millennium generation, expectations are at an all time high. Have no fear my friends, Spring Court has mutated the great spectacle into an assortment of colors, materials, prints, and styles. It's almost like a buffet of various options...and all represented in this french commercial that I found lurking on the web, being the fanatic that I am!
I saw this add when I was in Tokyo, funny thing was, out of all the lights and craziness going on in that city, this add stood out the most. Reason: At least 10 Japanese kids standing in front of it, comparing their spring courts with each others. Unreal! I love this shoe
