HUMMEL x HANON 'Standing Only'
We are proud to join forces with Scottish sneaker store HANON to launch the ‘Standing Only’ footwear and apparel pack inspired by terrace culture. ‘Standing Only’ pays homage to the part-time and lower league football clubs in Scotland, shining a light on grassroots football, which plays a huge part of the cultural fabric of the UK.
Both brands draw inspiration for this pack from three teams within the Scottish Highland League; Huntly FC, Forres Mechanics FC and Rothes FC, all of which are situated in the North East of Scotland, where HANON are based.
A TRIBUTE TO THE UNSUNG HEROES
As a number of the teams are located in rural and remote areas, the community is key, with most clubs relying on local volunteers and unsung heroes to ensure the smooth-running day to day.
To shine a light on the most prominent members within the community, hummel & HANON have teamed up with prominent Scottish photographer Brian Sweeney, famously known for his football photo series ‘The Great Stadiums of the North’ to showcase these unsung heroes of Scottish grassroots football.
Each shoe and jersey draws inspiration from the kit colours associated with the respective teams, which are; Huntly FC, Rothes FC and Forres Mechanics FC.
hummel x HANON Super Trimm
HML X HANON SUPER TRIMM 'STANDING ONLY'
Kicking things off in the hummel x HANON 'Standing Only' Football Pack is the Super Trimm, which re-imagines Huntly FC's away colours.
The minimal upper is dressed in a premium strong blue suede with a strong blue premium full grain leather tongue. Colour contrast appears in the form of a deep black sole unit and a black leather heel tab.
Our hummel x HANON collaborative logo lock up for the project sits proudly on both the tongue and on the calfskin top laminated foot bed. Signature details such as debossed branding on the sides, dual-branded heels, a custom hang tag and two sets of laces to finish off the shoe.
hummel x HANON Marathona
HML X HANON MARATHONA 'STANDING ONLY'
The second release in the hummel x HANON 'Standing Only' Football Pack see’s hummel’s Marathona silhouette represent Rothes FC. Originally released in the 1980’s as a long distance running shoe.
The hummel x HANON Marathona features a premium blend of light grey suede and black pebbled nubuck. Bright orange colour pops accentuate the upper while a pinprick perforation is applied to the nubuck underlays.
Both heels feature dual branding, as well as a collaborative logo lock up on both the tongue and on the calfskin top laminated foot bed. The Marathona sole unit & heel counter arrive in light grey & white echoing the hues applied on the upper.
hummel x HANON HB Team
HML X HANON HB TEAM 'STANDING ONLY'
Completing the hummel x HANON 'Standing Only' Football Pack is the HB Team. Despite its origins in handball, the HB Team is no stranger to football, with the Danish National team opting to pair the HB Team with their iconic red and white tracksuits whilst competing in the 1986 World Cup. The shoe remains popular to this day thanks to its enduring aesthetic.
For this HANON makeup, a golden yellow pigskin nubuck wraps the upper, with a tonal golden yellow full grain leather offering a varied texture. A collaborative logo lockup sits perched on the pigskin tongue, while a debossed HANON flame & ‘90’ graphic appear on the heel wrap.
Singing things off is a dark gum EVA wedge sole unit offering a defining contrast whilst staying true to classic terrace styles.
