Outsiders Apparel has been on our radar for some time – this fresh streetwear label from Edinburgh has been causing something of a stir in the fashion world and their clean designs have found favour with some industry big hitters. The brand hit the big time earlier in the year when supermodel Cara Delevingne was spotted wearing a number of designs over the summer and the recently launched “Urban Explorer” collection has proved a huge hit with orders being shipped across the globe.
We’ve always championed local design and are proud to announce a limited edition collab tee with Outsiders to celebrate our 30th anniversary. The Wolf tee has been exclusively designed for Outsiders by renowned artist Iain Macarthur who’s designed for Nike, Umbro and 55DSL in the past. The tee features a bold print as well as a small “leaders of the pack – since 1984” message which references the launch date of Xile. This ultra-limited edition tee will be launched at our VIP shopping event this Thursday – with only 200 tees available we’d recommend snapping one up fast to ensure you don’t miss out.
We’re also delighted to announce that the team from Outsiders will be “popping up” at our shopping event this week with their new AW collection. The “Urban Explorer” range is Outsider’s best collection to date and we’re really excited have it available instore.
The wolf tee is priced at £25 and will launch this Thursday at our 12 Frederick St VIP Shopping event.

If you loved Adidas Y-3’s techy Qasa racer model, released at Xile earlier in the year, then the latest offering from Adidas Originals will be right up your street. This fashion forward sneaker is the polar opposite of Adidas heritage range and pushes boundaries in footwear and fashion. The Adidas Tubular pack is dropping at Xile on November 21st and promises to be one of this season’s hottest releases.
The name tubular is taken from the innovative outsole construction which is based on inner tyre tubes. The shoe is a modernist blend of fashion, function and comfort that challenges the very best fashion shoes on the market today. Although the styling is a huge departure from heritage based lines – there is an undoubted ZX 7000 influence, most notably in the heel stabiliser. This project has been the brainchild of Adidas design guru Nic Galway who has been working on the project for 5 years.
The style of this shoe is truly outstanding. A slim neoprene sock upper is suspended on a much chunkier sole composed of EVA tubing. Available in four colours this is one release you don’t want to miss. Available (in strictly limited numbers) from 21st November.

To celebrate our 30th anniversary, on Thursday the 20th of November we've decided to do the mature thing and invite a few friends round for some drinks, music, and show off our favourite brands, designers and artists. Hopefully that distracts everyone from the fact we are now part of the “old team”.
We hate getting presents so thought we would give you one instead and offer 20% OFF all products in-store on the night and for every purchase made you will be entered into our prize draw to win a £500 shopping spree.
For entertainment on the night Edinburgh club Nightvision will be providing a selection of their residents DJ's and we will be hosting two “meet the maker sessions” with local street wear brands Pieute and Outsiders Apparel, both of whom will have their new collections available for sale.
To get your exclusive invite for the night simply RSVP to email@example.com and enjoy the night.

After the Pharrell Williams X adidas collaboration dropped last week we're ready for some more exclusive sneaker action. After Kanye West jumped ship from Nike to adidas earlier this year we've been itching to see what his collection and new shoes will look like.
The design has been a tightly held secret……until now! This picture surfaced this week which shows Kanye looking upon a never before seen sneaker. Is this the new Yeezy? Is it the final design? Is it nothing to do with Kanye? Is his new mother in law the most annoying women in the world? None of these things have been confirmed yet but the strap across the laces looked very reminiscent of the Nike Yeezy.
Hopefully all will be revealed sooner rather than later...
