Zane Landreth wearing the Klein, Holiday 2011
Having resided on both coasts (Seattle, Boston, New York, and currently Los Angeles), Zane Landreth’s audiophile tendencies were honed and quickly cemented from day one. He ran his high school’s radio station, studied audio engineering in college, and then advanced onto the road as a sound engineer and tour manager for bands such as Bloc Party, Devendra Banhart, and The Bronx. After 8 years of non-stop touring, Zane settled in L.A. and took his love of music to the clubs, where he launched his own parties as both a DJ and promoter, spanning diverse genres. He also owns and runs Mount Analog, one of our favorite record stores and, in Zane’s words “a place for the creative idealist, progressive artist,… and moreover the everyday curious and adventure seeker.”
Based on The Generic Man staple Grafton, the Klein is a classic yet minimal shoe that can be dressed up or down to go with any outfit or personal style. Arriving in charcoal grey wool, black full grain leather and earth pig suede, the Klein features leather piping and contrast welt stitching.
