Spring is in the air (kind of), and it’s got us dreaming of a long hot summer – and wearing these new versions of our Ritchie sneaker all through it. There are three new options to choose from, with unique detailing that makes choosing just one pretty tough.

LISTEN

There’s a lot of people who have been waiting for this – London Grammar’s long-awaited return, coming out with this summer ready tune that’s doubling up as a precursor to their new album, ‘Californian Soil’.

The song brings back what makes London Grammar’s music so likeable; pop repetitions with some alternative undertones inspired by the likes of the legendary XX.

Play this the next time you’ve got a touch of sunshine – it’s guaranteed to get you looking forward to the sunnier times ahead.

TECH

What’s more, from software to the physical hardware inside, this speaker is component replaceable so you can upgrade when the next batch of tech is released.
