Yogi x Johnny Marr14. 04. 2022
For our latest collaboration we’ve teamed up with rock royalty Johnny Marr, to introduce you to a brand-new style of Yogis. Based on a 90’s archive style, the Rishi’s minimalistic design has been developed on our classic crepe outsole complete with an unlined leather or suede upper. Available in an array of earthy toned, this limited collection features 5 colourways, Dark Olive, Dark Brown, Black Tumbled Leather, Senape Sand, Black Suede, and all perfectly finished with a duel branded foot bed and external swing tag.
Marr’s career first started back in 1982’s when the young musician joined Manchester rock and roll band The Smiths, his creative journey further found him at the heart of The Electronic, Modest Mouse, and The Cribs. Since then Marr perused a solo career leading him to have four UK Top Ten albums, he also recently featured on the soundtrack for James Bond, No Time to Die. As one of the most influential songwriters and guitarists in British History, it was a pleasure to partner with him for this collaboration.
“It’s exciting to have the opportunity to work with Yogi on the Johnny Marr Rishi shoe. Yogi have been making shoes for me on my last few tours. They invited me to take the creativity a stage further and design a new shoe that would be perfect for me. Hopefully other people will think they’re perfect for them too.” – Johnny Marr
As a fan of Yogi since the 90’s, our long-standing relationship with Marr goes back 25 years. As the guitarists ‘go to’ footwear brand, you’ll most likely see Johnny in a pair of Yogis on stage. To celebrate this collaboration we interviewed Marr on all things Yogi, fashion, and rock and roll…
Working with such an iconic musician has been a pleasure and something we’d love to continue in the future, check out Johnny Marr’s new album here
