It’s the season of previews, and the collaboration between Band of Outsiders and Sperry Top-Sider just gets better and better, as this spring / summer 2011 preview proves. What do we love about the Top-Sider? The classic design, the timeless boat shoe design. So BOO keeps the shape, but mixes up the material, using textured leather, colored canvas, and a wide variety of other offerings to give the old boat shoe a new spin.
As part of the ongoing Band of Outsiders – Sperry Topsider collaborations, we’ve gotten a good look at this military styled Chukka. Here’s the thing – we’ve seen this silhouette before. But this time around, it’s redone in what looks like nylon, with a bit of a puffer design, and a military-style stamp on the tongue, giving this chukka a whole new appeal. These Chukkas should be at select Sperry retailers now.
As part of of the ongoing Band of Outsiders collaboration with Sperry, we’re pleased to show you this beautiful canvas penny loafer. A comfortable, casual shoe for the smart looking modern man, we’re digging the sort of 1970s vibe given off by the detailing on the soles, and rough sort of natural canvas uppers. Available online now.
It’s not easy to make a Topsider look like anything new or special. However, when two of the largest labels in the game come together something good is bound to happen. Sperry and Band of Outsiders latest offering is indeed something special. With a new pebbled leather insole, a smooth chocolate nylon and suede outer, and some delicate details like the raised upper row of eyelets, this new Topsider collaboration will not be dismissed as just another colorway.
The Sperry x Band of Outsiders Topsider is available at Opening Ceremony
Designer Band of Outsiders, working with iconic shoemaker Sperry Topsider, has just released their new ‘Checker Pack’ for spring/summer 2010. The line, which feature a grey/black checker boat shoe and chukka, have details like contrasting linings and white or black leather lacing. Available for purchase at Colette.
Band of Outsiders teams up with the perennial Sperry Top-Sider for yet another beautiful collection. Full of suedes and canvas’ (with one black pair or suede/leather boat shoes), the collection is sure to go quick. We see a new pair of penny loafers, with the very classic “penny slip” on the tongue. Personally, my favorite are the seersucker boat shoes; simply beautiful. Now, if you want to buy a pair (which you need to, because it is crucial for your Spring/Summer look) head over to Tres Bien Shop and grab one.
Band of Outsiders, more familiar for their trendy garments and casual outer wear releases two pairs of shoes along with its Band of Outsiders 2010 Spring/Summer collection . Not straying too far from its established sense of easy going aesthetic, the shoes include a pair of loafers and boast shoes done in collaboration with Sperry.
