Oliver Sweeney teams up with London’s cultural institute The School of Life for a slip-on they call “The Philosopher’s Shoe,” also simply referred to as the “Vita.” The footwear sports calf leather on the upper and the lining, a wingtip brogue pattern for a more ornate look, and a yellow heel pull tab that serves as a nod to The School of Life’s signature color. One notable detail is Greek philosopher Thales’ quote, “Head in the stars, feet on the ground,” embossed on the side of the white rubber sole, which basically plays off the collaboration’s inspired name, while lending the overall minimal design a little something extra.
The shoe is now available at Oliver Sweeney.
