After presenting the porous Consul “Meteor” earlier this summer, Off-White™ and heritage British shoemaker Church’s now announces its third footwear collaboration featuring two unique spins on classic sartorial dress shoes. The first is the Shannon Cut Lines polished binder derby arriving in black calf leather with a polished leather binder finish.
Drawings of stitching and scissors are silk-screen printed across the uppers, replicating the markings used in pattern making, and co-branded motifs are imprinted on the insoles. Additional details include slim waxed cotton laces featuring “Shoelaces” text, green leather zip tie tags which continue Off-White™’s bold signature motifs, and durable diamond rubber soles.
For a more ambitious look, the Burwood Foam reinvents the classic Oxford, arriving in classic brogue patterns, wing tip toes, polished calf leather, and similar black “Shoelaces” with additional bright pink laces stretching upwards of the toebox in a hiking-inspired design found in Virgil Abloh‘s Nike silhouettes. Chunky, two-tone sole units underneath are found in a speckled “foam” effect and finishing touches include handwritten shoe info in the lining and double-layer padded tongue tabs for comfort.
Elsewhere in footwear, Bodega and Clarks Originals reunite for Wallabee “Heritage Patchwork.”
