Do you find it difficult to team footwear with that new Scandinavian raincoat that you’ve just bought? Do you love going to outdoor events but wouldn’t be seen dead in wellies or hiking boots? Do you like pina coladas and getting caught in the rain?
Well those groovy Gothenburgers at Velour have come up with the perfect solution to your wet-weather-wear woes. They’ve only gone and brought out a pair of vulcanised Sperry Top-Sider CVOs and a pair of Chukkas with handy water resistant rubber uppers just in time for autumn. Hey presto! No more wet feet! Genius or what? Seriously though, how smart are they? The white CVOs put me in mind of just the kind of footwear that JFK would have worn to a harbour-based hootenanny. Nice touch with the Velour label too.
The shoes will be available from late October through existing Velour retailers and a handful of selected Sperry Top-Sider accounts.
