Still loving the collaborations at Sock&Sole we have another one for you! Be@rbrick, the toy bear makers from Japan, have released a new sock with one of its bears. In truly limited edition fashion, may I present, the Be@rbrick x Happy Sock.
Made in Maine, New England, Quoddy are purveyors of the finest moccasins Sock&Sole has had the pleasure of writing about. When first looking at the collections, we looked at the price and not much else, but as the old adage goes, you really do get what you pay for! Individually hand sewn shoes, the finest materials and comfort to match! Check them out on their site... But as usual S&S's representation does just as good a job!
Following on from Tom Ford's Five Easy Lessons To Be A Modern Gentleman, Sock&Sole interprets 'Rule 1) You should put on the best version of yourself when you go out into the world because that is a show of respect to the other people around you.' As a tedious way of saying...wear great shoes. Wear greater socks. Happy Socks agree and have produced a sock of gentlemanly ilk.
'Hermes, Pastelle, I pass the [VANS]!?
Hermes have embarked on a collaboration which theoretically shouldn't work on any level. But strangely enough it does. Classic Hermes design meets contemporary slip on plimsoll. Based on designs from Robert Verdi's vintage Hermes scarves, the end product speaks for itself.
