Not your average dockside equipment

It’s like a deck shoe, but off its box on rum. This multi-leather/suede offering is a frantic mixology of browns and textures – it’s not your average dockside equipment. Sure, there’s a old blokeish thing going on and for many they’ll whisper heritage a little too strongly. But with a clean navy fit, maybe with some slightly peculiar Japanese workwear jacketing, I think these will perform the, “where the fuck did you get those?” job admirably.

Where indeed? You’ll have to look to our Canadian friends Blue Button Shop to swag these. They’re a Russell Moccasin x Blue Button Shop colab and (unlike a bunch of other colabs you can point to) I like  how they’ve gone all out to make something genuinely unusual.

To read the official colour mix onboard these shoes, further brings to mind the accoutrements within a professional boozeman’s cabinet – “whiskey cavalier chromexcel, chocolate weather tuff, burnt orange fleshy.” It’s all very 70’s gigalo. And as a man most at home lying on leather sheets in a short silk robe, I can only approve.

    Aces.
    But at least four different leathers topped out with nylon laces?
    They’d have to go.

    WDD – good spot.
    What’s going on at the back of the left foot – dark leather… crinkle cut??
    Still like them though (sans nylon laces)
