Velour Nostalgi + Sperry Top-Sider | All weather trainer collaboration
As we're fast approaching Christmas and the weather is really starting to bite, it seems odd to be thinking about the summer. Brands always have to think one-step ahead though - they did Christmas about 6-months ago. I remember a bizarre press trip to Pizza Express in June, where waiters dressed as Father Christmas delivered cranberry sauce covered pizzas through a flurry of fake snow.
That said, the collaboration between Sperry Top-Sider and Velour by Nostalgi could easily suit an English Winter just as well as an English Summer. A robust, water resistant trainer, that looks wipe-clean. A pair of thick socks will see these work well on a Boxing Day walk and 6-months later on a Glastonbury hillside. Well, Velour are from Sweden, so what did you expect?
