Band of Outsiders for Sperry penny loafers: I say!

I have been rather impressed with the bargain Sperry Topsiders I bought a few weeks ago. Soft as you like and perfect for a sockless summer.

That's probably why I've given these penny loafers a second glance. This is Band of Outsiders' version, in a canvas not unlike the type used in Visvim's Moc Abarth Folk.

Possibly a bit pimp daddy for some tastes in that natural cream colourway, and guaranteed to draw dirt to them like a magnet but a nice release all the same from the inventor of the deck shoe. Even now I'm picturing a bar on a dock in the south of France, martini in hand, fake tan on my shins, a lady on one arm, these on my feet.

This is the latest in a series of colabs with Band of Outsiders, and the previous ones are also worth tracking down.

But it's the striped sole that makes these stand out. Nice touch.
