Nigel Cabourn x Converse – SP13 collection

April 9, 2013

A collaboration that I know many have been looking forward to is this one – Nigel Cabourn’s take on the classic Chuck Taylor All Star Bosey and a new Specialty Plimsoll, which takes its inspiration from 1941 British P.E. training shoe and fuses it with vintage Converse detailing.







The Bosey boot utilises Cabourn’s favourite fabric, Ventile and has an upper constructed entirely from it. This makes for a wind and waterproof boot and to bolster this is the chunky rubber sole and toe cap, the rubber foxing features raised diagonal stripes. Brass eyelets and gold heal stitching add a touch of contrast to the olive green or navy uppers and inside you’ll find the Ventile label.

The Specialty Plimsoll is a new development and its retro styling features an ultra-high grade Italian denim upper, with a canvas lining and a plain, thick rubber sole and toe cap. it’s available in three colourways – grey, brown and off-white, all of which feature tonal eyelets and lacing. The plain white’s being perfect for Summer.

The Bosey boots are available from Thursday (April 12), with the Plimsolls being released in June. Both will be exclusively stocked by End Clothing in Newcastle, Concepts in Boston and Tenue de Nimes in Amsterdam. For more information on the brands go here: Converse and here: Nigel Cabourn.
