Band of Outsiders and Sperry Top-Sider have an ongoing collaboration that dates back 4 to 5 years. Every season the two brands team up to co-release a line of footwear, which usually includes some sort of new rendition of Sperry’s popular Chukka. Since it’s a fan favorite, it only makes sense to bring it back this year. Since they’ve used wool, suede and leather on their previous releases, Band of Outsiders opted to construct the Chukka from ripstop nylon this year, giving you the choice between Aluminum, Gold or Black colorways. Aside from being lightweight and durable, ripstop is also water-resistant, meaning these bad boys are ready to hit the open waters with no worries involved. Additional details include a pinstripe cotton lining, metal eyelets with a hiking-inspired hook eyelet at the top and leather laces, all of which has become synonymous with the range.
The Band of Outsiders x Sperry Top-Sider Ripstop Chukka is available through select Sperry distributors in limited quantities, which includes End, where they’re priced at £199.00 ($325 USD).
