Scandinavian simplicity combined with Italian craftsmanship and tradition

Opumo x Footwear


Opumo just recently took a huge leap as they expanded their collection from various accessories to cover casual footwear as well.

And not only did they bring one or two models available but multiple choices from 6 different brands (Sanders, Grenson, Mark Mcnairy, Buttero, Sperry Top-Sider and YMC)

Decided to pick few of my favorites from the launched selection.

Buttero blue suede low sneakers

Exclusive to Opumo for spring-summer ´14 this pair features Italian suede uppers, leather laces, metal eyelets and off-white rubber soles. Suitable with light colored denim or white cotton slacks for example, my absolute favorite from the collection.

Sanders suede wingtip brogues (navy & green)

Colored suede uppers and natural crepe soles - a nice choice for casual spring (and summer) days by British manufacturer Sanders. Pair with a pair of crispy cotton shorts and a pullover shirt.

YMC navy suede laced slip-ons

London-based YMC (You Must Create)takes traditional items and rework them to create something modern, understated and wearable. This pair is a nice example of that.

Sperry Top-Sider dark brown leather boat shoes

Every guy should own a pair of iconic boat shoes. These by Sperry are a good option if still looking for one.

Buttero tan leather low sneakers

I basically could have just taken all Buttero pairs to the list but as the tan leather ones are already a classic - I would start with these. The leather will develop with wear and age beautifully over time.
