The Sperry collaboration with Scott Sternberg from Band Of Outsiders continues for another season. The deck boots of last summer sparked a huge trend and this season, the boots are back in a black gingham and I don’t know if it’s me being taken aback by how nice the colourway is in contrast to the colour blocking they did on some of last seasons models, but are the nicest deck boots so far. The penny loafers are also back with an all suede upper, canvas lining and Sperry deck sole. They come either navy, or brown. My favorite piece in the collection is the emerald green deck shoes above. The upper is washed out rough nylon and suede, they have a canvas lining and three eyelets. They are the most beautiful shape, and although deck shoes might be going a bit stale this summer, with Sperry X Band of Outsiders, your feet will look as fresh as anything. All the styles mentioned are available to view in the gallery and are now being stocked by Colette.

I also found this A-Z of summer video using Band Of Outsiders clothes from the Spring 2009 collection, it’s a short, charming motion graphics piece and was made after the creator did an internship with the company.
