(OT) a salute to the admiral

February 3, 2009


Ten-hut: Our ears perked up when we caught wind of this new collaboration between DC Shoes and Lemar & Dauley on the former’s Admiral shoe. The collab shows what happens when you take an urbanite and move ’em to a tranquil nautical setting.

Having done time on water ourselves — club rowing back in the day (bow seat!) — we have a soft spot for the 80’s regatta wind sail print adorning the side of the sneakers. It’s finished with some contrasting black and white uppers, representing the dockside serenity and the energy of car horns and massive crowds. L&D’s trademark houndstooth print makes an appearance on the tongue; the Braille’s a nice touch (though I’m not sure what it says…).

Buy: Lemar & Dauley, Admiral, $150,
