Acne Plimsoles

“If the shoe fits, wear it!”… Acne Plimsoles

Por Vocacao If you’re anything like us, there’s always a moment when packing your bags to go somewhere, that you stubbornly try to fit the shoes in,
only to find that there’s not enough space left…
Well, if there’s a shoe that fits every suitcase, its the plimsoles. A combination of durable canvas uppers with practical rubber soles, these sneakers have a timeless appeal and can be dressed up or down. Acne knows this and so they came up with their own version for SS10.
The Arch sneaker comes in bleached and washed black denim, four-eye lace up closure and contrasting burgundy leather laces.
So keep in mind… if the shoe fits, wear it!

Hype Beast Two new colorways of Acne’s Plimsoles, for Spring 2010, have arrived at Por Vocacao. Both washed black denim and bleached blue denim versions are shown, each taking on a timeless appeal with practical rubber outsoles and slight Acne branding amongst leather lace decor.

Cardigans & Moccasins

Acne Jaipur Cardigan

The-Glade The soft cotton-cashmere mix of the Jaipur cardigan by Acne is comfortable and pleasant to wear. The cut reminds us of a classic bomber jacket. Perfect for layering on cooler days or as a jacket when it gets warmer.”

Inventory Magazine One of the first pieces to arrive from the Swedish label is this mix between a cardigan and a baseball jacket-type sweater. The cotton-cashmere mix would be nice almost all year around but I think the style of the knit would definitely require a collared shirt underneath. Whether worn as a light jacket or a layering piece, it’s pretty hard to go wrong with most of Acne’s knitwear. I have had a bit of a piling issue with a couple pieces from Acne, but I suppose that’s fairly natural with delicate fabrics and a reasonable amount of wear – which this sweater would surely get.”

Quoddy Canoe Moccasins – $220.00

Inventory Stock Room – “As sleek as the local Wabanaki watercraft. Collar lace threaded through lacquered eyelets allows you to snug it up, but doesn’t compromise the easy-on/easy-off nature of this most capable of slip-ons. Our perfect summer shoes come in peanut grizzly leather and will wear in beautifully through the warm months.”

Quoddy Blucher – $235.00

Inventory Stock Room ” When it comes to hand sewn moccasins Quoddy is the benchmark. Their craftsmen have been making beautiful shoes for a hundred years on the shores of the Passamaquoddy Bay. The Blucher is a nice 3-Hole model with great detailing around the ankle. It’s a more casual, versatile shoe that you can wear from the canoe straight to the pub. Our spring version comes in black chromoxel leather with a honey camp sole.”
