Corduroy: the famous Manchester cloth has been put to pant-stickying use in the latest in Oi Polloi's ongoing series of collaborations; a stunning cord espadrille with Welsh/Spanish post-casual shoe dons Veras. Cord shoes may well be the most Oi Polloi thing ever. They might not be a staple on the racks but they're written throughout its DNA and a proper lost icon of their city.
Made in Spain and an update on the now classic Seville silhouette, the OI POLLOI x VERAS cord espadrilles come in blue, whiskey and sandy/biegey/brown and are available exclusively from Oi Polloi.
Crafted from luxurious brushed cord, sourced from the famous cord-hide cows of Carboneras in Southernish Spain, detailed with rope and wit and finished with raw-hide leather laces and traditional Spanish /Veras quality, they're absolute, instant classics.
To be in with a chance of winning a pair, just answer this Blind Date-esque question in the comments box below. The winner will be picked on Friday 4th April and notified by e-mail.
We all know corduroy makes things better. If you could make something out of corduroy, what would it be and why?
