In our first season with Australian label Vanishing Elephant we chose three footwear options that we think are perfect for the season, along with two colourways of their outstanding Fair Isle socks.
The Verndale Derby is a classic plain toe shoe that deserves a place in anyone's wardrobe. The orange tone of the Brown Goat version make them a natural pairing for raw denim, while the White Suede looks great with just about everything, including shorts. Rounding things out is the Vednais Desert Boot in Black Suede. This sleek chukka takes a familiar silhouette and dresses it up a bit with a leather sole and slight heel.
Patterned socks are the accessory of the season, and none seem to be in higher demand than the elusive Fair Isle. Vanishing Elephant has made up two of the better colour combinations we have ever seen, so you can't go wrong with either pair. VE socks will be available online later this week.
