Farewell Footwear’s Fall/Winter 2016/17 season marks an important step for the brand, as this is the first all “Made In Italy” collection. Titled ‘Parasite Planet’, the offering sees a technical upgrade on the brand’s products thanks to the collaboration with Italian company Vibram that makes branded rubber outsoles for footwear.
Hiking hubris espadrille soles are wrapped with empty polypropylene climbing ropes in multicolor and military. The unisex uppers match both the mountaineering outdoor and call for a relaxed mood.
There is a newborn ‘weekend’ side of the collection built on a Vibram Vi-lite compound comando sole aiming to offer lightness and durability. British fancy college uppers and lace up loafers, mary janes and chelsea boots complete the line; all equipped with a special survivor accessory, like paracord laces, nylon backpack buckles and cartridge straps.
