The pick: Oliver Cabell’s understated, versatile sneakers

Handcrafted from buttery Italian calfskin, these uber-versatile, perfectly practical kicks are your new essentials for 2020

You know that elusive line between practical and boring? The inexplicable, undefinable space where something handy, versatile and functional suddenly loses its lustre?

Well we’ve found it. And it turns out it was hiding out in the Marche region of Italy, busy being handcrafted into sneakers from buttery calfskin leather. Equal parts practical and fashionable, these kicks walk this elusive line perfectly. They’re uber-versatile without being boring, and stomp their way around the grey area with cool collected confidence.

In slate grey, Oliver Cabell’s Low 1 trainers are no normal sneakers. They’ll look as good with a suit as they will with your jeans. You could slip them on with tailored separates, sweatpants or even shorts and they’ll still look the part. This is why we’ve decided to make them available on the Gentleman’s Journal eStore — so you too can enjoy them walking tall into 2020.

Once you slip them on — and you really should — you’ll immediately feel the benefit of those durable, lightweight Margom outsoles. And, after you’ve tied your Italian cotton laces, that moulded in-sole footbed will keep your feet in comfort for as long as you’re up and about. So put your best foot forward into the New Year by slipping it into a pair of Oliver Cabell sneakers.
