The story of our Head of Design’s search for the perfect white summer plimsole is one of biblical proportions; a tale of Lord of the Rings-scale drama, travelling and setbacks. A quest that started months ago with the purchase of a smart pair of tan chinos and the insatiable desire to pair them with a white summer shoe. Thankfully, for every-one involved, this month one man’s white plimsole odyssey came to an end with the purchase of a pair of Novesta Star Masters. The shoes, which are still prodiced in their original factory in Partizanske, a small town in the heart of Slovakia, are made from natural rubber and 100% cotton, which makes them a bit more ecologically sound than your average clog. They look great with a pair of chinos too.EJ
