Oi Polloi’s Cottonopolis Take on the Sperry Topsider CVO

Oi Polloi in-house label Cottonopolis give chunky sole footwear a go, taking on the Sperry Topsider CVO. “When Sperry first got on the blower to say they wanted to make some shoes together, our minds raced. We needed razor-cut soles for heightened yacht-deck purchase, we needed leather linings for sensual sans sock comfort and, perhaps most importantly, we needed colours sharper than a Toto drum-beat.” So, we have two takes on this classic bit of nautical kit: clean white with navy trim and ‘Blue Molly’ with navy trim. Both excellent choices. While Wakouwas are still a pain to get hold of, these will do very nicely indeed. Fingers crossed for a brown/black, white/black combo some time in the future. Find them both here.
