Greats tapped Nick Wooster for an assist in designing its latest version of the Wooster, the slip-on sneaker named after the menswear icon. Nick turned to Italian fashion house Lardini for the resulting collaboration, featuring one pair in a premium cotton canvas build executed in mismatched olive and khaki, the other in a classic black and white wool houndstooth in similarly mismatched patterns. Each is mounted on an exaggerated Margom outsole, adding a bit more height than Greats’ traditional Margom sole. Rounding out the details is Nick Wooster + Lardini branding on the full veg tan sockliner, along with Greats’ signature bar tack stitch at the heel. Handmade in Civitanova, Italy, the Lardini x Greats Wooster will retail for $280 and is limited to 50 pairs per color. They’ll be available April 13th through Greats’ online store.
