Yesterday we hailed the return of fanny packs from fashion perdition, now another former faux pas is being revived as well.
That’s what you get when you have collaboration between Teva, the sandal brand, and Woolrich. The pair paired up to offer a new take on socks with sandals. But before you turn up your nose at the idea, their concept is a bit different, even fashion forward.
By combining the socks with sandals, the footwear suddenly gets a longer life right into the winter months. Woolrich has paired wool-blend socks to complement the patterned webbing and colorways of the Original Universal Teva.
“We continue to celebrate the versatility of our iconic silhouette. Like our consumers, the Original Collection comes to life through personalization. Unique collaborations help to expand the freedom that our brand encourages while proving that ‘fashion’ is subjective and can certainly be polarizing,” says Lorie Pointer, director of product and design at Teva.
For those who might need some inspiration to help pull off the #SocksandSandals look, Teva has teamed with stylists Elizabeth Stewart & Kira Sheppard to provide some styling tips that can be found on Teva.com.
The Teva x Woolrich collaboration includes two style options for both men and women: a solid Teva sandal with a printed Woolrich sock and a patterned webbing sandal with a solid Woolrich sock. The sock and sandal combination will be sold – together – starting this week.
Lesson noted: never underestimate the power of resurrection in the fashion industry.
