LIMITED EDITION Collaboration – Authentic Military and Outdoor fabrication.

“We are proud to introduce the SECOND part of our product collaboration with Los Angeles based Gourmet Footwear. This shoe is made with authentic ‘dead-stock’ U.S. Army twill circa the early 70’s. This is the second half of the “Utility Project” and it’s dubbed “Kilgore”.

An illustrated example of streetable looks vs. vintage dead-stock fabrication. The “Kilgore” Army features decades-old US. Army twill circa the late 70?s. This fabric is military grade and has a beautiful deep dark forest green color that you will not find many other places…it pairs supremely with dark selvedge denim or khaki chinos…comes with a limited edition shoe bag and custom packaging…a fine mix of street, vintage, and luxury. A few left here.

The inside footbeds feature a bright orange pop color for your viewing pleasure. The outer shell upper is super clean and you can dress it up or dress it down….”drek” as it were.

This particular style is my favorite Gourmet model, the Cinque, it pairs great with dark selvaged denim or your favorite pair of sweats. The inside features an athletic style lining and the shoes are packed in a limited edition shoe bag that sets this entire package off with class. This is an example of a shoe collaboration gone right.

First come, first served.” – Lugwig Van
