After the successful launch of two new footwear styles earlier this month, premium footwear brand Oliver Cabell is debuting a new silhouette next month: the Erving.
The Erving is Oliver Cabell’s handmade take on the cap toe silhouette, one of the most iconic forms in all of sneakers. The shape comes from the first basketball sneakers of the 1920’s and has since become synonymous with American footwear.
However, the Oliver Cabell Erving has been constructed with premium materials including a full grain Tuscan leather upper and supple calfskin lining. According to the brand, the Erving rides atop a pair of Italian 70 Shore A rubber outsoles. Each pair is hand stitched and lasted in Albacete, Spain, and the shoes are tied together with Italian waxed cotton laces.
Set to release on March 6, the Erving will drop in white on OliverCabell.com for $185, keeping the cost of a premium handmade sneaker below $200. On March 13 the Erving will drop in black.
