With spring in the air, we’re getting back outdoors and embracing the coming summer. That means days spent hiking new trails, sailing new waters and setting new trends. It also means weddings, new beginnings and weekend getaways.
This is prime time to ditch your sneakers and invest in a substantial shoe for your everyday adventures in the outdoors or in the city. This doesn’t mean having to forgo style and authenticity, though.
Let us introduce you to our Abington Spring ‘15 Collection.
Inspired by our forefathers in the Massachusetts seaside village of Essex, once the wooden boatbuilding capital of the New World, the Abington Spring ’15 Collection brings together fine leathers and suedes, sailing-inspired details and Vibram® outsoles in unique boot, boat shoe, loafer and chukka styles.
This smart boot is also about substance. The Abington Haley Boot is our stylish boot for guys who love the outdoors, but don’t want to forgo sleek elegance for hardy footwear.
It’s the kind of boot for those who embrace the chance to be spontaneous, whether that means showing up for a last-minute outdoor music gig, an impromptu sailing trip or an evening walk along the waterfront.
The Abington Haley Boot is available in a stand-out Black Quartz with red laces (100 percent recycled PET) or Cognac Quartz with premium suede and organic cotton. Fancy enough for your best friend’s rustic wedding in a converted barn (it is wedding season now, after all), but still casual enough to wear every day.
If you prefer a lower boot with the same style and heritage, our answer is the Abington Ripple Chukka. It looks great paired with a rugged chino or our premium denim, be it for work or a night out.
The best part is you don’t have to worry about these boots falling apart on you or looking ragged for special occasions. True to the tough life these inspirational boat builders led, our Abington Spring ’15 Collection is designed to be durable.
For those who prefer a more casual look, the Abington Haley Chukka boots in Cognac Quartz and Taupe Suede, make for a good match. Every boot and shoe in the collection features Anti-Fatigue Technology, leather footbeds and Vibram® rubber outsoles, so your grip will hold on a variety of terrain.
If you’re less of a boot-man and more of an Oxford kind of guy, our two-toned Abington Ripple Boat Oxfords offer a sophisticated take on the normal boat shoe. We also have the playful Ardelle Plain Toe Oxford, available in off-white suede with black quartz or that signature black quartz with red laces. At home treading the streets of your city or exploring new terrain, the Ardelle Plain Toe Oxford brings boat shoes out of the past and into the future.
Weekends were made for the Abington Ripple Loafers which are crafted with premium suede and are easy to slide on and off, be it to spend the afternoon at your favorite coffee shop, a downtown wander or to head to the patio for some beers.
Built in premium full-grain suede and leather with those Anti-Fatigue Technology leather footbeds and Vibram® rubber outsoles, they’re soft but sturdy enough to endure a lot of exploring.
Isn’t it time you upgraded your shoes to match the adventures, special occasions and good times Spring will bring? We think so.
