For autumn 2008 gram and Our Legacy join forces to recreate and reinterpret a classic – the plimsole. This joint venture, named 378g combines a sleek oxford cut with soft white calf leather and waxed Millerain fabric in shades of khaki and navy. Available right now in select stores carrying the Our Legacy collection and also gramstore.com.
It was late November 2007 when gram and Our Legacy got together regarding a possible collaboration. The idea was to use a typical plimsole shape but instead of doing it as cheap as possible it was decided that this should be conceived without compromise. One single low top style was born, dressed in three different guises – Supple white calf leather offering an absolute premium sneaker for the true connoisseur, and two different tones of waxed cotton canvas, straight from British Millerain in Lancashire, the official supplier of Barbour. To round off the package each pair comes with individual shoe bag, shoe horn and brush.
“We like the idea of two smaller brands banding together to create something special. Each bring their own unique perspective and expertise to the table, which basically means you get the best out of everybody. The end result I think speaks for itself.” – Jockum Hallin, Our Legacy.
