The classically Americana brand Tanner Goods is one that thrives on collaborations. In the past year, the brand has built partnerships with the likes of Martenero (on a limited edition “Ace” pilot watch) and with 3sixteen & Pendleton (for a line of wool overshirts destined to be every lumberjack hipster’s dream). For its latest collaboration, Tanner Goods has turned to Maine-based brand Rancourt for a sneaker that epitomizes the concept of “premium leather.”
Which is to say that the brands have created a 100% leather sneaker titled the “Court Classic Low.” To find the materials for the shoe, Tanner Goods enlisted the aid of Horween for a batch of Natural Essex leather (the same used in last year’s collaborative PF Flyers in an Indigo Horween). Horween also contributed a Casco horsehide lining, all of which sits atop a Honey Strighton Vibram outsole. Accents of antique brass can be found studded for decor across the sneaker, and the Tanner Goods branding appears on the tongue of the shoe. And keeping in line with the brand's Americana vibe, the entire shoe was 100% made in Maine. The “Court Classic Low” is exclusively available through Tanner, but before you run for your credit card, know that the brand has only made an incredibly limited 80 pairs of the sneaker. Premium leather ain’t for just anybody you know.
Look out for the Tanner Goods x Rancourt Classic Low sneaker to go on sale on Tanner Goods' online store today, August 25.
