You know you’ve made it as an influencer when a luxury fashion label wants to collaborate on limited-run leather sneakers. Footwear label Oliver Cabell has partnered with one of Scandinavia’s favourite Instagrammers Fredrik Risvik for a small batch of white sneakers hand-stitched using full-grain Italian leather. The sneakers are limited to just 100 pairs.
Oliver Cabell had been working with Fredrik for the past 12 months to create this limited sneaker drop. Much like Fredrik’s style, this release, and most of Oliver Cabell’s footwear is pared back, simple, and clean.
“I like to show my audience that quality pieces last,” Fredrik explains.
“I’ve found my niche, which celebrates more classic – you could say, ‘basic’ – pieces, which I wanted this release to represent. I’m really into the idea that I’ll be wearing the same shoes and showing the same looks for years to come.”
Fredrik selected Italian tumbled leather for the upper, sitting on a pair of Margom Kobe outsoles. Following Fredrik’s style, the shoe is minimally branded on the inner lining.
The footbed is constructed from Italian calf-skin over a removable moulded insole. The lining is Spanish cowhide leather, the laces waxed cotton, and the sneakers are hand-stitched and lasted in Albacete, Spain.
Fredrik Risvik was a skater videographer and designer for a skate brand, before finding success as an Influencer. These days, Fredrik is known for his extensive fashion knowledge and style – from shoes to wireless speakers and everything in between. His website and Instagram also feature a heavy dose on interior design.
Oliver Cabell has been on our radar since launching its first limited sneaker drop back in 2018. In 2019, the label relocated production to Spain to keep costs to a minimum, as seen with the recent release of premium leather boots.
