Luxury footwear label Oliver Cabell is changing lanes with its latest collection. Inspired by the distressed-sneaker trend championed by GGDB, the new collection features a range of pre-scuffed kicks embellished with that love-worn look straight out of the box. Available in a plethora of colourways in both the Court, Man of Many favourite Low 1, and a new silhouette called the Demi which blends the two best selling profiles and adds a wraparound sole.

Renowned for their expert craftsmanship, luxury materials and minimalist aesthetic, the distressed collection is a conscious move by the Australian fashion house to move towards high fashion. As it stands so far, only a few models are available for immediate dispatch but the more unique and intricate styles are available for pre-order at a discounted rate. The collection represents significant value, especially when you consider that they cost an arm and a leg less than its Golden Goose muse.
Oliver Cabell guarantees a no-two-pairs-the-same distressing which will make your purchase truly unique. Boasting the Italian calfskin leather the brand’s famous for, you’ll find it becomes naturally softer with the selective aging that goes on in the distressing process. A great Golden Goose alternative at a low price, if that doesn’t get you in the mood for some new kicks then I don’t know what will.
