Rivieras | Leisure Shoes

Some more summer goodies for you this evening, this time in the footwear department with some rather classy and cool looking slip-ons.

The refined Riviera gent’ style that struck a chord in the 1960’s film ‘Purple Noon’ and its remake; ‘The Talented Mr. Ripley’, has never felt more current with the latest collection of premium slip-ons by Rivieras. Their timeless design has endured due to its classic simplicity, lending an air of upmarket class to the simplest of shapes. The versatile slip-on shoes exude the sense of off-duty luxury, which has no doubt attracted leading stockist such as Mr Porter, Liberty's and Start, to name a few.

Handmade in Spain, these quintessential dock side, slip-ons have been reworked time and time again since WWII. Now taking head from Riviera’s original 1950’s deck shoe, the marina inspired footwear has risen to fame once again and sparked recent partnerships with the likes of 'Baartmans and Siegel' at London Collections 'Men’s Fashion Week'. With a nod to Cuban culture, the Rivieras collection perfectly complements refined lightweight tailoring, with a colour pallet of rustic tones alongside muted sandy hues and classic white.

Each pair of Rivieras are crafted with notably high quality materials; featuring a soft towel interior lining and a cushioned nappa-leather inner sole. The outer sole has the durability of a hard wearing shoe, with a heel: rarely seen on footwear of this sort. Rendered in a breadth of shades and enhanced with a combination of textures and advanced fabrics, the latest collection makes Rivieras the ultimate stable to any refined gent’s wardrobe.
