Brooklyn-born footwear brand Greats teams up with Orley for the second time to produce a collection that incorporates key fabrics from the latter’s Autumn/Winter 2015 collection and Greats’ classic fall silhouette, the Royale Chukka. The two brands first worked together in Spring 2015, when Orley created its version of Greats’ Royal sneaker with lush suede, twill, and canvas detailed with hidden grommets and white calf lining. The new lineup now consists of three styles in a variety of patterns and fabrics: Harris tweed, a smooth techno black cotton, and floral brocade. Made in Italy of 100 percent cotton, the techno textile is woven in a way that gives it the feel of a performance fabric, providing durability and a classy touch. The brocade—also made in Italy—mirrors the reverse of the fabric on the Royale Chukka, which is lined in Vachetta calfskin with black waxed cotton laces. Each sit upon a matte black Margom sole. The three new additions to the Greats lineup are ready to take you into the colder months ahead.
