Extra Butter and Sperry Top-Sider teams up for their first collaboration project, finding inspiration in both brands’ shared affinity for the beach.
Created amidst one of New York’s harshest winters, Extra Butter kept their sights set on the summertime, and for that magic day when the weather warms up and forces us all to rush to the beach! The “Beach Getaway” pack consists of 2 classic Sperry Top-Sider, appropriately nicknamed “Atlantic” and “Sound,” inspired by Long Island’s surrounding shores as a homage to Extra Butter’s Long Island roots.
The “Atlantic” A/O boat shoe features a custom sublimation ocean water print nylon upper mixed with a flecked canvas that looks dipped in sand. The collar lining is printed with what we see when we look up from the sand, the sky and clouds. All laid a shoreline turquoise ice-sole, a subtle but simple feature the elevated footwear head can appreciate. Finished off with an EB Clapboard logo burned on the heel stripe.
The “Sound” Striper pops with a teal toe, heel and tongue rendition of Sperry’s prominent salt-washed canvas, along with the flecked canvas padded upper. We opted for a fun bungee speedlace system, making tying a breeze in between those barefoot excursions. The Striper’s interior has the same custom ocean print seen on the A/O to tie in the collection for what we believe to be the summer essentials for this year on out.
We had the pleasure again of teaming up with Conner Reddan again to produce the video below featuring an original soundtrack by Steve Battline. We also brought in Elena Montemurro to take photos and help with the whole project.
