We are excited to welcome the Fall/Winter collection of o.X.s Rubber Soul to Black Parrot!
Coming to us straight from Italy, this footwear brand combines luxurious calf leather with timeless Pirelli rubber for a unique and innovative look. With a focus on craftsmanship and attention to detail, each pair of shoes is constructed by hand from start to finish in Piticchio, Italy.
The fusion of leather and rubber together is what o.X.s Rubber Soul values as the "soul" of their operation, as every pair is hand painted slowly with rubber to encase the leather perfectly until it becomes a solid shell.
We love the combination of leather and rubber for it's look as well, these shoes maintain just the right level of edginess without being over the top, and the unique colors are interesting but are neutral enough to be easily paired with anything in our closets.
Finally, we love the point at which fashion meets practicality- especially in footwear. The rubber encasement makes the shoes waterproof, making them perfect for the muck and snowy weather that consumes our climate a good portion of the year. These boots are a welcome excuse to tuck our LL Bean boots away this Winter in favor of something a little more fashionable and (dare we say it?)-- bring on the snow!
Come into the Portland store today to try these on, sizes are going quickly!
