The new sailcloth CVO sneakers are made from sails which have been used by competitive sailors, including members of the US Sailing Team.
The new range of sailcloth sneakers are the result of a collaboration between the boating shoe manufacturer, Sperry, and Barneys New York.
Each pair of CVOs is unique.
The upper is made out of recycled sails used by some of the world’s top competitors including members of the US Sailing Team and elite college athletes.
As a result, each pair of these limited edition shoes will also vary in colour, pattern and stitching.
These distinctive shoes include brown rawhide laces and a cork footbed for extra cushioning.
Intended for use both aboard and ashore, the rubber vulcanised soles feature Sperry’s trademarked, razor-cut Wave-Siping™ traction for superior grip in wet or dry conditions.
The shoes are priced at $125.
The Sperry Sailcloth CVO sneakers can be bought for a limited time only at the Barneys website or in Barneys New York outlets.
Orders placed online will be fulfilled with one of the styles available.
