American Trench knows a thing or two about making versatile and hard-wearing gear for the adventurer in all of us, so when it came time for them to want to release a shoe, they teamed up with a company just as versed in the footwear department—none other than Rancourt. If rainy days have got you and your feet feeling blue (and damp), check out these new Ventile Sneakers and take a walk on the drier side.
After spending the last couple of months wearing boots every day, you might’ve wanted to give your feet a break with some lighter weight sneakers. And now you can, without worrying about the rain: these babies are made with a dark navy Ventile Dry canvas with highly durable and water repellent characteristics. In fact, it’s the very same fabric used on AT’s trench coats, if that helps.
Constructed in Maine at the Rancourt factory, these sneaks also feature solid brass eyelets, genuine leather navy laces, custom foam insoles, and Vibram rubber outsoles. And they come in both a low- and high-top version because, well, different strokes for different folks, of course! Look at them, they’re practically begging to be put to the test.
Available for pre-order from $215-$235 at American Trench.
