Topo Designs X FRONTEER Super Gratton

Apr 30, 2018

Whether in regard to people, organizations, or businesses – it has long been true that like recognizes like. That certainly is the case with Topo Designs and Fronteer. Both relatively young brands have a passion for making well designed products that serve a real purpose – so it’s exciting to see they’ve gotten together for a collaboration Super Gratton boot.

The shoe features a classic silhouette – essentially a chunkier version of a pair of Chuck Taylors – but with more than a few unique touches. The upper is made from a water resistant suede and canvas fabric, features a medial zipper, patch along the lateral side of the shoe, and a thick heel counter with red marking along the back. The toe-cap and tape is made from a raw sticky rubber while the outsole is made by Vibram for a solid grip whether walking in the city or on the trail. Like most of the projects both Topo Designs and Fronteer take on, the end product has a classic look with a top quality build. You can find both these and a collaboration Topo Quick Pack on Topo’s site.
