A good canvas pump is having a bit of a renaissance at the moment (again), mainly thanks to the success of Converse in the skateboarding world. The Irvine T is K-Swiss’ offering to that market and it’s been a favourite of our for a while now since the UNDFTD collab back in 2010 (for some reason the shoe was called the Duece back then), not getting enough love from the brand in my opinion.
Oi Polloi have dug through the K-Swiss archives to bring this lesser known classic back to the limelight. It’s a marmite shoe thanks to the rubber toe – you’re either going to love it or hate it. Oi Polloi have kept the colour palettes traditional tennis with a white upper, off-white midsole, gum toe cap and hits of either blue or red on the heel and branding, pulled directly from the K-Swiss logo.
The Oi Polloi x K-Swiss Irvine T is available now from Oi Polloi for £55 a pair.
