Blackstock & Weber is keeping it dapper all year round with their latest collection. The Black-owned footwear brand has titled their FW21 collection ‘Hoodie Season’—an assortment of fall classics and winter-ready essentials. As a Brooklyn-based brand that designs with a world view, these loafers are made to come along whenever and wherever.
Designer Chris Echevarria founded Blackstock & Weber in 2017 and brought a refreshing perspective to the loafer’s design. As classic as the black-and-white penny style is, Blackstock & Weber proves that loafers can take on different colors and textures and be just as timeless. In the brand’s most recent collaboration with J.Crew, which quickly sold out, B&W created a brown suede style with pony hair on the front panel and constructed it with a leather, chunky sole. Clearly, these are not the usual slip-on shoes reserved only for black-tie events; these shoes spice up formal attire and can also be worn with hoodies and even denim.
The ‘Hoodie Season’ collection is made of slip-on footwear designed with Vibram lug soles, Goodyear construction, and storm welting—making the loafers fully water-resistant.
The Clásico style is offered in onyx black and chocolate brown and is made of pebbled leather and features a tassel. B&W calls their penny loafer The Ellis and this season it is offered in a red bordeaux colorway. The assortment also includes a style designed with hairy suede and a two-toned caramel and coffee suede loafer referred to as The Mason, which both have a hardware buckle detail on the tongue.
‘Hoodie Season’ will be available for purchase starting Oct. 29 at 12 p.m. EST on blackstockandweber.com.
