Anytime, Anyplace with Samuel Hubbard
Apr 17th 2019
An unexpected reinterpretation of the open-air essential.
The Spring/Summer trend report focuses on reimagining classic and retro footwear for a contemporary lifestyle. From the “dad sneaker” to the “tourist sandal,” designers are readapting silhouettes once deemed more functional and practical than fashionable and cutting-edge. Modernized materials and luxe embellishments make their way onto these styles, updating them for sartorial play. Samuel Hubbard’s Anytime shoe—priced at an affordable $225—is a feminine take on the fisherman sandal. This versatile walking companion transitions the silhouette from the trails to the sidewalk, and proves itself ideal for urban adventuring with innovative comfort technology.
Arriving in timeless black and rich luggage tan, the handcrafted Anytime keeps the spirit of its outdoors inspiration in a closed-toe upper shaped by supple, full-grain leather with glove-leather lining the interior for comfort and durability. The style secures via a single ankle strap with an adjustable, pronged buckle. Three sets of forefoot cutouts keep the foot cool and dry, while a triple-density Poron memory foam insole with arch support cushions the underfoot. It removes easily to accommodate your own orthotic to relieve and prevent foot pain. The lightweight, contrast sole is made from a closed cell foam, or XL Extralight®, that lends a sturdy perch platform that moves naturally with the foot thanks to flex grooves cut into the traction-ready tread pattern.
There are many ways to incorporate the Anytime sandal into your personal expression of style. We recommend opting for clean lines and simple shapes that don’t compete against the shoe for attention. Look relaxed, yet pulled together in a silk buttoned-down shirt tucked into a pair of high-waist linen shorts for a backyard barbecue at a friend’s home on the weekend. Accessorize with minimalist earrings and a leather bag to strike the perfect balance between laid-back and chic. Explore Oak Street with your besties in a wide-brimmed straw hat, a tapered jumpsuit with a square neckline, and your go-to tote bag. Take the tan pair with you on an impromptu vacation. A vest top teamed with a belted pencil skirt and an embroidered clutch bag lends a retro aesthetic that translates well on the streets of any sunny European locale. Go for a check-patterned A-line dress and opt for oversized accessories to keep things youthful and fresh at a foreign farmer’s market. No matter where you are in the world, you’ll turn heads in Samuel Hubbard’s Anytime shoe designed specifically for female sensibilities.
