As collaborations go the news that footwear brand Rockport is launching a limited edition men’s collection with Barbour makes sense, pairing up two brands who've made their name combining technology with tradition.
As Barbour is famous for using oilskins in creating their now signature waxed cotton coats, so Rockport has become synonymous with applying athletic technology to classic shoe designs.
The collection will feature three boots (including the Chukka boot pictured above, £150) made from Barbour waxed cotton and heritage tartan lining, and Rockport’s design and hardy construction.
The Rockport & Barbour collection launches this November in stores across the UK
