Contemporary English shoemaker Harrys of London, known for its super-soft loafers, and venerable Savile Row tailor Gieves & Hawkes, maker of traditional tailored clothing and military uniforms, are not exactly simpatico brands. Nevertheless the two iconic British companies formed a partnership: Harrys is producing a collection of comfort footwear to complement the suitmaker’s expanding line of tailored sportswear.

The shoes, including soft-sided Dwight desert boots and classic Bryce penny loafers, are made of pliable South African kudu antelope suede and incorporate a number of technical attributes, among them a patented Technogel innersole and a contoured Vibram rubber outer sole collectively designed to deliver a superior level of comfort and arch support.  The co-branded shoes, which were introduced in May in celebration of Gieves & Hawkes’ newly restored flagship at 1 Savile Row, are made in two colors (blue and brown) and priced from approximately $416 to $515. Along with the tailor’s new dress shoe collection, which is produced by bespoke shoemaker Poulsen Skone, the Harrys sport footwear is available exclusively through Gieves & Hawkes stores. Additional styles will be introduced this fall. (+44.20.8335.2708, www.gievesandhawkes.com)
