If you haven’t already switched out the shell Cordovan for canvas, here’s all the reason you need: the Beresford canvas plimsoll from Fred Perry’s Olympic capsule collection, the Champion’s kit—a study in classic tennis whites. They dug into the archives for a classic model based on the tennis shoes they were making for athletes back in the ’60s and ’70s—giving them a timeless look—with a stripe of color down the heel to represent the Olympic rings.

We’re declaring them Kempt’s favorite summer shoe… for now, at least.
