The canvas sneaker—known to heads as the plimsoll—is quite possibly the perfect summer shoe. It’s a shoe that won’t be too bothered by a few drenching runs through the surf and roughly the polar opposite of the stomping winter work boots you may or may not be wearing right now.

So naturally, we’re always on the lookout for the newest model. This one comes from ur-chav Fred Perry, arriving on the site next week. It’s about as classic as they come—based on an archival model from the 50s—which makes it a less adventurous alternative to flashier plims like these. (For the record, we have a pair, and they’re awesome.) Either way, it’s something to look for once your boots go into storage.
