INTERVIEW

Boras meets Florin

September 21

Interview | September 2021

We had a chat with friend of the brand, Boras (@borasification) who recently went away and brought with him our Florin sandals. We asked him just a few questions about his trip, how the sandals were and some ideas of what to wear them with. Make sure to check out his website: https://borasification.com/

Where do you live?

I have the chance to live half-time in Paris and in the French countryside.

Where were you when you took these incredible photos?

I was in Britain (French one :)) in a small village named Plourin. I spent a week to work in an old mill, lost in nature!

How did you discover Grenson?

Maybe 10 years ago when I looked for a pair of brogues. My style is a mix of streetwear and heritage, I didn’t want to wear a classic leather sole, then I discovered the Archie V with their Vibram gum soles. A love story started!

My favourite place to go on a weekend is for sure Le Perche, a small French area near Paris where the nature is really beautiful and peaceful. Green is everywhere and I find my inspiration during my days spent there.

Do you prefer sandals with or without socks?

I would say with! Of course it depends on the weather but I really like the mood with a pair of sock. You can find your own combination and let your creativity speak!

What is it about Grenson sandals that you like?

The X-light gum soles combined with a premium leather on the upper. Something uncommon with sandals, often cheaper. They are also really comfortable and versatile!

Where’s your favourite place to go on weekend?

My favourite place to go on a weekend is for sure Le Perche, a small French area near Paris where the nature is really beautiful and peaceful. Green is everywhere and I find my inspiration during my days spent there.

How would you style these sandals in 3 ways?

Imagine these 3 different ways :

 

Outfit 1. A summer relaxed suit in linen or cotton seersucker in earth tones worn with a soft linen tee tucked in the pants. Some necklaces and the sandals of course. Without socks!

 

Outfit 2. A more fashionable one with a wide pleated pants in black colorway, worn high on waist. A long white shirt and an original pair of (sun)glasses. White or black socks!

 

Outfit 3. Something close to my daily outfit : a used pair of Japanese jeans, a white tee under a military shirt with a camp pattern and a bucket hat. A lot of jewels and the sandals worn with socks tone on tone to put in light the sandals.
