Dignan isn’t just a name associated with 50 year plans. It’s also about realizing in the here and now that the winter months are hell on your sneaker collection, and the time has come for sneakerheads to be sufficiently aware of traditional fashion so as to take advantage of the vast array of time tested winter-ready boot designs. Gourmet has been ahead of the curve on a variety of these boot-borrowing hybrids, particularly the duck variety, and their latest again pushes the envelope on weatherproof lifestyle kicks. The Gourmet Dignan applies a ripstop nylon shell that’s zipped and then cinched shutatop a sole that looks like it could have come from Nike Running’s Zoom Structure series. It’s one of the most surprisingly outlandish releases of the holiday season, a feel furthered by the unassuming and ever versatile grey and white palette. Check them out in greater detail after the jump, then grab a pair from Gourmet emporiums like Allike.
