Catching Up With Some Inkerman Osborne’s

Inkerman caught up with some old friends–a pair of three-year-old Inkerman Camel-Suede Osbornes! We wanted to hear about the shoes–where they’d been, and how they’d held up. What we discovered below.


What’s the most exciting place you’ve been in your Osborne’s?

Probably a black sand beach on the Big Island of Hawaii.


Wow, can you tell us about the paint splotches?

Okay–this one I’m not super proud of–I was roped into painting my friend’s apartment–and was caught unprepared in my loafers. Several hours later I was deemed a very good friend, but with paint-splattered loafers. I actually get compliments that my shoes look rustic–so I’ve decided to keep the look.


Any rain storms?

Yep. Definitely got stuck in a couple of those. My Osborne’s have held their own, though.

What does the future hold in store for them?

A Match With Inkerman

Inkerman’s annual Tennis Match took place this June in Watch Hill, Rhode Island. The Inkerman Max made it’s debut, where the durability and breathability of the sneaker was put through its paces!

The Inkerman Max, in Polar White, made a splash on the courts.


The Inkerman Max features a natural rubber sole and a full-grain leather upper.


The Max’s leather upper is semi-perforated–making it ideal for any activity.
The Max maintains a gentle profile while having a lightly tiled tread for versatility.


The game was a smashing success! Catch us next summer for more innovative summer designs.

My Inkerman Story

Two weeks ago Inkerman received a very kind testimony from a happy father who had been gifted a pair of Camel Suede Osborne’s.

“I love my Inkerman’s

They are beautiful, very comfortable with great and equally nicely designed insoles…evidence of close attention to detail

They skate line between kind of dressy and kind of informal hence occasion and outfit flexible, as well as being a shoe for all seasons from summer to winter

Always getting compliments

Cool for a guy my age”
