Starbuck offers backers exclusive and unique offerings for supporting the documentary. View the KickStarter campaign, here.

GREATS | The Wooster

Named after menswear influencer Nick Wooster, Greats’ take on an understated icon grants a familiar silhouette a new, uncommon luxury.

The slip-on’s journey starts in Civitanova, Italy (know in the trade as “shoe valley”), when handsome Margom soles are mated with luxurious uppers lined in full-grain calfskin leather.  Sound familiar? It should.  Every fashion house offers footwear with the same pedigree.  Wooster wouldn’t have it any other way.

Thanks to the calfskin lining and plush footbed, the Wooster is comfortable with or without socks.  Cropped pants are optional.

Available | May 25, 2015

Customers can sign up at to receive early access on May 21, 2015 at 12:00 PM

Price | $149

Colors | Cadet, Blanco, Cargo, Nero and Nimbus
