CQP or Conversations & Quintessential Products is a fairly new Swedish brand that we believe is a great new addition to our Dayware collection. We’ve brought in the Otium, which is CQP’s take on classic army trainers with asymmetric panels. The construction sets them apart, particularly the sewn (instead of glued) outsole and the leather shank. The Otium is a bit sleeker than most sneakers, and the leather uppers provide some welcome softness. This sneaker looks as great with a pair of chinos as it does with a pair of jeans.
