Stussy x Ransom by Adidas Originals Plain CS

Are these worthy of your wardrobe? I’m impressed. Ransom by Adidas Originals got together with Stussy to make the Plain CS Stussy shoes in royal blue, black, and tan. They don’t have a lot of bells and whistles, but that’s all right by me after seeing those odd backwards flipped-around shoes from Kazuki Kuraishi. These … Continue Reading

Would You Wear It? Navajo Lace-Ups at Oki-Ni

Navajo Lace-Ups at Oki-Ni are a good way to get your kicks (literally?) without planning and executing a complex color scheme with the entirety of your closet. I found them during my weekly online shopping excursion, and I got really into them… but I also have a thing for Native blankets and those super-cool Southwestern … Continue Reading

Clarks Original Desert Boots in Slate Blue

  Ronnie Fieg’s Clarks Originals Desert Boots are great, aren’t they? I can’t get enough of Clarks–like a lot of people out there, to be honest–and the slate blue ones are a good choice when it comes to bridging the gap between blacks/greys and colors for shoes. Matching slate blue laces are the finishing touch … Continue Reading

H?Katsukawa, Tokyo Silkprint Collection

  Luxury shoes always fall on the side of “buy,” but the shopping list would get too lengthy, too fast if we really planned on getting every single pair we saw. However, the H?Katsukawa Tokyo Silkprint Collection might be something that you actually want to track down, budget for, beg for, whatever suits your fancy. Certainly … Continue Reading

The different formalities of shoes

  As with much of menswear, there exists a sliding scale of the formality of footwear that the obsessive can get caught up in if he so chooses. I think this is generally to sacrifice the beauty of personal expression to the uniformity of correctness – a correctness that doesn’t exist today and, much to … Continue Reading

Yohji Yamamoto’s Slip-On Sneakers

  I’m not sure how I feel about these shoes, but they are good for kicking around if nothing else. I think they’re stale for Yohji Yamamoto, especially with the colorway and upper style of this sort. There’s an unfinished seam along the tongue of the shoe that leaves it looking unfinished or rough somehow, … Continue Reading

Rag & Bone Debuts Spring/Summer Collection

  We dig a casual-though-still-kinda-upscale loafer or sneaker that goes with just about our entire wardrobe. The new collection from rag & bone definitely fits the bill; the fashion design house recently launched their Spring/Summer 2011 collection, which includes some terrific shoes, including a pair of low top sneakers, the classic leather loafer, the Truro … Continue Reading

Adidas Originals Kazuki Kuraishi ZX Moc

  Adidas Originals’ Kuzuki Kuraishi ZX Moc aren’t the most beautiful shoes I’ve seen, but I feel like I’ve gotten a peek in the middle of a design process or at an unfinished prototype, and that excites me. Japanese designer Kuraishi dug deep to come up with a hybrid design that goes from white in … Continue Reading

Casual, yet plenty urbane, the shoe marries modern technology with classic style; this comfy, easy slip-on loafer can go top of the list for ideal weekend wear or traveling. The sole of … Continue Reading
