H?Katsukawa, Tokyo Silkprint Collection

hkatsukawa_fall_2011_01
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 for the dapper man, the Tokyo Silkprint Collection has derbys and...

Clarks Original Desert Boots in Slate Blue

Posted by

ronnie_fieg_slate_blue_2011_01
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 here, leaving these both denim-friendly and a pal to well-worn casual pieces. The...

Red Wing Chukkas

red_wing_chukka_boots_03
Give me chukkas, year-round. For all the pseudo "outdoorsy" pieces I see on the websites I visit, there are some items that I can imagine actually wearing to do stuff. I have a hunting-trapping-fishing side of the family that rarely puts their seal of approval on things, but I know that they'd like the clean lines of these Red Wing chukkas in warm leather and leather laces. In fact, these could...

jil_sander_memphis_999_01-horz
On the right snappy dresser, these pink-soled shoes could be out of this world. Jil Sander's bright Memphis 999 shoes are pictured here in black and vivid pink, admittedly not everyone's go-to colorway, but still a pick that isn't without merit. Think pop art, avant garde, fresh designers, street art, London, funky suits, and conversation-worthy hats, and your mind will start whirling with...

Could you pull these off? They're a challenging summer shoe style, but the pre-Memorial Day and post-spring span always leaves me wishing and wanting more light colors in my collection. These Generic Surplus "Dury" shoes are so dapper that they're worth the plunge, although matching gets decidedly trickier. Generic Surplus's shoes are fashioned from fine, sleek canvas with a leather sole, and...

At Oki-Ni: Mr. Hare King Tubby in Salmon, Flag Shirt

Posted by

Band_Of_Outsiders_Flag_01-horz
Another Mr. Hare King Tubby shoe to stare at on Oki-Ni, just in time for S/S 2011 lounging. The King Tubby from Mr. Hare has gone through a few adjustments since the beginning of the year, with a switched-up silhouette to make them more "creeperish," as Hare himself put it. They are slightly higher and have extra durability built in in the way of a rubber heel insert. Salmon skin uppers are...

The Air Newport Slip-on From Cole Haan
Give me a comfortable pair of slip-on shoes anytime - especially now that temperature is beginning to rise. If the slip-ons also happen to be super cool-looking, as is the case with the Air Newport from Cole Haan, all the better.

Stussy x Ransom by Adidas Originals Plain CS

Posted by

stussy_ransom_collab_01
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 are much more pleasing to the eye, aren't they?

New Balance Horse Hair 01
Horse hair rarely seems so appealing, especially when combined with anything that toes the athletic line. These New Balance M575 Horse Hair sneakers are fashioned in a blinding white and light caramel blend, and have thin white laces as a nice contrast to all that texture. Some of this fur has been shorn down for more depth along the front uppers, while the New Balance "N" gets a little...
