A little fall footwear for you? Gourmet's 2009 looks for autumn are super stylized and pared down, with clean soles and good details at the ankles, including straps and geo cutouts.

Givenchy Spring/Summer 2010 Men's Accessories

Posted by

Givenchy Men 01
This Givenchy Spring/Summer 2010 accessories collection is one that's tempting to throw to the wolves in a duke-it-out-amongst-yourself attempt. While bags and cuffs were striking and tough, the gladiator sandals and shoes were more of an acquired taste. Can you dig these manly, heavy sandals, or are they rubbing you the wrong way? Inquiring minds want (no, need) to know. [via coute que...

Posted by

New Clae AW 2009 7
Tasty new Claes for the picking--which ones will you be buying? Delivery 2 of the new Clae Fall 2009 brings about an interesting forest green pair complete with upper strap, suede jobbies in red, and even woolen Russell ones with leather upper detailing in two colorways. Some feature decorative topstitching, others look a little more rustic or retro-inspired. [via TBR]

PF Flyers Astor Holiday 2009

Posted by

Astor Flyers 1
The Astor Flyers 2009 were designed with a minimalistic sole, but are paired with an interesting metallic bend and heavy-duty foot strap. Ribbed tongue and panels give these high-tops a slightly more moon-walkerish appearance. Quilted textile/nubuck uppers feature leather-laced and hooked closures, and you should consider buying two pairs if you want that white sole to stick around. It's going...

Nike Sportswear Challenger Sneakers

Nike Sportswear Challenger 1
The Nike Sportswear Challenger is part of Nike's vintage running collection and will take you back years--even if you weren't wearing them the first time they came around. Before air units came into play and things got high-tech, these green suede Sportswear Challengers, available at Colette, were kicking up the dirt. Fun and retro. [via hypebeast]

PAM x Forfex Spaceboot Sneakers

Spaceboots 2009 Sneakers 2
A fluffy, pumped-up PAM x Forfex boot offers new colorways in both a white/grey/tan mix and a bold black and white with a familiar silhouette. With extra-long laces arcing across the front of the shoe and zipping towards the back, these beautiful ones are tempting from the get-go. Bar lace holes give a clean but well-styled effect.

Asics GEL Lyte Speed Sneakers

Posted by

Asics Gel Lyte 01
Asics got color happy with the GEL Lyte Speeds in several new colorways, including a very successful pair with red, yellow, and black uppers and a traditional two-tone sole. Definitely willing to make friends with jeans and casual trousers, these Asics GEL Lyte Speeds are also modeled in two blue-dominated colorways, one with white and another with black added. Which one's for you? [via...

Taka Hayashi X Vans No Quarter LX

Large white sole for...

Posted by

DC Shoes Admiral 1-tile
DC has trotted out their newest Life Collection for Fall 2009, complete with a new concept site for their release. Looking similar to Supras, the DC Shoes Life Collection has details in all the right places, and an enviable deep blue option alongside the grey. Bronze sneaks in with plaid on the uppers, and cool pentagonal lace holes finish off the look. Low tops complete the collection. [via...

Supra for The Palms Hotel Skytop Sneakers

Supra for the Palms Hotel Skytop 01
Supra used their Skytop to play with The Palms inspiration in 23 exclusive pairs of classic shoes. The mostly-white kicks have touches of lime and lavender to follow the hotel's color scheme. This style, released over 4th of July weekend, is a smart little way to get styling for collectors and those in the market for a new pair of shoes. What do you think? [via hypebeast]

Mark McNairy for Bass Weejuns Footwear Collection

Posted by

Mark McNairy for Bass Weejuns 01
Mark McNairy joined forces with Weejuns to add plenty of refined style to the from-Maine mix: it's casual, comfortable footwear with a nice hint of elegance amongst the hard-wearing browns and long-wearing leather and suede. Dark blue gets a special treatment with white accents, while chunky tassels make a few of these loafers extra special. I dig those navy blue and two-tone uppers. [via...

Adidas Micropacer Soles and Stripes

Posted by

Adidas Micropacer Soles and Stripes 01
The Adidas Micropacer Soles and Stripes originally made the news in 1984: it was the first running shoe kitted out with a "mini computer" along the front. Now one of the most popular shoe silhouettes ever produced, this striped version has been reduced 50% for Adidas' 60 year anniversary. With that kind of price, Sneaker Freaker pointed out, you might as well buy two. We concur! This fiesty...

Nike Air Zoom Talache 1 Mid Black Royale Collection

Posted by

Nike Air Zoom Talache 1 Mid Black Royale 01
The Nike Air Zoom Talache pares down tumbled black leather footwear for the minimal-loving types. No swoosh on these glossy beauties, which is an interesting choice in combination with the white soles. Nike's certainly done this pair well, without dumping on the details, and shoe enthusiasts are whispering that this pair of shoes are the next classic pick. [via slamxhype]

Puma x Ducati Paginale II

Posted by

Puma X Ducati 1
Puma and Ducati got together to craft a racing sneaker with speed on the brain. The Paginale II has a neat see-thru sole with the Ducati engine structure highlighted in fire engine red. The racing seat pattern plus all that undercarriage madness means that a pair of these shoes simply must sneak their way up onto a display case, ASAP. Buy two to collect? Maybe in your dreams; they're running...

Blackstone R390 Brouge

Posted by

blackstone brouge 3
The Blackstone R390 sounds like a laptop style with that model number, but it's actually a fairly simple brouge fashioned in dark brown. Even though you can sneak these into any casual event, the fine detail in the leather uppers (which are quite soft and have a great patina) will blend in with more formal options in a pinch. Cow skin lining. [grandshoes]

Nike Air Max 90 Yellow Croc Skin

Posted by

Nike Air Max 90 Yellow Croc 1
Need to get your shoe collection up to speed for summer? This vibrant yellow Nike Air Max 90 looks more than a little artistic in a cool croc finish with black outsoles. Self-colored stitching adds textur and interest right where it's needed, and this shoe also features several spots of textured labeling for the Nike Air Max 90 tabs at side and back. Super sunny.
