The Most Expensive Men's Shoes | In a time when most large shoe brands have outsourced their labor, a handful of boutique shoe craftsmen have remain committed to the quality and care of an expert touch.  While some may opt for a $20 pair of mass produced shoes at Target, there are others who appreciate the work of a true craftsman.  When it comes to the craft of shoe making,...

nike-air-max-90-current-tz-grid-pack-2
These two new Nike Tier Zero kicks, coming out next month, have captured our interest with their rather sleek ways. Instead of plain ol' white or a (now typical) patent leather, we get two different grid patterns and a great hybrid sole. Made with an ultralight upper, they're suited for sport or just for bouncing,and what's more is you can pick up the Grid Pack including both the Air Max 90 CT...

This fall, hit the bricks with Vans new faux-crocodile kicks. Three new pairs of the Sk8 Hi Lx sneakers round out the brand’s Fall 2009 Collection. Part of the company’s premium Vault line, the shoes are a step or two towards flashy, and come in three bold colors (light tan, black-and-white and ruby red) with the faux-croc skin uppers.  What would you rock these puppies with?  Give us a...

Nike Air Max ST Retro

Posted by

nike-air-max-st-retro-1
These are about as "acquired taste" as you can get, and as retro as you can find without tipping the ugly scales. Nike has been dredging up lost shoe styles from bygone times, including this crazy Nike Max ST from 1992. All-white, very old school, and much appreciated in our sneaker collections, it can be yours this time around (again). Air and footbridge tech continue that Nike style,...

nike-air-max-90-current-flywire-01-600x305
Shoes so hot you're almost afraid to touch them: that's the new Nike Air Max 90 Current for you. You still get all the technological advantages of the original, like a lightweight feel and a free sole, but you also get spoiled modern-style with a detailed, patterned upper complete with the traditional bold swoop. Shall it be cherry red or midnight black? Head to Nike shops next month and pick...

stubb-supra-skytop-bbq-1
In honor of South by Southwest this year, Stubb's BBQ in Austin, Texas has made up a commemorative collector's pack of special Skytops in a rich brown, a bottle of Original barbecue sauce from Stubb's, an apron, and a rather handy stamped wooden case. You can pick it up at Stubb's tomorrow (Friday) from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m., 801 Red River Street. I have a feeling that there will be a few...

Posted by

nike-royal-hi-low-white-1
These tasty Nike Air Royals give you a heaping helping of retro with an updated new vibe. A fun perforated Nike swish style comes emblazoned on both the high and low looks, but what makes us really grin from ear-to-ear is that clean white upper to match with a number of fresh spring styles. Don't forget to make sure your dark denims have been washed a couple of times before you sling these on:...

Creative Recreation DiCoco Sneakers in Malibu Black

Posted by

dicocoi-tile
Creative Recreation sneakers are a stylish high top selection that has a certain, shall we say, "natural glow." Shine is more like it-- this new addition to the Tobi shop is available in a bright leather that's slightly mesmerizing in its patent finish. Bright blue details make things all the more striking, and this is one color combination that hasn't been overdone. Here's to a fresh start...

Double Identity Apron Sneaker

Posted by

doubleapron1_large-tile
Despite the unfortunate name of "Apron Sneakers" (shudder), these black soft-shoe glories from Oak are a cut above the rest. Unlike your usual boat shoe/driving moc permutation, this black suede version features hip details and findings like a harness band across the toe, laceless opening with faux lace holes, and shiny leather touches around seams. Available in sizes 42-45, and going fast....

Black Leather Floppy Sneaker

Posted by

333floppy1_large-tile
It's confusing at first trying to figure out how exactly these classify as sneakers at Oak, but apparently they are "boot inspired" with a more active fit and effect. Even if you still don't get it, what you will get is a sense of relief on those tired post-weekend feet, what with that black rubber sole, padded foot bed, and soft ankle construction. Sizes 9-13 with a zip closure have quite a...

Belstaff Jair High Man Black Leather Sneakers

Posted by

belstaff3-horz
With all those artificially pumped-up, strapped high tops around, it's amazing we can get anything else these days. Sure, they are gorgeous, but sometimes our retro sensibilities just want to take over and burst forth!  Enter the Belstaff Jair High Mans, available at ssense, which feature a gummy leather upper that looks almost rubber-like in its thick, glossy glory. Antiqued findings,...

Swear Iggy Hi Black Wingtip Shoe

Posted by

photo37114-horz
Wingtips. . . in sneaker form? Pure genius! These high-cut leather sneakers from Swear Iggy at Ssense have a dress-shoe effect with paneling, except that with these ones, you're getting a softer sole, a more jeans-friendly shape, and an overall seasonless effect that works wonders on the most boring of outfits. Bubble ribbing at the ankles means cushy comfort with minimal effort. Sizes 40-45....

Swear Gene 3 Black Mid Sneaker

Posted by

photo37053-horz
These are some pretty sexy shoes, if I do say so myself! Smooth grain leather bumps up against a shiny patent panel complete with strong perforations and tone-on-tone stitching to let the craftsmanship stand out. Available at ssense, these will pop against a ground of dark denim and slouchy hoodies, or perhaps something a little more refined for good contrast. Potential collector's item in...

Nike Sportswear S/S 2009

nike-sportswear-cortez-1
We're a little Cortez Crazy after checking out Nike's S/S '09 shoes paired with their cooler-than-thou Rocstar collection, and Highsnobiety was smart enough to crop the images for easy shoe gazing! Electric colors go with more than black trousers and... hammer pants, so take a good look at these almost bowling-inspired two-tones and highlighter yellow kicks to develop some modern looks that...

maryna-linchuck_msp6
When scanning the web for today's hot model to cover on StyleCrave, we came across a high-style editorial of the leggy, the lovely Maryna Linchuck.  To put these posts together, we like to share a few things about the model-- her home country, a story about her career, an anecdote about what makes her special.  Unfortunately, model Maryna Linchuck is a complete mystery.  No details on her...

Common Projects Suede B Ball High Top Sneakers

_dsc0037_full-horz
These ultra-classics have a sleek and slim style that's tempting because they're a far cry from all the bells-and-whistles, cherry red, super-shiny kicks we've been seeing. . . just about everywhere! With a truly high top and minimal stitching, you're putting your best foot forward undisguised. Padding at the sides and top makes Common Projects our hero-- they've pared down the outer details,...

supra-ns-spring-2009-group-3
Supra surprises with a spring 2009 collection in three distinctive heats: one in bright and shiny cherry, one in a dull bronze, and another in a rich gray with an almost dusty effect. Take your pick between strapped-up selections in all three colors, or two variations on the high-low top effect complete with upper perforations, fancy vamps and premium leather uppers. Good luck trying to pick...
