How Much Time Do You Have?
Levi’s Field Boots in Grey
Just about the coolest hybrid sneaker-boots I’ve seen in a while. 
Muted colors work well for any look you put together, and these guys mix the rugged aesthetic of the great outdoors with the finer details of an urban sneaker, and they have some unique leather detailing thanks to those Jeans Heavyweights out on the westcoast. Get em while you still can.

Levi’s Field Boots in Grey

Just about the coolest hybrid sneaker-boots I’ve seen in a while. 

Muted colors work well for any look you put together, and these guys mix the rugged aesthetic of the great outdoors with the finer details of an urban sneaker, and they have some unique leather detailing thanks to those Jeans Heavyweights out on the westcoast. Get em while you still can.

            Outlier, the creators of finely tailored performance wear, from the international hipster outpost of Williamsburg is on point in collaboration with those skateboard-turned-lifestyle designers out in California, Vans OTW. What could have been a clash of the coasts resulted in a brilliant meeting of the minds. Using the urban Bedford design as the canvas, Outlier imparts their classic muted color schemes with a stormy slate-grey upper created from the super-breathable, water-resistant, windproof Supermarine cotton. Cutting through the middle of this storm-cloud grey is a lighter contrast of premium grey suede paneling traversing from the heel to the tongue. You get the usuals in the vulcanized rubber outsole and Vans tagging on the side – but sure enough the tongues sport the Outlier Blackswan on the right, and the Supermarine airplanes on the left.

            Whether it’s a face-off with the sidewalk, boardwalk, skate-park, or Berry Park these kicks are ready. Wear ‘em with jeans, khakis, NYCO SLIMS, or the NEW OGs; these sneakers can do it all. Just don’t sleep on these guys, they drop August and are sure to be cleaned out quick.

Cole Haan - LUNAGRAND Chukkas

When Cole Haan launched their Lunagrand wingtips they were a revolution, these chukkas are slick, but with a down-to-earth sole

Barker Black shop NYC

Interesting presentation with the shoe shaper as the stand.
As always, finding ways to uniquely modernize classic styles is a sign of great design.

Harry’s of London - Wingtip Oxfords, Dark Brown

A very nice modernization of the classic style. The stitching is clean and simple, and the cap-toe features no extra detailing you would usually see on a wingtip, its very modern, but i like it.

Red Wing Boots - 6” Black Classic Moc

These are simple, clean boots. The lines are not bulky, and the boots don’t look chunky. They are slim, and sturdy, and ready to walk the city. Just found a pair of these at a local consignment shop in the East Village for $45.00…that’s a steal, and they fit and feel great. 9Sharp

Top: Junya Watanabe - Wingtip Sneakers

Bottom: Generic Surplus - Wingtip Sneakers

Those Junya Watanabe sneakers are sharp, clean lines, simple stitching, and the red insole is an incredible detail. Still, they probably run at least a few hundred dollars, likely more. On the bottom are a pair of Generic Surplus Wingtips (I own the same pair in tan). They are super comfortable, basics, clean, crisp, and have lasted over a year. Save the money - the style is just as great.

Folk Joe. Blue Suede, with Tan leather detailing at the lace and back. Sole is lined with leather detailing. Great night out sneaker/shoe.
