It comes with a higher legging complete with a thick paracord-like rope that can be wound around the ankle multiple times. The new version still comes with full-grain leather, giving it a really stylish…

NikeLab ACG.07.KMTR

Inspired, believe it or not, by a brown paper bag scrunched around a foot to form a fitted profile, the futuristic-looking NikeLab ACG.07.KMTR foregoes laces, velcro, and any traditional sort of buckle for one that’s decidedly more complex in execution — but is simpler than ever to use. A four-way stretch upper shell is cinched around the top of your foot using an integrated draw cord pulled at the back of the…

Converse Chuck Taylor All Star With Nike FlyKnit

The Chuck Taylor has seen a lot of variations of its form of late. Here’s yet another, and one particularly suited to prolonged wear: the Converse Chuck Taylor All Star With Nike FlyKnit. Nike’s trickle-down tech adorns this sneaker with a FlyKnit upper that’s lightweight, breathable, and snug fitting, not unlike a sock, with more stretch and flexibility than the traditional canvas. It pairs this to a Lunarlon insole to add cushioning and a…

1978 New Balance

Based on the classic 990 that made its debut in 1978, the 1978 New Balance puts a modern, minimal spin on the major design elements it dredges up from the past. The USA-made sneaker pairs a pig suede upper to a tapered Vibram outsole that’s both durable and grippy across a range of surfaces. Available colorways include navy suede with tan, burgundy with dark grey, and black with grey (shown), each with a…

Under Armour ArchiTech Futurist Sneaker

Its radical looks may evoke far-off concepts that never come to fruition, but the Under Armour ArchiTech Futurist Sneaker will actually be available for sale in just a few days later this month. The shoe combines a foot-hugging UA SpeedForm upper with a compression lace system with 1/4 zipper and a stunning 3D printed midsole in the form of a dynamic lattice network that’d be pretty much impossible to produce in any other…

Ace Marks Handcrafted Italian Dress Shoes

Splurging on a pair of quality handcrafted Italian dress shoes is typically a wise investment for reasons beyond aesthetic: comfort and longevity come to mind. And further reducing the investment side of the equation only makes for a sweeter deal. Each pair of Ace Marks dress shoes are expertly made in Italy by fourth-generation craftsmen — the same people producing other, store-bought luxury brand shoes that retail north of $600 — for…

Nike Zoom Vaporfly Elite

The human body is capable of some amazing things. But a two-hour marathon is essentially off the table, unless you’ve got a pair of Nike Zoom Vaporfly Elite strapped on your feet (and a hell of a lot of training behind you). They’re particularly lightweight at just 7 ounces and boast a thick foam sole that, unlike low profile runners, cushions and also returns some of the energy on…

Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Modern Lux

Distinctly a Chuck Taylor but also a couple of notches more upmarket than the classic white and black sneaker, the Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Modern Lux comes in monochromatic all-white or all-black colorways. Instead of canvas it’s made of supple, molded leather and instead of heavy rubber there’s a lightweight Phylon outsole (think running shoes), boosting comfort while also helping these kicks better blend. The latter which is…

Cole Haan Zerogrand Stitchlite Wingtip Oxford

Their fusion of a running shoe-derived outsole and a leather upper gave Cole Haan one of the comfiest dress shoes around. Their Cole Haan Zerogrand Stitchlite Wingtip Oxford kicks it up another couple of notches with a new single-piece of stretch knit material that’s lighter, more breathable, and offers better lateral stability. The shoe’s flex outsole mimics the natural motion of the foot just as well and rubber pods at the…

Duke & Dexter Loafers

The words quality and loafers needn’t be mutually exclusive, and Duke & Dexter’s Loafers are a living example of this. For one, each shoe is both designed in London and handcrafted in Sheffield, the latter in a family run factory that’s been producing footwear for over 80 years. The shoes themselves pair a traditional loafer style with a large selection of colors and patterns — 33 by our count — that sets…

Converse Chuck Taylor All Star II Boot

Bare canvas doesn’t hold much heat in cold weather, and a bit of slush and snow only makes the situation worse. The new Converse Chuck Taylor All Star II Boot takes care of that while retaining the brand’s spirit and classic silhouette. Made of a mesh-backed leather, the boot naturally repels water and boasts a neoprene inner sleeve for warmth. It may be a little less spartan than their standard canvas-on-rubber shoe — which most die-hard…

ITS Kevlar Escape Laces

Escape gear comes in many forms, but we definitely didn’t expect to find it in laces.

Nike Flyknit Elite Golf Shoe

Nike’s Flyknit Elite strays far from the traditional golf shoe, and with some merit. The shoe uses Nike’s lightweight and breathable Flyknit upper to securely hug your foot without building up as much heat as leather, as well as a full-length Lunarlon midsole for soft but responsive cushioning. The former also extends to your ankle thanks to an extra-long collar that adds a sock-like fit on top of naturally keeping out pebbles and dirt….

Skinners Shoes

Thick-soled shoes have coddled your feet far too long. The proof of weakened muscles and ligaments? Try running barefoot. Skinners Shoes are probably closer to socks than shoes, but still offer enough protection to guard your feet from succumbing to adverse terrain. They’re hand-made in Europe and boast a durable dual coating of an anti-abrasive polymer underneath that’s affixed to antimicrobial fibre. Admittedly, working up to being able to run a few miles with this…
