Bold Colors Hit The Deck For Sperry

sperry top sider ss10 1 Bold Colors Hit The Deck For Sperry

Sperry has just released its color palette for Spring 2010 and it continues the boldness we enjoy from Sperry. Tan on blue, sky blue and a stony white, navy blue against khaki, tan, green, and the rich navy blue highlight the colorways of 2010 in Sperry-land.

We know that deck shoes are meant to be worn “on deck” and that many people wear them in shorts and without socks, but consider the possibilities as you make your boat shoe choices. You can stretch your boat shoes all year. Try the tan/blue with your favorite khakis and go “green” with your favorite jeans. Come on in…the water’s fine!

Houndstooth Takes A Walk for Maccheronian

maccheronian houndsthooth chukka Houndstooth Takes A Walk for Maccheronian

Maccheronian’s new Chukka isn’t completely “Chukka”. It isn’t completely smeaker either. Actually, it’s a Chukka Sneaker that features 4 metal loopholes, a soft design and a comfortable all-white outsole. The fabric on the shoe droops slightly when not being worn which means it will settle onto your foot once you put these princes of the sidealk on your feet. (Now that’s comfort!) Add the suede highlight on the back and you have a fashion forward way to dress up (or down) your wardrobe. Now hit the road Jack…and come back for more!

Opening Ceremony Cranks Out Some Timbies

timbie1 Opening Ceremony Cranks Out Some Timbies

Opening Ceremony has a new (and exclusive) Timberland Collection that have been customized to perfection using unique products and old school sensibility.

The “convenience” boot is a take on the Classic Timberland (the one you see on every street corner and mall.) The difference here is the elastic band that acts a lace. This streamlines the boot and gives it a more modern feel. Choose from the piercing stone color or the classic “wheat” to match every casual outfit in your wardrobe.

Alongside “convenience” we have a boot made in the style of a moccasin. Seven metal loopholes, oil-tanned leather, and two different sets of laces compliment this boot that can pose as a “deck-shoe-in-disguise”, a moccasin, or a boot (in black and brown.) You pick the occasion.

New Balancing Luxury Touches in the 574

nblux1 New Balancing Luxury Touches in the 574

New Balance’s 574 Lux brings all the comfort and classic shaping that New Balance is known for, but it also brings some beautiful refinements to the table that make this shoe functional and fashionable. The “top hide” upper almost looks like Bison leather and the perforated leather at the toe and ankles makes the shoe stand out (even in all black!) The soft leather lining should encase your foot in luxurious silky-smoothness and the utilitarian toe tongue tag looks like this shoe came from a progressive European Denim Factory (and who doesn’t want to tour that factory?) Wear it to the gym, take a shower and then wear it to a nice lunch. You know you want to…

converse addict season 2 front The Converse Addict:  Act 2

The Japanese have it going ON! They have their own “top shelf” Chuck Taylors and they have resurrected them for a “2nd Act” if you will.
