Band of Outsiders teams up with the perennial Sperry Top-Sider for yet another beautiful collection. Full of suedes and canvas’ (with one black pair or suede/leather boat shoes), the collection is sure to go quick. We see a new pair of penny loafers, with the very classic “penny slip” on the tongue. Personally, my favorite are the seersucker boat shoes; simply beautiful. Now, if you want to buy a pair (which you need to, because it is crucial for your Spring/Summer look) head over to Tres Bien Shop and grab one.

Creative Recreation lets us sneak a peek at their new Fall/Winter 2010 collection, and the progression is beautiful. In the past, we’ve been used to seeing the same silhouettes such as the Cesario or the Dicoco, but this year they’ve created some great new silhouettes; that look like they’ve been inspired by some sneakers of the past. The Solano is their newest piece, and includes zipper on the upper, that you can zip or un-zip for your preference. The Dicoco’s got a revamping with new colorways and textures. This year (quote me on this) Creative Recreation will have one of the biggest years in urban footwear; especially thanks to their “The Collection” line. You can check out more right here.
