Shelve your boots and chunky brogues; the season for churched-up casual kicks is nigh. Crisp. Comfortable. All summer-like. The kinda’ shoes you — back in the dead of winter — said you couldn’t wait to wear. Make good on your word. These five are a step ahead of the pack.
Dropping only $50 on a pair of Greats Rosens means you can go from running the streets to running the baseball diamond without crying over scuffed toes. Track-and-field silhouette with minimal branding, and a high-density EVA sole for max comfort.
For your canvas option: Jack Purcell is offering a smooth black and blue colorblock option to its lineup, kitted out with a cork footbed, metal eyelets and a brushed suede upper. Pair it with rolled-up chinos and a lightweight knit.
The Monochrome Leather
Monochrome is sophisticated and refreshing. Try these grey low-tops from Common Projects. Don’t be afraid to dress these up — fine Italian leather inside and out paired with superior construction make these one of the most coveted sneakers on the market.
New for this season, we love Nike’s Air Max 90 Ultra BR because any man, essentially at any age, can toss these on and look and feel smart. Sleek profile. Perforated uppers for breathability. The White Air Max soles are not only comfortable, but also look damn crisp.
When Todd Snyder and PF Flyers get together, the results are always first-class. No exception: the leather Perforated Rambler. Available in low or hi-top. Old-school athletic look with a glossy finish. Pigskin leather lining. Will keep your feet cool all summer long.
