Skate ready high top

You’ve probably seen Nike’s classic BLZR high tops before, but never before. The bold cherry color of these skater shoes makes them one of a kind. They’ve got a retro look to them but they’ll introduce your puck to a whole new level of comfort thanks to the light weight and flexible rubber sole.

Listen to your girlfriend — a crisp white sneaker Always A dress is essential. No matter who you are! But remember, these are not your co-ed kickball practice or the kicks you wear in the gym. Think of these as special occasion sneakers, ideal for casual dates when you still want to look your best.

Rick Owens’ reverence for the classic Converse hints at the return of lace-up high-tops, but it’s the addition of a platform that really piqued my interest. If dark colors or funky textures aren’t for you, let a solid platform speak for itself – not to mention giving you a little added height. Not that you are looking for it.

Suede slip-on

If you’re trying to sort out your everyday outfit in 2022, don’t think that you have to settle for something harsh. Style and comfort can be the same! And suede slip-on makes it easy. Imagine the silhouette of your favorite, ratty checkered van, upgraded to a soft premium suede that goes with everything from denim to chinos. Trust me, you will never touch the van again.

Gorpcore Kicks

Gorpcore, basically, the yassification of outdoor aesthetics. Basically, this means that anything that looks like you can buy it from a camping store and style it with a hunting vest is suddenly flashy! In terms of sneakers, there are many ways to get the look, but any technique should be done with bungee cord details, earthy tones and a rubber sole.
