fuggit - lounge in style.

gone are the days where your home slippers were required to ugly and childish. No longer must you warm your feet with furry dinosaurs that roar with each step, or with moccasins that are only reaching low-medium comfort levels. Uggs? No thanks! Crocs? GTFO!

Feast your eyes on the fuggit air mags:


Finally, someone found a good reason to crochet without being compared to an elderly woman surrounded by cats and grandchildren. 

These things are handmade by one man, with the goal of "ending sneaker violence". What is sneaker violence, you say? No, it is not the name given to turf wars between different gangs of sneakers, but the acts of senseless violence to obtain coveted sneakers from someone else. Fuggit's plan is to "make the shoes, sell them, and take proceeds from that and buy sneakers to give away. No gimmicks, no raffles, no nothing." The aim for Fuggit is to defuse some of the coveted and limited status of popular designs that are clearly linked to the violent crimes.

Stop by Fuggit's website and pick up a pair of knit kicks. Not feeling the air mags? No worries, Fuggit also produces lines of Jordans, Yeezys, and other designs.

nike presto flyknit.

Nike has released a much more attractive update to the presto shoe--The nike air flyknit presto ultra.

It seems like a handful of nike shoes are getting the ol' ankle-sock upgrade treatment lately, so I've got to assume it's been received well thus far. I know I love my soccer cleats with the ankle boot, so it stands to reason that I'd be into it with a runner or casual shoes as well.

This thing looks breathable AF, and comfy too--made out of knit that looks like a dang crocodile skin from the top.

 

  • Flyknit upper conforms to your foot for lightweight support
  • Signature TPU cage delivers midfoot support
  • Sockliner and sole cut-outs enhance breathability and flexibility
  • Injected unit sole provides lightweight comfort and durability
  • Mid-cut collar delivers a snug, supportive fit
  • Waffle-inspired outsole with durable rubber pods for traction

  • I imagine this will come in other colorways but for now, I'm all about that white on white. Daaaayyyyuummmmm Nike, back at it again with the white prestos.

    outdoor style garb.

    Prepping for my Yosemite trip has me obsessed with outdoor style right now--even mixed into everyday attire. Check out this Style Garb layout from Uncrate that emphasizes my point.

    RRL Barringer Leather Jacket ($1,900). 
    Simon Miller Sweatshirt ($185). 
    Journal Standard Work Shirt ($126). 
    Raleigh Denim Alexander Jeans ($285). 
    Danner Stumptown Mountain Light Boot ($360). 
    Sneerwell Casket Flask ($65). 
    Biltwell Gasolina Reserve Gas Tank ($20). 
    Salt Optics Leif Sunglasses ($475).
    Iron & Air 15/16 Bundle Pack ($15).
    1970'S Enicar Sherpa Guide 600 Watch ($1,150).
    Cordero Motorcycle Gloves ($45).


    Now, for my purposes, I'd be swapping the flask for a pocket knife or multitool, and the leather jacket for something waterproof or a down jacket, but you get the idea. 

    Style is all about combining the things you love, however different they may be.

    covered in leather.

    the leather jacket should be a staple in every well-dressed man's closet. And if you want a quality leather jacket that fits well and follows current fashion trends, you can't beat the england-based allsaints.

    I'll warn you ahead of time: a quality, authentic leather jacket is not going to be cheap, but you get what you pay for.

    allsaints fits pretty true to size, so you can feel safe buying online. That being said, if you're going to be dropping that kind of cash, it makes sense to find a store and try it on first. Your call.

    warby parker spring '16.

    warby parker was a game changer with it's 'home try-on' approach to shopping for prescription frames, but the reason we still like them is because they're frames are always on point and affordable. 

    most of their frames start around a hundred bucks, and with the option to pick 5 pairs to try on in your own home, you really can't go wrong.

    Check out their newest spring line:

    The Kensett - $95

    The Preston - $95

    The Haskell - $145

    The Kensett - $95

    The Burroughs - $95

     

    There are dozens of other styles available on their website. If you're in the market to freshen up the look of your facial region, this is the way to do it.

    Thank Pharrell, not Kanye.

    Adidas AG executives are decidedly happy these days, thanks to Pharrell Williams.

    While they were throwing euros at Kanye West and letting him run amok in the design department, the sober heads in Herzogenaurach, Germany, pulled out a 45-year old basketball shoe called the Superstar and put it in Pharrell’s hands. Adidas declared 2015 "the year of the Superstar" and in March released 50 color-saturated versions that the soft-spoken pop star touted in rainbow-laced ads.

    The result? Adidas just announced that it sold 15 million pairs of Superstars last year, far more than any of its other shoes. In other words, these nondescript kicks from the 1970s have become a billion-dollar business. At $100 or so per pair, they accounted for almost $1 in every $10 Adidas took in last year.

    Kanye West may well be king of the special-release sneaker. He is, no doubt, helping Adidas regain some street cred against Nike Inc. But most of the profit in small-batch footwear goes to sneakerheads fortunate to get their hands on a pair and then flip them on secondary markets. Make no mistake: West is playing small ball. All seven of his "Yeezys" to date have sold out "instantly." Meanwhile, he doesn’t come cheap. Tally up the profit and loss, and the Yeezy becomes a marketing exercise more than an immediate moneymaker.

    All told, revenue from the Adidas “Originals” line, which includes such vintage stalwarts as Superstar and Stan Smith, surged by 46 percent in the most recent quarter. No other part of the business came close to matching that growth. The company’s soccer gear, tightly hitched to Argentine phenom Lionel Messi, managed a 26 percent gain for the year while its running revenue increased by 6 percent.

    Sometimes, being cool is effortless.

    lunarepic flyknit.

    Finally, somebody comes out with a new innovation in the world of running shoes. Did we all expect it to come from Nike? yeah probably, but that doesn't make it any less impressive.

    Let's be honest, running is borderline cruel and unusual punishment, so anything that can lessen that struggle is a godsend. check it:

    This thing is pretty sweet. I mean, it looks extremely dorky on its own, but not half bad on some feets.

     

     

  • Flywire integrates with the laces for a dynamic, supportive fit
  • Skin-like overlay on the heel for added structure - this is the same tehnology as seen in the most recent soccer cleats
  • Fused foam midsole for enhanced durability without the use of glues or cements
  • Laser-cut outsole provides great multi-surface traction
  •  

     

    Check them out here.
