winter chucks.

Converse jumped on the waterproof bandwagon and dropped their line of weatherproof all-stars. for only $60, they're definitely worth a shot. take a look:

Designed with a gusseted tongue and brass eyelets, the water resistant Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Rubber is built to help protect your feet during rainy day weather and music festival mud pits. Stop by the Converse site for more info.


duck season.

in most places around the country fall = rain, sometimes even snow. what that means for you is that your feet need to stay dry and warm instead of moist and cold. I instantly regret using the word 'moist'. moving on... 

for me, the coolest option for fall/winter weather on your feets is the duck boot.

Now i'll be the first to admit: it can be really tough to find a duck boot that: 


  • looks fresh
  • doesn't make your feet look like they belong to Shaq
  • Don't cost you a small fortune


this dilemma has led me to search unusual options and alternatives to the classic duck boot. you may remember the Dr. Martin Drench boot from a few months back. My search continued and finally lead me to the Timberland Stormbuck Waterproof Duck Boot. This may very well be the coolest duck boot I've ever seen. And now, it's the coolest duck boot you've ever seen. You're welcome. 


Yeah, that's a wing tip duck boot.

how to polish your shoes.

it's hard to beat a good pair of leather shoes or boots. Yes, it will cost more money. Yes, it will be worth it. The best parts about having quality leather footwear are the way that they wear in and the duration they'll last. But, to get the full benefits, you need to take good care of them, and part of that comes form polishing them every so often. Check out this tutorial on the polishing process by the gentlemanual.

you'll need the following materials:

Once you've gotthe equipment, watch this step-by-step video.

I generally skip the "spit shine" as I prefer my shoes a bit rugged looking as opposed to shining, but that's up to your own preference.
