Billy Reid for K.Swiss Tennis Shoes


Billy Reid for K.Swiss Tennis Shoes Menswear Summershoes

       With Memorial Day passing by, it officially marks the seasons for nice summer sneakers. I shouldn't be catching you with boots on. I will be judging. If you're looking for a recommendation for a pair of sneakers. Then I suggest tennis shoes. Billy Reid has a great selection of sneakers that I highly recommend. For the fifth season, Billy Reid and K-Swiss is getting together for another collaboration. The footwear range once again merges distinctive design details to create a line of footwear that pairs seamlessly with the larger Billy Reid collection, and includes several variations of the heritage tennis brand's classic models. K-Swiss is definitely an OG when it comes to tennis kicks. The K. Swiss Arlington comes in vegetable tanned leather, tongue and back pull tab. Heirloom ribbon inner lining with calfskin footbed laces, thread through copper eyelets. The tennis shoes are trendy yet classic looks great on all the menswear enthusiasts that like wearing summer suits with sneakers. You can't go wrong with the white ones, mix in some khaki chinos and a white polo shirt and you should fine. Obviously the  all-white version  is excellent for warm-weather outfits. While the brown is perfect for summer as well, it can be the ideal summer-to-fall transition sneaker. The sneakers go for $155.00

Res Ipsa Wool Loafers


$225
     Ah, spring/summer, the season in which we wear seersucker, Madras shirts and linen pants and absorb the warm sun rays. Shoes completes the outfit and RES IPA definitely need to be on your feet. Actually the shoes will be the center of attention so forget about the outfit. I have mentioned the slippers before on the blog. The slippers were inspired by a visit to Istanbul, each loafer is handmade, crafted from vintage handwoven Turkish rugs, and finished with a durable leather sole and rubber heel.  Because each Turkish rug is unique and asymmetrical, no two pairs will ever be identical.
This pair of wool loafers is a one-of-a-kind. It is literally impossible to create two identical pairs of shoes, so the shoes you receive will be completely unique.The slippers are great option for the people that love wearing prince Alberts or velvet slippers but want something different. In the recent years, many footwear companies have been jumping into the velvet slipper bandwagon. If you wish to have that silhouette, but in a unique fabric click here
