While women frequently take the rap for shoe obsessions, anyone who’s known a sneakerhead knows shoe worship regularly crosses gender lines. The Cut takes a look at teen sneakerheads who are finding the sneaker market more lucrative than the street market.
The holidays may be gone, but one trend that we can get into all year round are semi-formal sneakers. Sure, satin, velvet and pearls have traditionally been reserved for evening, but with winter storms making sidewalks icy and walking in heels a bit more precarious they’re a great way to add some polish to weather appropriate outfits without crossing over to the dark side.
We’re jealous of all our Japanese readers after taking a look at the latest Jack Purcells for the exclusive Converse Japan collection. The newest drop includes leather kicks in the classic Purcell shape fabricated in solid red or black, as well as — our favorite — a black-and-white wingtip/saddle shoe-inspired look called the Dresscode 1/2.
