The classic lace-up gets some new styling with the Vans Fixed Gear Era ($65). Designed for fixed gear cyclists, the sneaker sports a canvas upper paired with a triple-stitched rubber-reinforced (*breath*) ballistic ripstop canvas toebox. Even if you take the train to work everyday, these bike friendly shoes will keep you rolling in style.
Work boots get the comfort of all-day hikers with the Timberland Pro Endurance Boots ($130). Featuring anti-fatigue technology and the PowerFit system, these boots feature an impressive 5-layer footbed, polycarbonate hardware, climate control (to regulate temperature and control moisture buildup), a dual-density oil-resistant outsole, a rubber-coated steel toe, and a flexible Steel-Flex puncture resistant plate.
Since their introduction in the 1970's, Adidas' Rod Laver sneakers have been great examples of the classic white tennis shoe. Now the company is jazzing the old design up with the Adidas Rod Laver DP ($80). These restyled sneaks feature a black leather tongue and toe cap, accented by sides adorned with a herringbone pattern. A great update to a true classic.
