Most of the time when choosing a boot, you have to decide between work-ready ruggedness or five o'clock-friendly style. The Wolverine Mayall Boot ($225) offers the best of both worlds, with a work boot foundation incorporating a full-foam footbed and rubber outsole, and a soft full-grain leather upper with a plaid woven print lining that can be exposed by folding the eight-inch boot's top down a few notches. Available in black or tan.
Dreams do come true. While it's not yet 2015, Nike is releasing Marty's mythical shoe from Back to the Future II. The Nike MAG ($TBD) won't feature power-lacing, but they will sport glowing LEDs and an electroluminescent "Nike" in the strap, all glowing for around five hours per charge. Only 1500 pairs of the Nike MAG will be available — and they'll all be auctioned off on eBay with all proceeds going to the Michael J. Fox Foundation to help fight Parkinson's disease. The first of the auctions start tonight at 11:30 ET.
If you're the type of person that does mind wearing a few (hundred) logos on your feet, you might also be the type of person that likes the Gucci GG Plus Moccasin ($425). These showy slip-ons feature a beige upper with an ebony GG logo treatment, dark brown trim, cutout interlocking G detail on the front, and a rubber sole that integrates carbon fiber for added support.
