No space-age technology. No crazy colorways. No gimmicks. Greats Rosen Sneakers are defined as much by what they aren't as what they are. That is, a straightforward, handsome, logo-less pair of sneakers sporting a high density nylon and suede upper, a dual-density EVA midsole for comfort, and a Vibram Freeride outsole with circular lugs for excellent traction. Available in navy (Cadet), olive (Cargo), and white (Nimbus); designed in Brooklyn.
Sometimes simple problems have simple solutions. Take the Shifter Boot Protector for example. It goes over your shoes, keeping your footwear from getting scuffed or marred by your bike's shifter. Made from leather with an elasticized strap to fit over nearly any size shoe/foot.
The third sneaker designed by Kanye West (the first two were with Nike before they had a falling out), the Adidas Yeezy Boost is a logo-less work of footwear art that looks like it's straight from a dystopian future where we all wear boots designed by rap gods. The high fashion sneaker sports an all-suede upper, full-length internal boost cushioning, ankle zipper, and Ye's signature forefoot strap. Available this weekend in NYC during NBA All-Star weekend, with a world release on February 28.
Some shoes are meant for running. Some for walking. The New Balance C-Series 600 Cycling Sneaker is meant for cycling. Designed in the company's Tokyo studio, it features a reflective material that shine through the perforated synthetic upper for added safety at night, a hideaway shoelace pouch, and slip-on construction for those too lazy to tie and untie their shoes. Available in four straightforward colorways.
