It's not unusual for guys to carry around a pair of boots in case bad weather hits, while wearing normal, ostensibly more stylish shoes. With these Timberland Stormbuck Waterproof Boots, there's no need, as their combination of style and versatility will have you prepared for anything. Crafted from waterproof full-grain leather, they feature a molded TPU toe cap, a Green Rubber and Gripstick outsole for excellent traction, a leather-lined footbed, 100% organic cotton laces, seam-sealed construction to make sure the water stays out, and a handsome two-tone color scheme that only serves to enhance their rugged looks.
Two of Oregon's most celebrated companies come together for these Pendleton x Nike ID Shoes.

Those include one plaid, four solid-color wool fabrics, 10 leathers, many accent colors, and three tartan patterns, all of which trace their roots back to Scotland.

Nike remains at the forefront of cross training footwear with the Zoom Hypercross Trainer. The latest innovation from the sneaker giant features a lightweight mesh upper backed with soft, pliable foam, a full rubber outsole and Dynamic Flywire cables to wrap the forefoot through the most strenuous workouts. It's also one of the first shoes to utilize the new Hexagonal Nike Zoom Air technology, blending high responsiveness with lightweight versatility.
Forget about the big boys in the sneaker game for a minute and open your eyes to something that is hand-made, high quality, and won't break the bank. The Royale sneaker, the latest release from Greats Brand, comes with all the features you'd expect from a pair that costs over $400 — premium Italian leather selected from the best tanneries, an Italian Margom sole, a footbed made with tanned calf leather, and waxed cotton laces. The only thing missing is the typical 2.5x retail markup, a feature we are happy to do without.
One of the greatest tennis players of all time teams up with one of the greatest basketball players of all time on the NikeCourt Zoom Vapor AJ3 by Jordan. Based on the Air Jordan 3 and Nike Zoom Vapor 9.5, this new limited edition kick was developed in collaboration with both Roger Federer and Michael Jordan, with the legendary Tinker Hatfield leading the design team. The result is a shoe that functions as well on the tennis court as it looks at home on the hardwood, featuring Dynamic Fit technology, a Zoom cushioning unit housed in Phylon, and signature white/cement elements taken from the Air Jordan 3 — complete with Jumpman and RF graphics and Nike Air branding on the heel.
It's common to dress comfortably when you're heading out for a long drive — yet somehow, most people seem to forget about their feet.

Simple, yet sophisticated, it's the perfect sneaker to start getting your wardrobe ready for fall and winter. This leather sneaker comes in a number of great-looking colorways (twilight, tobacco, and black are just a few you can choose from), and sports cross-stitched details adding further refinement. With square wax cotton laces, brass eyelets, and blue Jack Purcell stitching on the tongue, it goes with everything from your casual daywear to your upscale evening outfits.
What happens when you deliberately set out to disrupt the sneaker industry — selling direct for a price-point that's significantly lower than the competition — without sacrificing style and quality? You get Greats Bab Shoes. These stylish kicks are a cross between a trainer and a chukka, with a high-frequency weld nylon mesh upper, a blown EVA sole, enamel-coated eyelets, a bungie cord heel pull, and a soft ultra suede footbed. With eight available colorways and the opportunity to save even more if you bundle multiple pairs, it's pretty much impossible to go wrong.
Innovation isn't a word that normally comes to mind when discussing traditional formal shoes — but the Cole Haan ZeroGrand No Stitch Oxford is out to change all that. Forgoing traditional stitching, these lightweight shoes feature welded seams, helping cut down on the overall number of components, and an EVA outsole, spine, and foot bed that help reduce weight — each shoe only weighs around 290 grams (based on an 8.5 size). The upper is made from polyurethane die cut sheet stock and polyester rip-stop textile, allowing it to stay rugged while providing a more modern look, and making it ideal for all-day wear, whether you're at the office, dinner, or the after party.
Roger Bannister was the first man to run a four-minute mile. But as far as we can tell, the Vivobarefoot Bannister Shoe wasn't named after him, as it's not really made for running. Instead, this casual sneaker — designed in England and made in Portugal — is meant to give you a barefoot-like feeling when you wear it, thanks to a hand-finished and -polished leather upper, leather foxing, a leather footbed, and a 4mm sole that offers natural foot motion without putting your tender toes in harm's way.
Lazy people know it's true: the downfall of most slippers is their inability to be worn outside. That's not an issue for the Mahabis Slipper. These hand-crafted foot coverings feature breathable, cozy uppers, collapsible backs — god forbid you actually have to bend over to put your shoes on — and a detachable sole in your choice of color that takes them from house shoe to outside-ready in a snap.
Looking for a unique lightweight running shoe? Look no further. Available for one day — June 21 — and one day only, the NikeLab LunarGlide 6 sports upgraded Lunarlon foam for fantastic cushioning without excess weight, as well as an upper sporting a thin engineered foam liner, dynamic Flywire and a heel clip for a lock-down fit, an outsole with an anatomical flex pattern for a more natural range of motion, and your choice of white/black or black/white colorways. For your best shot at grabbing a pair, visit a NikeLab store.
You've spent plenty of time, money, and considerable effort building up your collection of footwear — so it's about time you gave some thought to what you're using to keep them on your feet: your laces.

With laces for everything from dress shoes and boots, to your work boots and sneakers, you can choose from a range of great-looking colorways to suit any pair.

And with a genuine leather welt, as well as a rubber camp outsole, you know they'll be as comfortable as they are durable.
We all know by now how unpredictable spring weather can be — one morning it's clear and blue, the next it's raining down buckets all over your commute — but that doesn't mean you should spend the entire day at the office in a pair of soggy oxfords. With Hunter Daleton Sneakers you can get where you're going without worrying about a little puddle or a big downpour. Made from natural rubber and completely waterproof up to the elastic gusset, these sneakers have all the weather benefits of clunkier boots without weighing you down. And with a range of colors to choose from, forget about looking stupid just because the sky is falling.
The Hill-Side is known for its ties, pocket squares, bandanas, and scarves. But more than that, it's known for quality goods — a tradition that's carried on in the new line of The Hill-Side Sneakers. Inspired by early American military and gym shoes, these low-top vulcanized sneakers offer carefully considered details like matching thread colors, foxing tape, and a molded outsole pattern. They're responsibly made in a 140-year-old factory in Kyushu, Japan, and come in a variety of colors, prints, and fabrics — so you should have no problem finding a pair to match your style.
As running shoes get increasingly closer to feeling like you're wearing nothing at all, Under Armour has thrown its hat into the ring with the Speedform Apollo Running Shoe. The first ever shoe with a molded seamless heel cup, the Speedform Apollos naturally cradle your feet, giving you excellent support without the discomfort of most heels. Ultrasonic seams throughout the shoe give you plenty of comfort, while a breathable, form-fitting upper lets heat escape from your feet and help stop any rubbing while you move. And with a lightweight responsive midsole, you get all the shock absorption you want in a running shoe, without all the typical bulk.
Don't the name fool you — while the Feit Bio Trainer 1 might be built on an athletic-looking sole, it's not designed for trips to the gym (or even the local jogging trail, for that matter). Instead this 100% handmade sneaker designed to be comfortable and cool, featuring a hand sewn upper made from vegetable-dyed suede or leather, a buffalo leather footbed that absorbs sweat, and a 100% natural latex rubber sole that's made using the milk of a rubber tree and takes a full two weeks to make.
Your extremities tend to be the hardest parts of your body to keep warm. Ensure that your feet stay nice and cozy with Volt Heated Slippers. These boot-style shoes feature a series of tiny conductive fibers woven into the insoles and a built-in rechargeable 3.7-volt lithium-ion battery that combine to heat your feet no matter the temperature outside. And unlike some solutions that are more than happy to heat you well beyond comfortable temperatures, these feature a built-in, auto-adjusting thermostat that will keep things from getting too hot.
Kick winter's snowy, white ass this new year in a pair of Nike LunarTerra Arktos Boots ($TBA) and leave yourself wondering how you ever got by with you current inferior excuse for footwear. These modular boots are packed with the kind of innovation only Nike can bring to a pair of boots, with Lunarlon technology in the midsole for comfort and mobility, Flywire and Hyperfuse in the upper for a flexible fit, and Vac Tech molding for fewer seems and better water resistance. The toe and heal sport a diamond texture that, along with their available black or olive colorways, will help you stand out when the weather turns bleak.
If you need a good pair of winter boots, but aren't too fond of the bulk and weight typically associated with warmer footwear, you need a pair of Native Jimmy Duck Boots. They've taken the familiar silhouette of the duck boot and modernized it, building it with lightweight EVA material and updated colorways. Choose from jiffy black, regatta blue, torch red, and beaver brown. Each pair is completely waterproof, washable so they're easy to keep clean, anti-microbial and odor-resistant so you don't have to worry about them getting nasty, and lined with micro fleece for warmth on even the coldest days.
Combining classic lace-up workwear style with the comfort of modern footwear technology, the Cole Haan Lunargrand Boot ($280) gives you everything you look for in a winter boot. Available in two understated colorways — brown leather or green leather with ripstop inlays — this boot features a waterproof leather upper perfect for keeping out snow and rain.

Nike Lunarlon cushioning in the sole gives you plenty of comfort, making this the ideal boot to wear all day.
Combining never-before-seen aesthetics with footwear technology designed to work with your foot, rather than against it, in a colorway that could only be inspired by one of basketballs most colorful characters — the Nike Kobe 9 Elite ($TBA; available February) is a shoe apart from any other. It uses Nike's Flyknit technology to make an upper that feels seamless, enhancing breathability, stretch, and support. Their Flywire technology helps provide additional support in the mid foot, loosening and tightening as your feet move. Lunarlon cushioning gives improved impact resistance, while keeping your feet anchored to the ground as you play.
Some shoe silhouettes never go out of style, but that doesn't mean they can't be made better with the addition of a bit of modern footwear technology — and the Nike Air Max Lunar 90 ($130) is proof. This classic shoe gets an update making the sole and upper more breathable, lightweight, and comfortable. The combination of a Lunarlon sole, a seamless upper, and a compression molded collar, lining, and tongue give these old-school kicks a touch of new-school ventilation, responsiveness, and wearability. Available now as a limited release in the original Air Max colorway, these shoes will soon be released in a series of other colorways to reflect the update.
Light up the slopes on your next nighttime run with the Nike LunarEndor QS Snowboard Boot ($TBA) thanks to the thirty LEDs implanted in each swoosh. They're powered by a built-in lithium ion battery, and controlled by a convenient power button in the boot's cuff, so you can decide when to switch them on and off. The technology doesn't stop at the lights though — they feature Lunarlon foam for a soft ride and improved impact resistance. They also have a customizable flex line system that lets you choose from three levels of stiffness, so you can optimize the ride for the park, the half pipe, or the backcountry. Available mid-December.
The latest in their series of collaborations with fellow Oregon native Nike, the Nike x Poler Vapen Snowboard Boots ($240) give us one more reason to like camo this winter. While meant for the snow, they come in an otherwise autumnal colorway — sporting shades of brown, green, and of course Poler's signature camouflage on the tongue and interior liner. They feature a mid-flex feel best for all around riding, with plenty of insulation to keep your feet warm throughout the season, and a weatherproof exterior to make sure your toes stay nice and dry.
Keep your look on the track old-school, while still giving your feet all the comfort and protection of a modern boot, with these Sparco Classic Racing Shoes ($280). These shoes are made with a full leather upper, giving them a handsome retro look with a comfortable fit. The sole is still made to resist fuel and oil — just like any other FIA-approved shoe — while providing plenty of grip whether you're walking the pits or pushing the pedal down. The only challenge now will be finding a racing suit that still looks the part.
