Unlike a lot of shoes that source their material from Africa, Sawa Shoes are made entirely on the continent. Using canvas from Cameroon, leather from Nigeria, lace from Tunisia, EVA and rubberfrom Egypt, and Packaging from South Africa, the shoes design is inspired “from the omnipresence of second hand cloths sent from developed countries and input into the African economy.” Super tight.

Crazy expensive but, fly nonetheless.

Alright Chuck, we see you.
Sure, it’s a walking shoe. But really, how often do you actually run in running shoes anyway? These are made for walking, and that’s most likely all you’ll ever do. Classic New Balance grey tones and a suede upper make this the go-to shoe for wandering around the NYC streets this Summer.
Available at NB web express
Say what? The zipper on the side is a bit too dandy for me though. Available in black too.

True, Earth Day is a month away but, we figure if you buy the Vans authentic Hemp Classics now they will be good and broken in when that Hippie Day where you don’t even need shoes comes around.
Christopher Bettig teamed up with C1rca on great looking version of the Circa Drifter Select. Nice looking for summer. Buy them now!

Throw some grey laces on these bad bays and we’re good to go.

The Camper K-3 is a worship-worthy shoe. I had to scan this image from Monocle Magazine. These puppies are hard to find.
Brogues do not always have to be in leather. Pick these up at TOPMAN
Clarks are a mainstay on the sole of my foot. For the past couple months I’ve been wearing the low-top Weaver, so seeing this version in an ankle height makes me anticipate a fall US release. Ankle warmth and Comfort.

Straight from the 70’s archive this shoe was the first skateboard shoe Adidas ever created!, A must have.
With the 365 day Alarm Clock, New Balance just launched an effort to become a part of your life (even more so, if you love their sneaks) for the next 365 days. Since I downloaded it this morning I have yet to use it yet but, the 365 day Alarm clock is a pretty smooth iPhone App that’ll wake you up every morning with a video. Now if they could only manage to get all of the New Balance in Japan released stateside, I’d be in heaven.
