Since so many great shoes were released this week, I couldn’t narrow them down to just one or two and stick them in Stuff I’m Digging This Week. I figured I should let you know all these great shoes are available now (or will be soon) and going quick. Pitter patter!
1017 Alyx 9SM Snake Hiking Boots
Snakeskin on hiking boots?! No, unfortunately it’s not real, but the embossed leather was likely influenced by the cowboy craze of last year. And that…thing attached to the bottom is just so eye-catching. You almost overlook the silver detailing on the side.
New Balance x Bodega 997S
Bodega is a little-known establishment based in Boston that is a mecca for streetwear enthusiasts. If you are a menswear fanatic, you owe it to yourself to go to the store at least once. This collaboration is so colorful and fun, they will be sure to get you through the summer in style. They’re not for sale yet, but will be in early April. Be on the lookout.
Dr. Martens x United Arrows & Sons Bit Loafers
I’m not crazy about every Dr. Martens collab, but this one is special. United Arrows is a Japanese cult menswear label that has a distinct way of reinterpreting preppy basics like many of their peers do. I’d love to wear these with a cricket sweater and plaid pants. Only available by preorder via UA’s website. Be sure to figure out your correct shoe size.
New Balance Tokyo Design Studio RC2
Tokyo Design Studio is a joint effort by New Balance’s American and Japanese design teams to utilize skillful craftsmanship unique to Japan. This is just one of the four colorways they’ve released exclusively to Notre.
Castaner Perseo Espadrilles
Summer is on its way, and temperatures are already beginning to warm up. If you don’t buy your warm weather gear now, it’ll be sold out by the time you get around to it. Espadrilles are the best summer shoes because they won’t weigh down your outfit or your feet. These will maintain the perfect balance of comfort and style till the weather cools off again.
Puma x MTV RS-X Tracks
Puma’s been killing it with their latest designs and this shoe continues the trend. A collab with MTV that evokes the decade in which the channel began airing, these also play on the neon trend that has become almost mainstream in its popularity. Preorder these while you can at the Puma site.
CAT Intruder Shoe
It’s not so odd when you think about it. CAT isn’t traditionally known for being fashionable, erring on the side of utility to a fault. But in an era when Dickies and Carhartt are more popular than ever on the street, the company best known for steel-toed boots decided to make a shoe that could appeal to fashion and function.
