Oak Street Bootmakers Calfskin Bit Loafer

loafer.jpg

Launched in 2010, Oak Street Bootmakers is one of those companies that feels like it's been around forever and that's probably just because the shoes that come from these guys are of a quality that even exceeds that of some of the biggest luxury brands out there.

Since then the brand has amassed one impressive portfolio of fine footwear and this fall they've got another immaculate addition to the line, a classic Calfskin Bit Loafer. Handsewn in Maine, the shoe comes in black or brown Horween calfskin leather with calfskin lining, a leather sole with a stacked leather heel and dovetail toplift, and of course, brass and nickel horsebit hardware.

Club Monaco is teaming up with Pennsylvania-based (and sneakerhead-favorite) Saucony on a stylish trainer that's based on Creative Director Aaron Levine's favorite Saucony from the 1980s, the Jazz Low Pro. Levine took that design and updated it with a limited edition sneaker called the Courageous. Available in two colorways (black and neutral), the handsome and very versatile sneaker features tonal suede uppers, pigskin lining, and our favorite detail, a speckled sole. The shoe is available at their online store and Club Monaco's retail locations.

Red Wing Heritage Kangatan 8180

redwings.jpg

Red Wing Heritage is releasing a new boot this month and it has quite the history, especially if you're a big fan of baseball. The Kangatan 8180 is based off of the Super Setter 888 boot, a shoe created for Sears and baseball legend Ted Williams, who spent much of his time as an outdoorsman when he wasn't busy hitting homers for the Red Sox. His name also became synonymous with quality as a brand that adorned Sears' most premium sporting goods products.

Launched in 1963, the Super Setter 888 was made of kangaroo hide and was used due to its lightweight and durable characteristics and at the time was considered the best boot the company could produce. Today the 8180 honors that style with the same iconic green colorway which is crafted from Portage cowhide leather and will also be released alongside special edition baseballs that are made from the same leather.
