Vancouver-based Native follows up the Apollo Moc with another great release, the Apollo Chukka. The company is releasing it in an early limited release called the Hand Dyed Pack that takes the thousand-year-old Japanese techniques of Shibori dying and applies it to Native's modern and minimalist take on the classic chukka. Each shoe is hand dyed with a Shibori Blue upper making each pair unique. The Apollo Chukka will be available at select stores such as Kith NYC, Livestock in Vancouver, WOAW in Hong Kong, and Starcow in Paris.

If we could recommend any boot for the fall odds are we'd always gravitate towards the chukka. It's a great all-around style that you can use for various occasions and one you can wrong with everyday. Oak Street Bootmakers is releasing a new Chukka today that we're already lusting after with a special chocolate suede upper they've created with Horween. The leather comes from a full grain hide that uses a proprietary tumbling and oiling process to create a waterproof suede. It's also got a storm welt making it a surprisingly rugged piece that you won't be scared of getting dirty.

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.

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.

Red Wing Heritage Kangatan 8180

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.
