OAMC Work Boots

oamc.jpg

Still a brand in its infancy, OAMC has been getting a lot of press for its modern takes on workwear classics. The praise is well deserved. Designer Luke Meier (formerly of Supreme) continues to impress and their footwear collaboration with Atelier Heschung are definitely on our wishlist.

For Fall, OAMC has got a new work boot constructed from a grainy Italian vacchetta leather and a unique translucent outsole. They water-resistant boots also have speed hooks, a Norwegian welt, and a metallic heel counter.

Summer isn't quite over yet, but with fall creeping in ever so slowly you can never be too prepared for the months ahead. J.Crew knows you won't be ready to give up your summer duds so they've carefully switched up a hot weather staple with an update for the fall with Sperry's new Wool Slip-Ons.

Casual and comfortable, the exclusive style comes in two colors: a two-tone grey or navy-grey. We have a feeling these will be a goto everyday pair next season and it's a versatile shoe that looks great whether you're in your favorite pair of Levis or a crisp pair of khakis.

Cole Haan Summer '14 LunarGrand Collection

While Cole Haan is focusing more of its marketing on the newly-announced Zerogrand, Cole Haan hasn't forgot about the shoe that started it all, the LunarGrand.

The Lunar sole will make its way to three new styles this season: The LunarGrand Two Gore, LunarGrand Moc Chukka, and the LunarGrand Chelsea. We're loving the classic looks of the Chelsea boot on a Lunar sole and the Two Gore is bound to become a favorite for those who want a more luxurious yet comfortable slip-on for travel. The shoes will come in black or grey suedes with matching soles and our favorites: Woodbury and Chestnut leather.

$198-$228, Cole Haan

When Herschel Supply Co. calls up Clarks to release a special edition shoe, you know it just has to be a Desert Boot. The Clarks fixture gets a colorful update while respecting the aesthetics of both brands.

Hershel gave the upper an update with premium blue leather and a selvage denim heel and signature red and white stripe lining on top of that always-familiar crepe sole. The limited release looks like it will be exclusive to Europe and is available online and in-store through their select stockists which you can find at the link below.

Jack Purcell Cross Stitch Ox

Sometimes the smallest details are the strongest ones and that's the case with Converse's Jack Purcell Cross Stitch Ox. The shoes are a bit of a change from the preppier, white canvas styles, but we're liking what they've done here with the black leather styling.

Purcell purists might disagree with the non-traditional upper, but we like how the black leather dresses up the design a bit and the white contrast cross stitch detailing is a nice, subtle touch. It doesn't end there, the shoes switch it up with a tan colored "smile" on the toe cap and the insole is made from cork.

One of the most significant (and unexpected) sneaker releases of the year from the elite trio of Hiroshi Fujiwara, Tinker Hatfield, and Mark Parker are releasing their second version of the football-inspired Free Mercurial Superfly HTM. For its second variant, the shoe is coming out in what has quickly become a new signature color for the Swoosh: Volt.

The brightly-hued colorway gives a whole new look to the sneaker and just like the stealthy black release before it, the shoe will feature a high-top, lightweight Flyknit upper, integrated ankle cuff, and the flexibility of a Free 5.0 sole. Look for the new HTM release at Nike Lab locations around the world on July 12th as well as Nike.com/NikeLab.
