From Jony Ive to fictional drug kingpin Walter White, the Wallabee has been a favorite of many and is as essential to footwear as Coca Cola is to the beverage world. The moc-toed favorite gets the Jeff Staple treatment that will bring the Clarks Wallabee into 2014 with a new limited edition.

The upper gets an all grey update while the signature crepe sole gets two-tone natural crepe that is hit with a red bottom that makes up Staple's famous Pigeon colorway that has adorned a number of popular streetwear pieces, including his infamous and very rare Nike Dunk SB.

Band of Outsiders Fall '14 Saddle Shoes

Now that the Saddle shoe is back and here to stay, it's time for some designers to rethink the preppy classic. Band of Outsiders has a great take on the Saddle Shoe with a whole collection featuring different fabrics, monochromatic uppers, and unique graphic treatments.

One of our favorites is the grey wool style made from a winter weight felted wool and a slipped heel that is accented with a bright hit of green. Other highlights include (photos after the jump) an all leather upper wrapped in a notebook print and a classic white and black Saddle that looks like the traditional style from afar, but upon closer inspection you'll find that the panels look as if they were painted on.

$575-$675, Band of Outsiders

FEIT Bio Trainer Mid

Feit's Bio Trainer 1 is one of our favorite and most impressive sneaker releases this year with a design that is cut from a single piece of leather. This time around they're giving the Bio trainer a fall update with a mid-top that gives the sneaker a boot-like aesthetic.

Construction is just like the original, an incredibly impressive piece of craftsmanship that is 100% handmade from leather or suede by a single master craftsman. On the back of the shoe is a heel counter made with a high-grade leather that is usually used in luxury dress shoes and the lightweight, biodegradeable sole is made from a natural latex rubber sourced from the milk of a rubber tree.

$500, FEIT

Nike + R.T. Air Force 1 Beige Collection

nikeair.jpg

This may be the third and final Nike AF1 collection from Givenchy's Ricardo Tisci, but it's also happens to be the most handsome of the bunch. The designer skipped the bright colors of the previous releases and while that might sound boring, the end result is a refined and luxurious variation of a sneaker classic.

The collection features three styles, but we've got our eyes on the classic low tops which are updated in a sandy "beige" colorway that is crafted from premium leather and accented with a tumbled leather black swoosh. The tongue and heel are done up in synthetic suede and the heel is also decorated with Tisci's signature design accents. The collection will be available tomorrow, October 16th, at NikeLab locations worldwide as well as NikeLab.com.

There are a gajillion moccasin boots you can choose from, but these Meddy Bemps from Quoddy are definitely at the top of the heap. From its exceptional construction to its Chromexcel upper, it's one of those items we definitely consider a trophy piece.

Each pair is a custom order and takes up to eight weeks to build. The pebbled brown Chromexcel leather is handsewn with hand-stitching in the toe and cross-stitching up through the inner side seam and that all sits on a Vibram lug sole.
