Buzz Rickon's Ventile Sneakers

If the Chucks just aren't cutting it, maybe it's time to upgrade to a pair of Buzz Rickson's immaculately reproduced US Government Issue basketball sneakers. This season, the brand updates the shoe in one of the finest technical fabrics in the world: Ventile. Ventile keeps things breathable and is also water resistant, a perfect combo for transitional weather. Available in black or olive, the sneakers also feature anodized steel eyelets, a natural rubber sole, mid-sole glue markings just like the originals, and they're made in Japan.
