We know guys who are shoe junkies. They’ll gladly drop hundreds on a pair of Air Yeezy’s or Jordan’s and never wear them. We’re not like that. We prefer having a few pairs that look sweet and won’t leave us with an empty bank account. These H&L Era 59’s from Vans fit both of our criteria. The plaid collar lining is a nice way to make a pair of normally understated kicks stand out, and we dig the leather detailing on the canvas uppers for a bit of a contrast. Plus, at $55, they’ll leave our wallet plump enough to go buy pants to wear them with. You gotta have pants.


Tired of the limited options in the brick-and-mortar world and the traditional retail experience, the guys from Paul Evans set out to make their own luxury Italian shoes. Made from the finest Italian calfskin leather that’s been Blake stitched for exceptional comfort, sleek design and the ability to resole, these dress shoes are heritage brand quality available to you at a fraction of the cost. Lace up something better with Paul Evans.
