Six of the Best – Footwear for February

Best foot forward and all that.

New Balance MIUS 998
Stepping towards spring like some kind of minty biscuit, this 998 looks like it’s inspired by a pistachio infused cup of coffee or something. Basically, what we’re saying is, it’s brown and green and we like those colours together. As for the model, you don’t need that selling to you. It’s a 998, FFS.

Nike ACG Torre mid Boot
When it comes to the outdoors, our head tells us to go for seriously technical outdoor brands these days, but our heart belongs to ACG, whose beautiful suede boots will do a decent job in the outdoors anyway, but might serve you better as you parade the pavements in your GORPY garms.

adidas Originals by Spezial Moscrop
We don’t cover Spezial enough on here, you know. There I said it. We’ve done plenty, but it warrants more than an inclusion in a round-up like this. Named after founding member of ACR Martin Moscrop (like our own Hikerdelic jacket several years ago), and coming in cordura, this is a compelling concrete offering for the commencement of the rainy season.

Puma X Noah Suede V Sneaker
Even cool people have ingrowing toenails, and it is for them this shoe appears to have been made. Comfort is key, and the lack of laces in favour of straps will polarise views. We’re on the side of “yeah you know what, the people I hate won’t like them, therefore I’m in”.

Nike Zoom Vomero 5 Sneaker
Like something her with the mutated upper body in Total Recall would wear to attend step class, the Vomero is well futuristic isn’t it?

Salomon S LAB Odyssey Element Advanced Sneaker
We’ve done laces, that’s like Shay (a given). Straps were mentioned via Puma above. Now though, zips. “He wears them shoes with zips” sounds like a Paul Calf-style insult, but fortunately Paul Calf isn’t our style guru.
