Shoe of the Day

Posted by Marjorie Skinner on Tue, Jun 23, 2009 at 11:37 AM

I'm not much of a sneaker person (the high heeled versions are generally an abomination, and they pretty much all are manufactured under circumstances that put my faint liberal heart on high alert), but I just received the look book for Converse's fall styles, and there's pretty much only one I think worthy of note: They collaborated with Woolrich (no Pendleton, true, but an American institution nonetheless) to make some woolly versions of the classic low- and hi-tops. The question that then remains is whether the whole workwear/neo-grunge embrace of buffalo checks and such that gained traction during the latter half of '08 will have enough momentum to remain cool come fall. Me, I just like the red ones.
