First I proclaimed the Herschel x New Balance shoes to be the shoes of the year. And they are still awesome, and I hope you are wearing them. But these Opening Ceremony x Adidas shoes ($175) are just as badass. I like a shoe that doesn’t really get edited. There’s a mesh trimmed sole, a white mesh window, a tangerine hook tag and bright green laces. It puts the art in Gay Farts and Culture.
And for those who don’t like shoes with everything. Denmark’s Wood Wood spring/summer shoes are the much more toned down versions of the ones above (270 Euros)—but be sure to make note of that green suede toebox, because it really makes the shoe what it is. Unfortunately, not every opportunity calls for the most badass sneaker.
