MASON: MADE IN ITALY
The older I become I find myself drawn more towards high-quality footwear. As I satisfy my cravings for sneakers (specifically retros) I’ve noticed that I’ve become more concerned with versatile silhouettes, neutral color ways, real leather and comfortable soles. I discovered Mason when I came across the IG page of their Art Director (@mitchelldjh). The inspiration and structure of this shoe is a no-brainer: Nike Air Force 1 and Adidas Stan Smith (Raf Simons) mash-up with a one-piece full-grain calf leather upper. The Omar Alce Virtus is a great option this summer and gives you the option to showcase individuality but still be trendy. Mason
ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK
In fashion, it is always key to have basic silhouettes and colors to rotate in your wardrobe. The same technique should be practiced with your footwear and as summer approaches our usual monotones of black and white colorways are being replaced by more appropriate and vibrant colors. My favorite this season is orange. I believe that orange is a great vibrant yet neutral option for 2016. Here are a few of my favorites this season.

Editor of GQ Style, Will Welch (@willwelch) and Designer/ Founder of Kith, Ronnie Fieg (@ronniefieg) discussed the 5 essential pieces of footwear for today's professional male.
