As many people know, colorful kicks are out, and deck shoes are in–at least for cats nearing 30 like me. In 2010 I’ve maintained a no sneaker policy (like Jay-Z), and I’m not the only one. The market is growing up from expensive tees and overpriced trainers to button downs and shoes your dad would rock. Seeing this trend, traditional sneaker manufacturers like Nike and Adidas are rushing more upscale gear to the market.
Take the limited edition Adidas Summer Deck Shoes. The style is classic, understated, and screams grown and sexy. It’s a departure for the shoe maker, but a wise move at best.
I haven’t found these shoes anywhere online, but they retail at select stores for $60. (via Smoking Section)
