Styling Tip

Solid kicks let you get away with bolder pants and shorts. Pull on the patterns, stripes and textures.

The world of street wear is something that's always kind of been just shy of Valet.'s usual territory, but we're suckers for some good-looking canvas shoes. West coast-based Undefeated started out as a coveted sneaker shop—the kind of place where you would go to buy aftermarket Air Jordans for much more than the retail price. When they started getting into making their own clothing line, founders Eddie Cruz and James Bond drew heavily from the sporting world and the notions of competition. They're no strangers to sneaker collaborations, but this latest effort for Converse's Jack Purcell definitely got our attention. Adding a subtle racing stripe, the lining and foot bed also have a little terrycloth, perfect for summer. Made in limited quantities, all three colors release today. We're particularly fond of the burgundy.
