Eggplant Kicks

$45 / $17, at Urban Outfitters

I've been eyeing these cool Vans Authentics at J.Crew because of their subdued washed colors, and the way the boot laces really class up the canvas uppers. Then I came across these similar sneakers, in a unique eggplant colorway. Despite the bold color, they'd look good with anything from navy, khaki and even a jungle camo patterned pant. It's the type of shoe you can scoop up now to break in, and still wear all summer long with a pair of shorts and a short-sleeved woven shirt. And these here are a lot cheaper than that pre-washed pair. The best part? After a season of wear, the color will be a little worn-in (in the good sort of way), and the shoe will be ten times more comfortable.

    The great thing about cleaning canvas shoes? Just chuck 'em in the washer and let them air dry.
