These $99 Boots
Couldn't Be Any Cooler
Mark McNairy has been a menswear insider for three decades. He's collaborated with the likes of Adidas, Pharrell, Bass and Timberland. And his New Amsterdam line makes some of the best bench-made shoes money can buy. But for those of us who want nice shoes without dropping a lot of cash, there's New Republic. "It's where any man can come to find the classic shoes he needs at an attainable price," says McNairy. "Under a name he's proud to mention."
The standout from the collection? These suede Chelsea boots, which according to the designer are so ass-kicking, that they'll replace all your other shoes. They have all the hallmarks of the best styles on the market today—a sleek profile, supple suede uppers and a soft leather insole, plus comfortable crepe sole. What they don't have is the $500 to $1,000 price tag. These handsomely made boots will only set you back $99. Available in four colors (we're partial to the sandy beige and dark grey), you can pre-order them now and they'll be shipped to you within the next 14 days.
