The Canvas Sneaker

Every man needs a good pair of canvas sneakers. And for Billy Reid, the Alamaba-based designer who knows his way around sturdy, masculine staples, that pair has been by K-Swiss. Reid's been kicking around in the California brand's canvas tennis shoes for more than 25 years. (And if you haven't heard, the man wears 'em hard.) So when he got the chance to collaborate with K-Swiss, he wanted to give the shoes the same disheveled elegance found in his main line. He washed the canvas for a soft, well-worn feel, chose old school rope laces and added a handsome mattress stripe cotton lining. The result is signature Billy Reid—quality materials, made for comfort and built to last.

$95 available online April 19th, at Billy Reid
