Ascis men's classic low-top sneaker Tarther OG

With so many great shoes dropping these days, we thought we'd pull a few of our current favorites to showcase. These are the kicks our team can't stop talking about. But they're the type that sellout fast, so if you're digging them the way we are, you'd better pull the trigger.

The Ultimate
Gym Shoe

When it came time to refresh this cult-favorite sneaker for its fifth iteration, the brand's designers had plenty of feedback on what was working well and what could be better. For instance, it now features grippier traction and reengineered cushioning that's firm in back and dynamic in front—allowing you to go from heavy lifts to burpees with ease. And the heel was made even wider to enhance the shoe's already-impressive stability.

The Understated
Statement Sneaker

The Nite Jogger is inspired by a groundbreaking reflective running shoe Adidas launched in the 1980s. For 2019, the brand reworked the design, developing a textural, almost monochromatic upper consisting of a mesh and nylon ripstop upper detailed with suede overlays and reflective accents.

The Work to
Weekend Option

A simple sneaker with a sleek, refined shape, Clae's Gregory comes in a range of colorways, but you can't go wrong with this light khaki leather. Finished with a perforated vamp and flat waxed cotton laces, they're the type of sneakers that easily pair with your work wardrobe, summer wedding suits or weekend jeans and T-shirts.

The Bonafide
Classic Sneaker

Asics went back into their archives to revive this heritage shoe from 1983. Originally launched as an ultra-light runner, the lightweight low-top is available in three colorways, each featuring the signature silver Tiger stripes.

The
Recycled Option

These canvas sneakers look old school, but everything about them is incredibly forward thinking. The canvas and laces are made from 100% post-consumer plastics, the outsoles are crafted from recycled rubber and cork with natural rubber for durability. Even the insoles have been considered for performance, all-day comfort and odor resistance.

The
Off-Road Sneaker

These are a little bit country, a little bit city. And that's just what we like about them. Leading-edge trail technology is paired with a softer and lighter version of New Balance's popular Fresh Foam technology to provide speed and traction with the utmost comfort. Plus, they easily slip on and off—no tying necessary.
