Getting the Royal Treatment for your Leather Goods

I’ve been covering the luxury beat for a few years now and, while my focus is largely on timepieces, I do keep abreast of other luxe categories.

It also marked the release of a running sneaker from Converse called the Thunderbolt, which now, over three decades later, sees new life […]

A Balanced Diet of Color and Style from New Balance

One thing about sneakers, some colorways work exceptionally well, while some just miss the mark. A shoe might sport colors that should, theoretically, go well with each other, yet still look really bad. There are those brands, on the other hand, who do colors sublimely well, like New Balance.

Chuck Taylors Get Fruity for Summer

Following last year’s Andy Warhol collection featuring the pop artist’s iconic banana print, Converse continues its tropical theme with the recent release of the oddly-named Chuck Taylor All Star Book Stripe.
