Clae Fall ’09 Collection

I got a sneak peek at Clae’s new fall 2009 collection of shoes and they’ve definitely made quite a strong collection. I guess what I really like about them is that they’ve made some interesting choices when it comes to colors and textures, eschewing from the overly skater shoe look and trying for a more refined style. The top shoe is my absolute favorite, it’s called the Romare and I love the color of the leather. It’s also kind of a chukka boot, I guess, but I’ve been a calling it a high top moccasin. The shoe below it is the Kennedy, and what I love about it is that it’s made from waxed canvas, just like a lot of bags are. I think it gives the ordinarily average, black shoe some nice texture.

    Okay this is completely unrelated but I saw Bowerbirds last night and they rocked. I’m pretty sure I read about them on this blog.

    Keep the good stuff coming!

    @Thor — First off — Ew.

    Second, I own three pairs of Claes in size 13; there’s no distinction in widths, though.

    Third — Ew. Ew. Ew.

    I’m not a fan of the white lining of the sole, I think it’s called the welp of a shoe? Anyways, I find they always get far too dirty. The shoes I currently have now have a black welp with a white lining and even that little white line is getting dirty. I’m awfully picky :/

    Like the shoes though.

    I’ve been wearing a pair of Claes in my regular rotation for about a year now, and they’re just an all around great shoe :) Really well built, comfortable fit and spot on sizing, not to mention they look great
