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.
