The Material Boy #108
H By Hudson White Canvas Tropic Shoe
With a overdose of big labels, I decided I want to take a small break and look for alternative brands to blog about. Maybe less high-end, less known, less expensive, but definitely high on design:-) I like cult labels:-) Sometimes, they do come up with very strong unique ideas that could inspire a new style or two:-)
While checking out www.oaknyc.com, I came across some really nice items from the new arrivals section. This New York store stocks quite a bit of interesting labels and they do ship internationally, which means you practically can buy anything you like from the website:-)
I am in a shoe mood tonight, so I was paying attention to the shoes they offered. To my delight, I found a cool pair of white canvas tennis shoe that has very interesting details. The most prominent one being the elastic heel which gives it a relaxed and casual touch while making it look special. There are also open studs on the heel portion with a leather flap running across the back. I love these little touches. It looked great when paired with summer white shorts. This is a great alternative for the usual and common converse, addidas, vans etc.
Best of all, it is of a great price. So you dun have to burn a huge hole in your pocket to be chic and trendy for summer.
Retail price: US $168. Where to buy: www.oaknyc.com
