The Material Boy #568

Below: Another shoe that I covet for Spring Summer 2013. Dries Van Noten's SS2013 Mens Camouflage Print Vibram Sole Sandals blends both sports and military perfectly together. Love the modern 'hiking+gladiator' design, works great with skinny leg trousers.

Sports infusion looks are abundantly represented on the Spring Summer 2013 runways by many designers. As does the already ongoing Military trend. Dries Van Noten Spring Summer 2013 mens collection takes the best of both of these themes and sends down incredible military sportive ensembles. The collection offers camo printed parkas, loose fitted colour block silk shorts, sporty track jackets and carrot cut trousers (with velcro or zipper hems) matched with some of the best sandals of the season.

My attention however is on this pair of ‘hiking’ style croc embossed leather sandals that features not only a grated vibram sole, but also amazing camouflage print on the sides. The sandals also come with a wide top panel that covers your feet with cut outs on the sides. It’s a modern gladiator design that makes you ‘combat ready’ for your city adventures. I love the navy, black and olive combination which is refreshingly masculine. (This pair is not available in Singapore, but you can find it online at for Euro 487)

For a more sporty version, there is also a strap design that resembles closer to your hiking sandals. The one featured below has a blue and yellow combination which is not exactly my favourite. But Club 21 Mens Singapore stocks a gorgeous olive croc-embossed pair that has more tasteful colours. (Retails for SGD690)

I love both. Especially seeing how they worked with tight leg trouser looks. Just right for SS2013 and also staying ahead of the fashion game.
