I don't need to tell you how big of a statement your shoes can make — and since Spring is all about getting outside and strolling the streets, you're going to need a stylish pair of sneakers to brighten up your look while providing ultimate comfort. From classic to colorful to a little bit dressy, we've rounded up the top 10 cool kicks you need for the new season.
This week, a creaky wooden building in the Lower East Side hosts the Capsule trade show where emerging menswear labels get sized up by New York's hippest retailers. Capsule, like any tradeshow, is charged with the energy of the unknown and the anticipation for what could be. One thing is for sure, the era of the urban gentlemen is in full-effect, where even the downtown hipsters will be dressing like dandies, as soon as Odin, Opening Ceremony, and Oak get their hands on these lines. (As an aside, we don't think we've ever seen so many handsome men occupy the same space at the same time. It was like a fourth dimension.) This year's show was sponsored by We Are The Market, a long-time Coutorture partner.
After the jump, our top five favorites at the show and a gallery of the event for your viewing pleasure.
