As we just brought you the hi-top training boot from Common Projects yesterday, we’re sure you’ve gotten a little acquainted with the brand and their luxurious yet minimalistic design. I always liked how the only branding on any pair was the signature style number on the side of the heel. Check out the complete Fall 2009 collection after the jump. (more…)

With the direction of Selectism, we bring you Kris Van Assche‘s S/S 2010 footwear lineup. “Van Assche continues to refine his theories on footwear design while keeping the overall aesthetic in line with prior seasons. Both the high top and low top sneakers in the collection feature an interesting lacing system. In terms of colors they kept it simple, which was a good move. On top of the sneakers, Van Assche also presents some nice suede loafers and lace-ups, along with some interesting high rise technical boots.”

I have a relentless love for high-top sneakers and the passion isn’t going away anytime soon. When coming across these pairs by Master & Co. over at Selectism, I was stuck. The label’s minimalist approach is great, with no other details other than the eyelets and two minor vents on the heel. “Master & Co.’s take on the vintage Japanese baseball shoe may well be my favorite to date. The high-top sneaker features a beautiful molded rubber sole and top cap that wrap the shoe in your choice of three colors – military green, burgundy, or navy blue.”

While browsing some of Milan Fashion Week‘s Spring 2010 collections, I came across I Love LV‘s spotlight on the Louis Vuitton‘s footwear lineup. When describing the label’s Spring 2010 display, Tim Blanks said, “There were prints that suggested worn urban surfaces, and striking footwear that looked like graffitied sequins.”

Part of New York Times‘ 1-in-8 Million series, “The Sneaker Connoisseur” focuses on sneaker addict Jesse Villanueva. The man’s got over 150 pairs of some of the most timeless kicks to ever (or never) see the light of day. He’s 32 and he’s admitted to hiding shoes from his wife, knowing what will happen if she sees another box enter the collection. He now serves “sneaker heads” at Alife Rivington Club and calls Park Slope, Brooklyn home. Yes, he’s everything his current 15-25 year-old regulars aspire to be.

Golden Goose knows exactly how to deliver the goods. Their Ale sneaker that Selectism tipped us off to is a great white high top for the summer time. Its already-worn look is exactly the look we weren’t going for. Until we saw these. Now, I can’t think to go to a fresh white pair of tennis sneakers that bring tears to my eyes when harmed ever-so-slightly. “Freshly stained to look like you walked over fresh tarmac, the Golden Goose Ale sneaker is available for that person who simply cannot stomach getting their own kicks dirty.”
