The Manual: A Lighter Outlook On Footwear
Monday, October 21, 2013

Right now’s the perfect time to step out and enjoy the fall weather. While you want to tear it up outside, your shoes might be slowing you down. CLAE, a footwear brand devoted to innovation and design, has evolved the sole of the athletic shoe for a much lightweight feel. CLAE's new soles can be seen featured on their Gordon, Oscar and Starks styles. You might be asking yourself by now what a little ol’ sole can do for your shoe game. The answer is plenty. Through the magic of technology, these shoes put more air between you and the ground, meaning less stress on your feet during your many adventures. The best part is that you don’t have to sacrifice your personal style for some comfort. Trust, some brands will offer you the same relief on your little piggys as long as you don’t mind looking like you’ve jacked your grandpa’s orthotics. With the Starks, you get a classic heavy work boot look without the actual heavy feeling. With the Oscar, you get the sleek brogue boot style that every dapper dude needs this season. Finally with the Gordon, you get the simple slip ons that you can wear casually with virtually anything. Basically everyone can enjoy the beauty of the blown EVA outsole.
