Complex: CLAE and Steven Alan Have Investment Footwear You Can Actually Afford
Monday, September 23, 2013

Investment footwear is the way to go to make it through fall and winter, but, like the name suggests, it can run you into debt real quick. A great pair of shoes can easily run you over $300 dollars and counting, but then you're never going to have money to actually leave your pad and, you know, wear the joints. Steven Alan is a brand that is definitely aligns itself with quality, and its collaboration with CLAE for fall/winter 2013 is limited, well made, and something you can actually afford. At $180, the suede and Vibram-soled Strayhorn is a boot that hits the right price point but doesn't make you sacrifice quality just because you want something that looks stylish this season. The mid-cut boots come in a navy and gravel suede and only 300 per style were produced. Unlike other sparsely-produced ventures, these are also options you'll wear with everything. So there's no need to keep these as your every-so-often kicks, and details such as D-ring lace loops gives these classy boots a rugged feel, too. -Complex
