GQ: CLAE Mixes Lightweight Soles With Rugged Silhouettes
Thursday, October 17, 2013

It's an age old problem. Hard-soled shoes and boots are built to take a beating, but they're often super heavy. Sneakers provide a balance of comfort and style, but sometimes you wish they were just a little more dressed-up. Good thing CLAE's latest collection of EVA-soled shoes address both problems. We're fast fans of the Oscar wingtip sneaker ($150), which combines a supple tan leather upper with an off-white sole. Other shoes available include the hiking boot-inspired Starks ($150) and the low-top Gordon ($105). The entire collection's available now at -GQ
