Okay, we fully acknowledge that man sandals (sometimes referred to as mandals) are tough to wear. That said, when done correctly -- even with simple flip-flops -- they can make a summer look that much better.
When it comes to everyday footwear, what's a SF gal to do? We work, dine, bike, dance, drink, explore, and play -- and we need comfortable, beautiful footwear that supports such a charged lifestyle. Well, ladies, meet your new favorite wedges.
In this rain, fellas, your Chucks simply won't cut it. And even with copious layers of waterproofing spray, we'd be hesitant, too, to step out in our favorite leather loafers. Luckily, designers are making great use of rubber, creating modern, waterproof footwear like you've never seen before.
With overcast skies rolling in, add a little kick to your step with a pair of bright laces. These six classics with a twist range from business casual (subtle blue-on-black action), to dramatic, head-turning laces for the more daring San Francisco man. For an easy alternative, try switching out the laces (and resole, if needed) to updated your favorite pair.
Rain, rain, go away!
We can sing and wish it away all we want, but any SF girl knows we're in for our annual spring showers. The upside? Rainy weather is one trend that keeps coming back, so investing in a good pair of rain boots is a definite must.
Let's take a moment to thank Kate Moss, for launching the Wellie trend, back in 2006, when she made muddy Hunter rain-boots look sexy, with a pair of micro-mini shorts (Of course she did!). Designers and fans quickly took note, and what was once a childhood accessory for jumping in puddles, suddenly boomed as trendy adult footwear.
