The Stylish, Lightweight Wolverine Sneakers Every Guy Needs

As we’ve mentioned before, a wardrobe isn’t complete without a pair of hard-wearing leather boots to see you through years of muck and rain. But until Wolverine’s new 1000 Mile Original Sneaker, that kind of durability wasn’t expected from a pair of casual kicks.

 

These shoes show that the 135-year-old American bootmaker can hang with even the trendiest streetwear brands.


5 Pairs of Stylish Dad Sneakers That Will Instantly Upgrade Your Look

The sneakers take their name from Wolverine’s legendary 1000 Mile Boot, and they share that shoe’s signature curved collar and stitch pattern.

They’re also made in the company’s factory in Big Rapids, Michigan, where four shades of soft, unlined Horween leather are sewn to lightweight Vibram rubber soles.

A technique called cupsole construction, which effectively fuses the sole to the upper, keeps the sneakers feeling supportive—though it also means that you can’t resole them.

But that’s fine, because these things are built to outlast any shoe in your closet.

5 Lightweight Sneakers for When You Can’t Wear Sandals This Summer

Ditch the overengineered running shoes. These light, comfortable sneakers are perfect for lazy summer activities—and can be crushed between beach reads in your weekend travel bag.


8 Colorful Pairs of Spring Chinos, and How to Wear Them

1. Tretorn x Andre 3000 Benjamin Overdyed Nylite

These retro canvas sneaks are reborn, with help from the rapper of “So Fresh, So Clean” fame. Seems appropriate: The Nylites are both, thanks to an uncluttered canvas upper with a single crisp painted logo.

2. Chuck Taylor All Star Perforated Low Top

A classic, updated for hot summer days. Diamond-shaped cutouts bedeck the cowhide-suede uppers of these low-top Chucks. They don’t just look cool—they keep your feet cooler, too.

3. Phil Lace

The suede-and-canvas Phil features a casual easy look, but it’s sneakily capable should you want to wander off the sidewalk. The low-profile but high- traction outsole and a sweat-wicking upper lend an assist in long after-work rambles.

4. Deerupt

They look dropped from space, but the Deerupts have roots on Earth: The grid motif comes from Adidas’ 1980s running shoes. Here the mesh gives its stretchy upper a socklike fit. A bonus: That upper crushes down to minimize luggage space.

5. Nohea Moku

Water-ready shoes tend to be homely; not so with these, which can go from the office to an impromptu after-work paddle. The quick-drying fabric upper keeps a low profile, while drainage ports and siping in the outsole provide grip on wet surfaces.

3 Lightweight Sport Coats to Class Up Your Summer Look

During summer, unconstructed sport coats will make you look—and, more importantly, feel—like the coolest guy in the room.

Every guy benefits from a well-fitting sport coat. But when the temperatures spike in summer, traditional jackets can turn into an oppressive sauna.


The 10 Light-Weight Fabrics to Wear This Summer

There’s a time and place for seersucker, but if you really want to elevate your look during those dog days, you need an unconstructed coat. Unlike most jackets, these thin variations have little or no lining, so they’re light and comfortable in the heat. Plus, in neutral shades, like those seen here, they’ll work well with the rest of your summer wardrobe—yes, even your T-shirts.


10 Key Pieces You Need for Summer

6 Lightweight Jackets Every Guy Needs in the Summer

We get it: the whole point of summer is that you get to leave your jacket at home. But there are arguments to doing the contrary: not only will lightweight jackets pull your look together, but the comfort of having an extra layer once the temperature dips at night makes them a good option. (Plus, having somewhere to store your headphones, pocket knife, pens, and sunglasses that isn’t the pocket of whatever pair of pants you’re wearing is always a welcome thing.) Sure, don’t bring a jacket for those miserable sweaty triple-digit days, but a jacket at the office will save you from office air conditioners, cold conference rooms and any last-minute after-work plans that might creep up.

Resort 2016 Trend: Lightweight Suits

Suits once implied a lean, ladylike skirt and a crisp jacket — that now-vintage look of the Ladies Who Lunch. But the concept has evolved considerably to include walking shorts or legginglike pants and culottes matched with blazers, cropped jackets and even vests. For the resort season, anything goes. Adding to the freshness: plenty of surface interest courtesy of lightweight pinstripes, seersucker and blurred plaids.
