Five Dope Nautical Sneakers For 2010
The nautical trend has been a winner for countless summer seasons now. We see brands revamping and adding twists to the classic breezy look, making it hot in the streets, not just when you’re chilling at sea.
We gathered five sneakers that reflect the classic, outdoorsy yet polished look associated with this trend:
Left to right:
Hampton Low by Radii: This low-top sneaker’s color combo is what makes it stand out. The camel-colored pebble leather, combined with navy waxed canvas provides a rich, preppy look, while the thick white sole gives it a street feel. Available in July 2010.
Cinque C by Gourmet: Keeping up with their focus on quality basics, Gourmet introduces the Cinque C, made of cotton canvas upper with full-grain vegetable tanned leather side panels. This is one smart sneaker for the summer. Available now.
Straight Jacket by Radii: Seen on stars like Trey Songz and Jason Derulo, Radii took one of their most popular designs and cleaned it up. Using a solid brick color, and leaving out the flashy patent leather details provides for a more classic looking Straight Jacket. Available in July 2010.
Military Hi by Generic Surplus: Inspired by an actual vintage Italian military shoe, this sneaker has a simple high top design, in a canvas and suede combo. Available now in various colors.
Chukka Stripes by Keds: A refreshing new style for the classic Keds brand, this lace-up striped bootie has a simplistic design with mid-top height. Available now.
