Any smart sneakerhead will tell you that a snowstorm means high-quality leathers and suedes must retreat to the closet until the weather blows over. No risk in ruining a great pair over something as silly as snow. But still, what to wear? In the past the arrival of bad weather meant chucking on some rubbers (no, not those rubbers) with only one goal in mind; staying dry.

What I’m Wearing

What you know about Clae?

What you know about Clae?

Whether you care or not, I’m sharing what are on my feet today: Clae – Diego. More than anything, I just want to talk about the Clae brand. 16 models deep, Clae has been around for a few years now and is quickly climbing the ladder in the slightly more upscale sneaker category. This might sound nerdy even for sneakerheads, but my favorite thing about Claes are their shape. You need to try on a pair for yourself.
