It’s no secret that we are big fans of smart sneakers over at Gentleman’s Journal. A true hero item in any man’s wardrobe, these versatile shoes will help you dress for a heatwave in the office, and can take you effortlessly from the boardroom to the bar. If you’re looking to invest in a pair (or three), then we recommend you turn to North-89.
More specifically, we recommend you invest in its signature No-1 – Napa 35 pair. Part of North 89’s Essential Collection, the sneakers are made from butter soft Italian Napa Batida leather, sitting on a thin Italian margom cup sole. The matching white waxed cotton laces and white calfskin lining give these shoes a super clean, simple and sophisticated look and feel.
Gentleman’s Journal says:
“Finally! A smart trainer brand that is both reasonably priced and produces products that stand the test of time. And it’s not only time — these are reliable, hardy sneakers that you can wear day-to-day, and from day to night, without even a twinge of discomfort.”
