I’ve always loved K-Swiss—and, of course, their classic white shoe is already iconic, so no need to push that on you—but these new suede babies are amazing. I love that they’re modified lace-ups made to look like slip-ons. It’s a kind of an East Coast version of a skate shoe you might see out in Montauk. Since falling off my skateboard in 5th grade and being hurled against a tool shelf in the garage, I may just wear them walking the streets of NYC—or, of course, when I’m in LA and ready to “hold court.”—Brian Coats
