Best Solid Sneaker: Based out of Italy, Stylmartin understands that ugly products simply won’t be worn, no matter how well they perform. The Chester is an all-leather high-top with a casual style that should quickly replace your ubiquitous Chucks when scraping pegs. The leather is full grain for abrasion resistance and is water repellent, and a waterproof and breathable lining lies beneath to make the Chester all-weather friendly.
Forma Urban Touch Dry Shoes
Best Athletic Look: If something a little more athletic-looking is what your wheelhouse demands, the Forma Urban Touch Dry Shoes are the kicks for you. Looking like an Air Jordan VI and XIV hybrid, the Urban Touch features an oil-treated full-grain leather and Cordura upper with double-density rubber sole. Reinforced ankle protection is injected into the upper while a plastic shifter pad is woven into the toe cap. All protection is CE rated and Forma backs their boots with a 12-month warranty. We don’t know if these will help you dunk, but we’re pretty sure you could catch some air, with the right amount of throttle.
