NikeLab has successfully resurrected the ACG line and it’s latest release comes in the form of the innovative Special Field Boot (SFB). This lightweight boot is perfect for the winter months as it features a water resistant Flyknit upper that complemented with premium leather. To finish off the piece is a mesh sockliner and rugged Phylon Free sole for comfort and support. You’ll also spot subtle reflective accents, along with Flywire lacing and pull tabs at the tongue and heel.
Today, Timberland is set to release a limited edition of their iconic 6-inch boot that will exclusively be available in Canada. In honour of the year, only 2,016 pairs of the premium red nubuck boots will be made. What sets these boots apart is the black leather padded collar with a black and metallic gold woven heel tab, along with the 18K plated gold eyelets and lace keeper. Finally, the tree on hangtag chain is emblazoned in 18K gold, while the laces shine with reflective gold fleck.
In terms of functionality, there is 400 grams of PrimaLoft insulation for warmth and exclusive Anti-Fatigue Technology leather footbed with gold foil logo. As always, the nubuck upper is waterproof making it perfect for inclement weather. You’ll also receive the boots in a special packaging with red maple leaf and tree logo and paper in box
The boots will be available at selected Foot Locker’s in Canada and Champs Sports in Toronto.
You’ve seen Todd Snyder’s Fall 2016 collection during New York Men’s Fashion Week, now take a look at the collaborative footwear that the designer has designed with Cole Haan. The Cortland Boot made its way down the runway in three styles: a Dark Brown Suede, Sand Suede and Black Waterproof Leather. The boot is crafted with premium materials, while the sole incorporates Cole Haan’s proprietary Grand.ØS innovation platform which is astonishingly lightweight, adaptively flexible and responsively cushioned.
We can’t wait until these come out later this year!

Getting dressed for the Winter is a balancing act of sorts. You layer up and then you’re very warm and cozy as you step out into the frigid landscape but then at some point you will have to go inside. That’s when you immediately regret wearing those thermal HEATTECH Long Johns from Uniqlo or wearing a turtleneck under your woolen crewneck sweater. You then start shedding said layers.
The same could be said when it comes to winter footwear, sometimes lugging around in heavy winter boots isn’t the most sensible thing to do when its forecasted to be a mild day. Luckily, our favourite sneaker companies have been “winterizing” some of our favourite silhouettes. Thanks to the waterproof/weather resistant uppers and gusseted tongues, you are now ready for the slush, salt, and ice that you may inadvertently step in. Although, that doesn’t mean these “sneakerboots” should be our go-to in all conditions, it just means that we have more style options for winter dressing.
With that being said, we picked out a few of our favourite sneakerboots and boots that would be appropriate to wear depending on the temperature!
After the successful release of the fragment design and Nike Roshe LD-1000, Hiroshi Fujiwara has reworked the silhouette of the sneaker once more for 2016. This time the Roshe LD-1000 and Roshe Cortez are blended together to make the new Roshe Daybreak. The obsidian colourway remains consistent along with the white midsole, laces and tongue. The change especially seen in the toe box, which is wrapped in suede.
The fragment x Nike Roshe Daybreak will officially release on January 28th.
Most of us know that Clark Originals Wallabee boot is a classic but there is also another pair from the brand that we should take a closer look at. The Weaves is a slightly tamer, more low-key iteration of the Wallabee. The ankle height moccasin-like shoe is made with a soft suede finished with a crepe sole. We particularly love the silhouette for its cleaner aesthetic!
The sneaker you see above is the newest silhouette from New Balance and it was designed in commemoration of their 110th anniversary. The ML2016BK was imagined by NB Tokyo’s design authority, the clean aesthetic of the piece hints to the future but maintains the heritage that is embedded with the sportswear brand. The upper features premium materials such as a smooth cowhide upper, pebbled leather accents and perforated lining with memory foam insoles. You’ll also notice a reflective 3M stripe at the heel.
New York streetwear label, Mighty Healthy, has taken Reebok’s Furylite Chukkas and created a version worthy for the mild winter temperatures. The sneaker features an upper constructed from navy suede and premium micro-perforated leather. While an eye-catcing dark blue speckling can be seen throughout the midsole.
