Greats Expectations

These Are Nice Shoes. They’re for Your Feet.

Give us your foot.

This little piggy went to market, this little piggy stayed home...


Wait, no. This feels weird.

Take your foot back, put a shoe on it and pretend that never happened.

We were just trying to figure out the best way to segue into Greats Brand. Which, apparently, is just a handful of easy-on-the-eyes, vintage-looking shoes from two LA- and NYC-based guys, available online now.

We’re not saying these are going to be your new go-to shoes for those “Hey, look at me, I’m all laid-back” moments, but... okay, that’s exactly what we’re saying. Think deerskin leather uppers and waxed-cotton laces and Italian rubber soles and other things that somehow become rather dashing when applied to a shoe.

But no, you’re probably not going to slip these on for a first date. Unless your first date is in Piedmont Park. Then you could definitely pull off those red-and-white canvas low-tops. Or the blue-and-white ones. Or the white-and-white ones. Not going to get away from the white here.

Then just do things. Play a lawn game. Drink something out of a copper mug. Later, hit the showers, roll up your pants and unleash these things on an unsuspecting patio.

Or a suspecting one.
