Contemporary menswear brand and e-tailer Frank & Oak already has modern men covered on the clothing front, but we all know how a stodgy pair of shoes can ruin a good thing. As a result, the Montreal-based label has launched its first footwear collection for the discerning dude.
Unsurprisingly, the collection of shoes, sneakers and boots draws its influence from the clean lines of Scandinavian design. The country’s stark landscape and contemporary architecture were reference points for the classic slip-ons and lace-ups that have been reimagined with a minimalist spin. The high-top Apollo style ($155 USD) comes in a leather and suede mix, while the classic Parc sneaker ($135) and Charlie slip-on ($95) come in sleek, unadorned leather and suede respectively.
“It can be difficult to find versatile men’s shoes that are well made, on-trend and accessible,” said Ethan Song, co-founder and CEO of Frank & Oak in a statement. “We’ve created a new classic, and we’re confident it will check all of the boxes.” And so are we.
The three aforementioned footwear styles are currently available here, while November will see the launch of a selection of Chelsea boots, brogues and chukkas.
