Complex's Top Sneaker Influencers Pick Favorite OTW Styles
Last week our friends over at Complex picked their 25 Must-Follow Sneaker Influencers on Twitter and some of our sneakerhead tweeters in the industry made the cut! We asked a few of these sole specialists to pick their top styles from the Fall 2011 season of the Vans OTW Collection. Shout out to Clyde Edwards aka Sneakerbox Clyde, Ivelisse Cassas aka Sole De Vida and Shoepreme for their selections!
@SneakerboxClyde's pick: The OTW Alomar in Rock Wool
Clyde commented on his pick: The Alomar is the perfect Fall shoe for me because it represents where I'm going with my personal style today. Grey wool is an awesome material to use on a shoe and is a sure win for the fall especially for the colder states. The materials in the upper say a lot, to me it speaks to a higher end consumer. Quality and craftsmanship like that is hard to come by these days without buying into high fashion brands. Wearable with camo, denim, khaki, even seersucker...that's the shoe for me.
@SoleDeVida's pick: The OTW Woessner
Sole expanded on the Woessners: I am truly a lover for classic authentic low pros for women. My eyes were immediately drawn to the silhouette of the Woessner line. The olive, navy, black and grey hues are colors that I love seeing during the fall. While the white solid sole is versatile enough to wear during other seasons, the upper is what truly makes this design a fall sneaker.The choice of different materials used such as premium suede, hemp and wool, to the hidden eyelets with waxed round laces, and inner pigskin lining has definitely given this sneaker an upscale-look with an affordable pickup price for all those males ready to make a fall fashion statement.
@Shoepreme's pick: The OTW Woessner in OliveShoepreme added: The Woessner is my favorite model from Vans OTW Fall lineup. What I enjoy most about this shoe is its simplicity, making it easily wearable for any occasion. Waxed laces, pigskin lining, and an EVA midsole...what else do you need in a shoe? Vans really did their thing with the Woessner; a modern twist on an all-time classic. With a price point that won’t break the bank and all the other praise mentioned above these shoes get two thumbs up!
