It's that time again. Time to think about the fall, which is right around the corner. While we're not quite ready to go full on fall footwear, we are very much open to transition footwear. You know, the shoes that you can seamlessly wear now and next month. Today's Shoe of the Day is one of these styles that will take you from summer to fall. The Schutz Rosmari Fishnet Booties boasts everyone's favorite hosiery trend as a design detail - fishnet. The pointed toe Booties features a fishnet mesh upper, tonal cowhide leather trim that frames the back zip, covers the toe box, and the 2 3/4" stacked heel.

Schutz has always created innovative footwear designs and the Rosmari Fishnet is a great example of that. It's going fast, so head over to and score your own pair for $290.00.

Common Projects Black Duck Boots

A great perspective in modern menswear is the taking of familiar staples and tweaking them just enough to make them relevant to a newer generation without sacrificing the tenured goodness that made it what it was.  Common Projects did just that with these Black Duck Boots.  Executed in a pristine supple black leather, these boots take the classic styling of a duck boot with its stitched toe detail and laced shaft.  The brand's all leather choice updates the celebrated boot and the clean wedge sole gives it a modern bump making all for a very cool outcome.  Available now at
Cole Haan X Staple 2.ZERØGRAND Stitchlite

Light as air and you walk on air.  Cole Haan has teamed up with a New York staple named Staple (no pun intended).  The 2.ZERØGRAND Stitchlite shoe is a nice take on the savvy technology that Cole Haan has infused into their footwear with its knit twisted yarn upper that creates the speckled two-tone effect and keeps the upper nice and breathable.  This all done up into those recognizable grey tones with the dashing pops of deep pinky red that is attached to Staple's infamous pigeon icon on the heel tab and flanking the midsole.  Anchoring this whole deal is an EVA midsole, rubber outsole and Grand.ØS Technology in the crisp comfy sole.  Viable for Summer play and taking it right into romps in the Fall.  Available now at

To celebrate the latest luxurious collection, Aethon Ulyse held a private viewing at Aire Ancient Baths & Spa where models were painted gold while wearing heels from the new collection, select styles from the collection decorating the exclusive spa, and a harpist setting the mood for an evening of resplendent leisure as guests fawned over the luxury shoes and took advantage of spa services.

Created by Payden Sewell, founder and creative director of Aethon Ulyse, the footwear brand stresses emphasis on long-lasting comfort, offering each pair with a lifetime warranty guarantee.

I don't mean to be the bearer of bad news or to burst your Summer bubble but here is something new you may need to know against your will.  Summer is halfway over so Fall will be here before you know it and if you've been in the stores lately, autumnal apparel is already in the racks.  With that said you just may want to consider putting boots back on the brain with these Wing-tip Leather Combat Boots from Maison Martin Margiela.  With its full leather upper and shaft, this boot also boasts wing-tip stitching detail, an oversized lug heel and sole and rear shaft pull tab.  It could be a cool seasonal staple to consider.  Not back to your regularly scheduled pool-side daiquiri.  Available now at
