We're totally seeing spots this #FootwearFriday, thanks to the collaboration between Onitsuka Tiger and a small, family owned Japanese textile house named Makumo. The two brands partnered together to create a very special capsule collection for Summer 2015. The result is the striking, low top, unisex Onitsuka Tiger X Makumo Onitsuka Tiger Mexico 66 Sneaker (the capsule collection also features a matching tote bag, which we're personally dying for).

Makumo hand makes all of their incredibly exclusive prints, which are inspired by traditional Japanese culture, with much of their incredible work, craftsmanship and quality, created right out of their home. This collection debuts with the above iconic Mexico 66, available in two very limited edition colors, “Natto Sumi/White” (black/white), and “Natto Kurenai/White” (red/white), and features a unique pattern called Natto, inspired by the Japanese fermented bean (they can't help but remind us of Dalmations as well). Sorry to disappoint you men, but the red is only available in women's sizes......unless you have small feet and can fit a women's size 12.

The Makumo textile house utilizes the finest Japanese loomed canvas from Kurashiki to create their iconic prints, which gives this iconic classic a very eye-catching, modern update. The Onitsuka Tiger logo, along with the Makumo animal are printed on the sockliner, with the signature stripes appearing in a stark white, making the Natto print stand out even more.

Both colors retail for $100.00 each and are available on www.onitsukatiger.com. You may want to get yourself a pair before they are gone.

Converse Jack Purcell II

Some things do get better the second time around.  Converse has updated its classic Jack Purcell silhouette by unveiling the Jack Purcell II.  This update features sueded accents at the upper heel and lining the slightly raised midsole.  Featuring an all leather upper and a reduced toe box bumper and I dub this a winner.  Dare I even say I like the sequel better than the original.  Available now in white and black at KithNYC.com.

Apologies for not giving you your daily dose of footwear fabulousness ladies. I've been a bit under the weather and although I was down for a while, I'm back with some womens shoes that are edgy and cool. We're introducing a footwear brand that's new to Shoeography. Say hello to the Sesto Meucci 213 Wedge Sneakers, an interesting oxford, sneaker, wedge hybrid that combines the spirit of Italian design and craftsmanship with edgy and unique design elements. We love the 213's perforated, light grey leather upper accented with metallic silver patent straps and quarter panel, the contrast of its traditional lace-up silhouette paired with a raised collar, almond toe, and braiding on its slight 1 1/4" wedge heel. Get to know this brand and get yourself a pair for $219.99 at 6pm.com.

Maison Martin Margiela Future High Top Sneakers

Not really known for their prints, the camp at Margiela shakes it up a bit.  Their latest update of the famed Future Hi silhouette has a textural elephant skin surface treatment to the full leather upper and a graphic abstract white lined print laid right on top of it.  This is all anchored by a sturdy black sole for a result that is both familiar and new yet still pure avant Margiela.  Available now at Ssense.com.

Epaulet Full Court 'Couro Cromo' High Trainer 

Clean and pristine does it every time.  These Full Court Couro Como High Trainers from Epaulet are so handsome and exquisitely well-made.  The Couro Como title, which means chrome leather in Portuguese, is appropriately attached to these sturdy cowhide sneakers that have been tanned for more than a month.  High oil and wax in the tanning process give these a rich aniline finish all anchored by the strong Margom rubber sole.  Such a dapper take on sport and luxe and a great addition to wear now right through to the Fall.  Available now in this color way of Steerhide Saddle and Navy from EpauletNewYork.com.

Paul Smith Basso Leather Sneakers

Spring ushered in the color again and the summer just it mature.  So even if you're into all black or mostly black, spruce it up a bit with these Paul Smith Basso Leather Sneakers.  The full upper is supple black leather and accented by deep bottle green leather accents on the upper heel and the entire sole.  It's a pop of color without going extreme.  Available now at Mr. Porter.com.
As a footwear blogger, we get asked quite a few questions, and not always about shoes. One recurring question is, what do you do if wearing either heeled or flat shoes are uncomfortable? Believe it or not, there are some people who, because of their high arches, experience levels of discomfort when wearing shoes. We know this because we have a high arch (our is moderately high), in our case wearing heels are much more comfortable than wearing flats, but we still experience levels of discomfort when some womens shoes don't have proper arch support. For those of you like us, fear not because thanks to Podiatrist, Dr. Steven L. Rosenberg's Instant Arches, you can walk happily ever after in both heels and flats.

Instant Arches provides the necessary comfort, support and pain relief those with high arches need when wearing heels, sandals, flip flops and athletic shoes. The teardrop-shaped Instant Arches (crescent-shaped for sandals), will literally save you from your footwear pain tears. They are available in three different colors: black, tan, and gray, and can be used again and again in your various shoes. We love walking the city during the summer but have had to cut back on our mini walking adventures because of pain, and tired legs, but over the past several days, we've been enjoying our long walks again (in heels, flats, and sneakers), thanks to Instant Arches.

Instant Arches are available on www.instantarches.com for $11.00 a pair, but for shoe lovers like us, we recommend taking advantage of their special deal, which gifts you with a free pair:

Buy 3 Or More, Get 1 Free Pair
