While shoes from huge brands like the Yeezy Boost 350s and UNC Jordan 1s are long since sold out, many of the best shoes are still waiting to be purchased, depending on your size. If you missed out on a new pair of kicks for the holidays, this is your chance to lace up something fresh for the new year.

Beast Mode x Greats


As if Greats’ black and gold collaboration with Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch wasn’t appealing enough, these chukkas are built with an NFC/Bluetooth LE enabled chip with unique information about your pair in the corresponding app. It’s a great way to connect with other sneaker collectors, as well as verify what you have is the real deal.

Adidas Xeno


These didn’t sit around long the first time the impressive Xeno material hit Adidas sneakers, but the line has only grown since the beginning of December, and now includes basketball sneakers, clothing, and even colored patterns. The material is matted and shimmery to the naked eye, but a photo of the shoes shows off an explosion of color. You have to see it to believe it.

Woolrich Lane Boot


Not everyone is looking for colorful sneakers or Seahawks-related garb, however, and for the more understated among us there’s Woolrich. The Lane boots are seriously high quality, with a suede upper by prestigious UK tannery Charles F. Stead, and a sturdy vibram outsole that’s ready for anything from hiking to bar crawling. They’re also supremely comfortable, and will quickly become a favorite in any lineup.

Converse Chuck 2


There’s nothing more classic than a pair of Chucks, but what were cutting edge materials in 1917 are no longer considered as comfortable. In response, Converse released the Chuck Taylor All Star II. The redesigned pair sports the same look, but boasts a slew of under-the-hood improvements. From the canvas quality to the insole support, everything has been tailored for comfort, without touching the All Star’s classic style.

The 6 Best Bike Shoes For Men in 2022

This summer, we can enjoy the fresh air of the outdoors on our two-wheeled bikes. When you have an opportunity for a bike ride, you've got to have a pair of durable shoes that honor the occasion. You can’t just wear your everyday sneakers if you’re putting in the miles for neighborhood excursions or essential errands. Owning appropriate bike shoes that give support makes the experience a lot better. Generally speaking, we've tried to identify styles work as well at the office or at home as they do on the streets. We tried to stay away from the chunky styles favored by those guys in the padded shorts, zip-up shirts, and serious bicycle helmets that just blew by you at 50 miles an hour on their pricey carbon fiber bicycles. When you can walk into your home without the clickity-clank of cleats, then you know you laced up the right pair of bike shoes. Here are a few of our favorites.

West Major’s Crafted Shirts Are the Latest Chapter in the Story of Western Wear

Led Zeppelin, Jerry Garcia, and Pink Floyd. The Allman Brothers and Lynyrd Skynyrd. A strolling George Harrison across the cover of The Beatles' Abbey Road. All these men, these bands, may be iconic to classic rock, but they have another thing in common: They were fans of and wore the classic Western shirt. It wasn't just rock; folk, blues, and many other genres' luminaries, over the course of a decade from the mid-'60s to the mid-'70s, were photographed wearing the classic American style. “If you go down all the genres of music," Nick Wetta, founder of West Major and maker of the best damn Western shirts in the world, tells The Manual, "you’ll find guys wearing Western shirts.”

Wetta, 31, is not a cowboy. Far from it — he's a self-described nerd who grew up in Arizona with no natural athleticism, but a passion for drum fills. His heroes were musicians, not horsemen, and to match their look, he'd pick through the racks of thrift-store pearl-snap shirts trying to find the perfect silhouette. "The fits were all over the place, and a lot for them were old and falling apart," he says. "But when I would find one that fit right, it was a grand slam.” Economy was only one reason for his secondhand sources; another was that those old shirts in photos were neither made nor marketed anymore; instead, the modern iteration, with its blousey fit and boring plaids, was geared toward Midwestern farmers. “And that is awesome," he says. "[But] it felt like there weren’t any Western brands for guys like me.”
