On Your Feet is all about that new shoe feeling- from the first time you open the box until they’re worn into the ground. Sometimes we’ll sift through the constant Air Jordan releases to bring you the gems other people will leave on the shelves, and sometimes we’ll slide on reclaimed leather loafers from Prague, but we’ll always focus on comfortable shoes with appealing and creative aesthetic. So lace up your new kicks and stand on the precipice of adventure, where will we go together?

As we start to near the end of July, it’s inevitable some brands are already looking forward to the fall releases. Luxury footwear brand Filling Pieces certainly is, having shed light on their 2015 Fall/Winter lookbook.

Since the company’s founding in 2009, Guillaume Philibert has turned a small fashion brand into a much sought-after producer of some of the highest quality sneakers around. It all started with Filling Pieces’ first shoe, the Low Top, and the hype has only grown since then.

There are two elements that set the Amsterdam-based brand apart from the rest of the footwear pack – original silhouettes and high quality materials. Both raise the price a little but are ultimately worth it if you’re a fan of high-end sneakers.

Many shoe brands cut corners on design by taking a familiar shape and reimagining it. There may be hundreds of canvas high-tops and Stan Smith lookalikes, but you won’t find anything like that here. The Filling Pieces sneakers are built from the ground up to embody not only modern aesthetic choices, but also support performance improvements.

While Filling Pieces normally opts for more standard materials like full-grain leather and nubuck, this time around some new looks have found their way in from out of left field. There are low tops adorned with 3M material that shines brightly under flash photography with perforated and waxed leathers in the mix as well.

Each pair of Filling Pieces’ exquisite footwear is hand-crafted in Portugal using only the highest quality Italian leathers. They’re a bit pricier than your average sneaker, but end up costing far less than comparable dress shoes. If you’re always trying to look professional while keeping one foot in the casual world, look no further.

You can buy Filling Pieces’ new looks for fall and winter directly from the brand’s store page.

What is old money style? (Plus, how you can achieve the look)
Adopt Grandpa Core with Old Money Style

There is a new trend hitting the style industry that a surprising amount of young people are driving. While the war between Gen Z and Baby Boomers rages on in social issue and economic discussions, a bridge is being built with their clothing. Grandpa core is beginning to land with the youngest group entering the work world as they adopt pleated pants, suspenders, double-breasted jackets, and loafers. While they may rage against the elites online, Gen Z is adopting the old money aesthetic in an attempt to take it for themselves and change the narrative.

Old money style screams class, sophistication, and luxury. While trends may be full of pieces that adhere to the newest looks that go in and out of style, the old-money look sticks to classic pieces that never age out. It invests in basic pieces that may seem boring and plain but combine together to elevate every ensemble to the likes of JFK, Jay Gatsby, and countless others who defined our style in the 20th Century.

These silver rings for men should be added to your accessories arsenal
Our top picks for silver rings for men

Silver rings for men have always felt like some kind of relic from rebellious '90s rock icons like Steven Tyler, or even early-aughts singers like Chad Kroeger (regardless of where you fall on the "Is Nickelback a good band?" question.) Either that or they usually appear as simple engagement rings under a quick Google search. But, silver rings for men have made a comeback, and they're now seen as the ultimate mark of "fashun." From simple, minimalist designs to intricately carved pieces, there is a silver ring to suit every man's taste these days, whether you just want to add a high-end vibe to your outfit or actually draw attention with an eyebrow-raising accessory.

In terms of affordability, silver rings for men perfectly bridge the gap between stainless steel and gold, meaning you can still look stylish without the ensuing buyer's remorse that usually comes with a hefty price tag. So, what if you don't want to be able to knock someone out with all the accessories that the frontman of Aerosmith sports, yet need something a little more noticeable than a simple silver ring with nothing on it? We've got you covered.

This Tag Heuer F1 watch collab might be our favorite nostalgic throwback yet
TAG Heuer partners with Kith for Formula 1 watch
TAG Heuer x Kith Formula 1 watches

In its heyday, the TAG Heuer Formula 1 collection was a sensation, with the '80s and '90s seeing commercial success with over 20 vibrant colors. Ronnie Fieg, founder of Kith, a streetwear brand known for items that take us back to the days when life just seemed simpler, is resurrecting these TAG Heuer watches, though they will cost more than the previous timepieces, with the originals selling for between $130 and $390.

With over 3 million sold, these colorful watches carry a deep sense of nostalgia for millennials, who to this day are a generation seemingly obsessed with the past, and that is why these new TAG Heuer watches will probably sell well once again. Plus, Max Verstappen recently wore one at the Miami Grand Prix, and with the 2-time World Champion's face on something, it always sells big.
