Shooz: So Easy to Be Stylish

shooz samsung csc
The idea behind Shooz is so ideal for travelers that you’ll wonder why someone else hasn’t already thought of this brilliance. Each pair is a shoe base with a top that’s zippered in place. Wear one pair to the airport and simply stash other shoe skins in your luggage without taking up all the space that separate pairs of shoes would require. Just put the Shooz Skins flat in your luggage or backpack—one pair takes up about the space of a t-shirt.

Ready for your own zippered convenience? You’ll soon be able to get a pair when the company launches its Kickstarter campaign. Sign up on their website to be notified of the date.

Here’s how the concept works:

The first step is to choose a sole. Currently there are three varieties: The Urban: classic urban sneaker design for daily wear; The Running: flexible, ergonomic, and well-suited for indoor sports and walks; and The Drive: incredible comfort combined with classy looks and style.

With sole in hand, all you need to do to complete your shoes is zip on a top skin. It’s as easy as zipping up your jacket and makes your wardrobe even more versatile as you can trade out a casual look for something a little dressier. Skin choices include Duilio (The Wingtip), Corsa (The Running), Mocassino (The Slip On), and Stringa (The Lace Up).

This system of interchanging skins with soles allows you to have a bigger shoe wardrobe at a big savings. Once you get your first pair of soles, you can create a new combination of skins at a discount compared to the regular cost of another pair of shoes.

When you want to wash them, you just unzip the skin from the sole and throw it in the wash. The result is deeper cleaning and faster drying.

Chelsea boots are named after the Chelsea district of London where they became fashionable in the 1960s. However, they were invented back in the early 1800s as a variation of traditional English riding boots. They retained the single panel vamp and block heel but shortened the ankle height for comfort and added elastic panels — known as gussets — to make the boots easier to take on and off. The short heel and smooth rounded toe make Chelsea boots extremely versatile. They're sleek enough to wear with suiting and simple enough to wear with jeans. The most alluring factor however, has got to be their ease of use. Being able to easily slip your boots on and off with out bothering to tie laces is the kind of convenience we're looking for in footwear these days. So here are the best Chelsea boots available for men this fall.
