TGIF Shopping: Visionary Boot By Brave Gentleman

Visionary Boot - Brown Every man needs a good pair of boots that will age gracefully through more than one winter. While we appreciate leather, the Visionary Boot (100 percent vegan) by Brave GentleMan can hold up just as well as the best calfskin on the market. We are not suggesting you change your mind about throwing a steak on the grill, but these boots give you a wardrobe option you can feel good about. They are 100 percent vegan, sustainable and fair labor.

They are manufactured in Portugal in worker-friendly factories too. The boots come in brown, black or patent and run $304 a pair.

These are the most high-end G-SHOCK watches…yes, you read that right
G-Shock offers high-end watches
G-SHOCK MRG-BF1000R-1A 'Frogman' In Titanium on model

Two things can certainly co-exist together without there being any friction: toughness and luxury, ruggedness and refinement. While G-Shock has never been thought of as a brand that dominates the highest echelons of haute horlogerie, especially with Rolex and Tudor out there, that doesn't mean they don't have their own high-end watches.

G-Shock began as Casio's vision for a durable watch after engineer Kikuo Ibe developed the first G-Shock in 1983. Apparently, he felt like traditional watches were too fragile, and he had a point, considering what the brand has come up with thus far. Over the years, G-Shock watches evolved and started incorporating advanced features like shock resistance, water resistance, and an array of sensors.
