What color shoes go with what color pants?

It’s a well-known fact that something in the Y chromosome makes it more difficult for men to properly match colors.  Yes you have mastered wearing black dress shoes with your only suit but with today’s growing selection of different colored pants not only are you looking more like your wife/girlfriend, you have to actually think about what color shoes to wear.

Thanks to Justin Jeffers, The Fine Young Gentleman you no longer have to think.  Just look at this handy spreadsheet published in Business Insider and walk out of the house with confidence that you won’t embarrass yourself.

Knit soccer boots taking over the pitch


March is a big month for both Nike and Adidas as they are set to launch their latest in footwear technology on the soccer pitch.  With the upcoming releases of the Adidas Samba Primeknit and Nike Magista, knitted athletic footwear is primed to be the next big thing.

Nike applies their flyknit woven upper currently featured in their running sneaker line in combination with a NikeSkin outer layer.

Adidas promises a second-skin like fit that utilizes a one-piece knitted upper featuring a high precision coating that provides the strength, protection and waterproofing of a conventional boot.

Knitted elements are popping up more and more in the Nike and Adidas lines. Following the movement towards minimalist footwear, knitted uppers claim to fit more like a sock while the fabrics have been engineered to not only have the necessary durability and support but also offer flexibility, breathability and a more custom fit.

What have your experiences with knitted athletic footwear been?  Let the ShorteesStyle community know.
