December 13, 2019 Briefings By

Today in Gear is our daily roundup of all the latest product announcements, drops and deals. Comments or concerns? We’d love to hear from you at tig@gearpatrol.com.

The right pair of shoes is the foundation of any fit, and the determining factor in the longevity of your day. The Gunnar double monk is stylish, sophisticated and will keep you feeling fresh on your feet. This statement pair of shoes will take you wherever you’re going and are made of full-grain Buttero leather uppers that are both supple and firm. They also feature a leather padded footbed to give you supreme comfort. The outsole of the Gunnar is a rugged and lightweight EVA and leather mini-lug. The Gunnar is available in a few different colorways with beautiful patina and burnish, so there is something to fit everyone’s taste. We’re partial to the Chocolate Pebble, and you can take 25% off a pair for yourself with code GUNNARGP25.
