Today in Gear: Classic Wingtips with an Innovative Sole, the Best Cigar of the Year & More
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
Wingtips have been around for quite some time; so long that the old guard might contend that you can’t improve upon such a longstanding staple. But in recent years, we’ve seen wingtips innovated and changed in a big way, like adding sport tread soles in a variety of wild (sometimes garish) colors. The Martell Wingtips from Johnston & Murphy is a happy medium between longstanding tradition and modern innovation with its fusion of textured leathers and dress styling with a subtle featherweight sport tread. The Martells come in either full-grain leather or oiled nubuck, and all models come with a full leather welt to the rubber sole. The Martells have the classic styling you know with the comfort and performance of a sport tread that you’ll come to love.
