Today in Gear: Classic Wingtips with an Innovative Sole, the Best Cigar of the Year & More


December 20, 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.


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.
