M.Gemi has been one of my favorite footwear brands since its men's line launched about a year ago (its women's line launched a year before that). Specializing in modern takes on classic designs, M.Gemi's shoes are handmade in Italy and a direct-to-consumer sales model ensures unparalleled quality at their price point. Offering some of the best looking shoes around, M.Gemi keeps things fresh by dropping a new model every Monday—shoppable on their website or inside their Soho showroom.
My favorite new release for SS17 is The Tono sneaker. Perfect for the warm summer months, a perforated nubuck leather upper lets your feet breathe without losing its shape. The nubuck itself is the softest I've seen on a sneaker, with an almost velvety texture—making The Tono elegant enough to wear with a suit or spruce up jeans and a blazer like I did. Wherever your summer travels take you, this mid-top beauty is sure to elevate your look.
