Have you heard of The Greats? They’re a new-ish sneaker brand that was born in Brooklyn, with a direct to consumer model. Initially they were just a mens’ footwear company (GQ wrote that these sneaks were best for ‘any resident of earth’ haha) but now……they’ve launched a women’s line. And?
If you follow me on Instagram (@shanachristine), you’ve already seen me swooning over the blush pink color and seriously cushy comfort. But it’s a sentiment worth repeating: these are very comfortable sneakers. Like the wear-without-socks kind. In fact, these might be the Most Comfortable Leather Sneakers I’ve Ever Worn.
Oh, and Mike likes his, too. (Mikey likes them! He likes them!)
Outfit Details – Shana
jacket: old James Perse sweatshirt blazer, but this Olivia Moon knit blazer is similar (just size down for a shrunken fit)
tshirt: Maje Tshirt with dot detail (black is sold out, but the red and ivory are on crazy sale!!!! This is my most-worn date night tee. So much so that I have both the red and black. Wearing a size 1 for reference)
belt: old, but loving this white Topshop belt
sneakers: The Greats Royale in blush – be sure to check the sizing chart, the sizing is a little tricky. For example, I’m a 6.5 (which isn’t offered), but found that the 7 (aka a euro 37) fit much better than the 6 (a euro 36).
Outfit Details – Mike
jacket: Mike’s gotten a ton of wear out of this short, black jacket. His is long gone, but this Topshop bomber, Express bomber, or Banana Republic Harrington Jacket are all good options for a casual date night (or weekend).
sweater: old Joe Fresh, but I’m loving J.Crew’s classic striped long-sleeve tee for guys. Not overly precious.
jeans: Jbrand Kane Slim Straight Jeans (decidedly not skinny jeans….but not so wide that they look like dad jeans)
sneakers: The Greats Royale Nero in black
