At some point in your sneaker career, there will be a point where you will have to concede that you can no longer turn up to family events, weddings, funerals and the like in sneakers – fact! But it's okay, it's not all bad news. Thanks to the good folks at Clarks there are options to progress your style from 15-year-old lad to respectable, middle-aged sneaker aficionado. Take these 'Bronze' Beckery Hike Boots as a prime example; rich leather upper, leather lining, plantation sole, and styling that won't make your granny cringe at the attitude (raditude) of your bubbles. We're not even saying that you have to wear them everyday, it's just wise to have the option stashed in your cupboard for when the necessary times come-a-calling. Take the leap of faith, hit up Kith NYC to suss the details.
