Buying better basics for fall: The Shoes

There’s a chill in the air, the leaves have changed and are falling, and autumn is in full swing. Now you may think that means that it’s time to grab your boots and prepare for winter, but, not just yet.

As someone who grew up in and around Toronto and has lived downtown for 15 years, I can tell you, there are only so many days of the year that snow cover actually plays into my day. So, for me, in the day to day of fall, I want to be comfortable, in some classic sneakers.

Hello K-Swiss.

Just like my long time in Toronto, It’s been a long time I’ve been wearing K-Swiss shoes and really for me, there are two main reasons why; Style and comfort.

Now when it comes to style and comfort, the classic VN in black and white is always my go-to choice.


The first-ever leather tennis shoe, the Classic VN has been reimagined for modern everyday wear with a sturdy leather upper, the classic 5 stripes and a 3-piece toe. Metal D-rings keep the laces in place and ensure all-day support, while a soft EVA midsole provides a comfortable fit for all-day wear. As the indisputable hero of the K-Swiss Classics family, the Classic VN boasts of traditional heritage, while still providing a fresh and modern touch.

Did I mention the perfect fit, the uber comfortable 360 cushion, and the classic style that fits with just about every look?

Well, they offer all that and probably even more, and at under $100 CAD, I think they are the perfect addition to your fall/autumn footwear collection, that will also be perfect to use when spring/summer finally comes around again.

It can be hard to choose what shoes to buy, for what season so I always advise this; make sure to have some classic, monochromatic, well-made pieces that will take you from season to season, year to year, and these babies will do just that!


Stop by K-Swiss today to check out these styles and many more for both men and women.
