Within the realm of tennis shoes it's usually Stan Smith and his iconic three perforated stripes that get all the love. I'm a Rod Laver man though. Arguably the cleanest most classic sneaker silhouette ever, Adidas was wise to choose it as the focus for the latest round of Consortium 3-Way collaborations. While there's some great versions by perennial sneaker giants Undefeated, Goodfoot and VA, for me it doesn't get better than Wood Wood's. The Danish brand has always had a knack for fantastically simple designs with their footwear and this one's no reason. Canvas is something that isn't used on footwear enough in my opinion, it's durable, looks good and easy to maintain. As for the colour, you know we love navy and with a nubuck lining and 3 different lace options (white, navy and red) you've got one of the best pieces of footwear in a while. Like me, you might not be much of a sneaker wearer anymore but pulling these out of the closet every now and again would be so easy.Ransom

Well we are about to hit the double digits for our monthly issues. It's both big and seemingly small in perspective. Only 10? Really? That's nothing vs. That's right, 10 great issues covering the menswear market unlike any magazine, printed or online. I feel like things have developed in the direction I wanted so far which is a great feeling. A lot more in the pipeline and well we are still pretty new, I am very pleased to be able to deliver some pretty interesting editorial content on a regular basis. Of course without you readers it wouldn't be possible, so I'll be thanking you for a long time. Okay, issue 10. We have the full Common Projects spring/summer collection to show you, we spoke to new designer of the year nominees Shipley & Halmos, we got behind the Italian canvas for a deep look at Mismo and their bag collection. We also let our love for sneakers sneak back out with a pretty interesting interview with Eddie Cruz and James Bond in correlation with the latest collaboration with Puma. There are a couple more gems in the issue including a Canadian history lesson so stay tuned for the release next week. Also, I know there are a lot of new readers, so catch up and read Issue No. 9 before it vanishes into our labyrinth of unorganized archives.
