Classic Shoes with Comfortable Sneaker Soles: Hydrogen-1

[RoyalSlider Error] No post attachments found.

Many men love traditional men’s shoes for they are classic and never go out of style. I personally love handmade goodyear welted by Meermin. But truth to tell, although these shoes look great and come with quality that can withstand the test of time, they are not generally made for full-day heavy duty running and your daily shuffling (sorry, LMFAO.) On top of that, they also require a rather uncomfortable¬†breaking-in period.

Love the classic look but want something more athletic? Enter Hydrogen-1.

Think double-monk strap with sneaker soles; classic brogue with sneaker soles; lace up boots with sneakers soles. In shorts, classic shoes with a special sneaker soles treatment.

We can’t really say the shoes fall under the range of “affordable” as the prices range from USD 335 to USD 415. But hey, “comfortable” costs something, and these too are Italian made shoes. While we’re at it, this is Carven’s Black Classic Leather Derbys.

The founder has a cool name, too: Hero Nakatani. He could be Hiro Nakamura‘s cousin in Heroes spin-off. Sci-fi chic or what? (By the way, Heroes will be back in 2015)

Head over and check out Hydrogen-1. If you already owned a pair or two, let us know your thoughts.
