Last fall, we were duly impressed by UGG Australia’s continued efforts to step up their men’s shoe game—teaming up with a champ like Tom Brady didn’t hurt. And now they’re back with their newest offering for spring:
The Kaldwell, a chukka/boat shoe hybrid that comes in three spring-friendly shades of burnished nubuck and with custom-made soles from Vibram.
Our love for the chukka in spring is no secret—perhaps it’s their versatility with or without socks—and the Kaldwell is a shining example of spring chukka excellence. It’s the sort of shoe that’ll take you from post-work drinks to a beach weekend without having to worry about your choice in footwear. Our favorite touch is the seersucker lining, which makes them even more barefoot compliant.
You never remember to pack socks anyway.
