The subject of today’s post? The Vulcanizer Work Oxford High-Top Sneakers, a boot-sneaker hybrid that looks as tough and stylish as your favorite pair of leather boots … while simultaneously existing in the realm of the best men’s high-top sneakers. Don’t believe me? Read on. Japanese brand Vulcanizer is a new addition to the lineup over at Huckberry, a site that knows a thing or two about curating menswear essentials. It’s really no surprise, then, that the Vulcanizer Work Oxford High-Top Sneakers are unique, versatile and rugged — all at once.
It’s gotta start with the classic moc toe construction and vulcanized sole, two touches that surely make the Vulcanizer Work Oxford High-Top Sneakers a seriously ready-made addition to your list of fall style essentials, if ever I’ve seen one. The cotton canvas upper is also water-resistant, a key feature that ought to come in mighty handy whether you keep it simple (classic dark denim and a grey crewneck sweater) or a little more stylish (a white Oxford and khaki chinos at the office). Either way, the Vulcanizer Work Oxford High-Top Sneakers are going to hold up — to say the least.
Make no bones about it, Vulcanizer has certainly taken their time with the Work High Oxford — designed in Japan and made in Romania, you just don’t see sneakers nowadays like the Vulcanizer Work Oxford High-Top Sneakers and everything they’ve got going for ’em. Available in three colorways (I like the Brown Work High Oxford the best), these sneakers are durable enough to wear on a light day hike along with a waxed trucker jacket and tough work pants, yet stylish enough to wear to your favorite bar alongside casual style staples like a rugged denim jacket and a classic chambray shirt for the season. The Vulcanizer Work Oxford High-Top Sneakers are also a steal in terms of price, clocking in at under $150. That price for a pair of durable sneakers that wear like boots? Sounds just great to me. The moc toe construction is also cool and classic, simply perfect for fall. You should certainly shoot to wear the Vulcanizer Work Oxford High-Top Sneakers to your next football tailgate or brewery visit — they’ve got that rugged sensibility that’ll fit right in alongside dark indigo denim and a rugged long-sleeve henley. So, how’s that sound for your next fall footwear purchase? Easy enough, right?
