3 NEW SHOES FOR 2019
By Steven Potter, January 7, 2019
New year, new shoes, right? Step into 2019 with our edit of the three freshest footwear styles available on ASOS now. For all you sneakerheads out there, expect a solid Reebook offering that ranks on the coveted, chunky-soled spectrum. Meanwhile, with Valentine's Day rapidly approaching, get your date night 'fit sorted with a smart-casual pick from the iconic Dr. Martens.
River Island snaffle loafers
First up, it’s these slick black loafers from high-street heroes, River Island. Step up your 2019 workwear look by matching the loafers to the accents of a check suit — et voila, you'll be in the running for that promotion in no time. Alternatively, team smart joggers with a tucked-in tee or Oxford shirt for a steezy-but-comfortable date-night look. Handy, considering Valentine's Day is just around the corner...
Dr. Martens 1461 Ghillie shoes
First launched in 1960 as a purveyor of sturdy shoes and boots to work in, Dr. Martens is now a cult footwear icon. For DMs worth sliding into, the original Ghillie style was found in a Japanese second-hand store by the DM design team and brought back from the archives in this updated 1461 format. Bridging that tricky smart-casual gap, wear the Ghillie's with smart pants or channel the brand's punk roots with ripped-up denim instead. Pioneers of the chunky footwear trend, those cleated soles are also an oil and abrasion-resistant throwback to the brand's rich workwear heritage.
Reebok Daytona DMX
Originally released in the '90s, the Reebok Daytona DMX is the daddy of dad sneakers — and, nearly two decades on, the pioneering style is back. Designed by Christian Tresser (he gave us the Aztrek and the Nike Air Max 97 too), its aggressive, sports-inspired silhouette packs some serious steez. Check out this overbranded, white, black and highlighter-pink colorway for proof. Oh, and there’s the brands innovative "moving air technology" in that mega-chunky sole. And, yes, it is as comfortable as it sounds.
