When it comes to shopping for new sneakers, there is one place in town I always hit up, Manor. Manor is cross-generational, linking youth and classic culture by offering premium goods for men, women
, and children from a curated selection of brands. Jeremy Davis is the owner and visionary of this local hip shop. He grew up in Las Vegas and moved to AZ in 2000 when he attended ASU. Owning a specialty footwear store has been his dream and that dream came true in the spring of 2016. The shop is located at Uptown Plaza in Central Phoenix (Corner of Camelback Road & Central).
I asked Jeremy to pick his favorite shoes (for men) this season and here is what he recommended:
For the “conservativeish” guy – K Swiss “Classic VN Heritage” –
With a timeless design that’s held court across eras and generations, the Classic VN is a K-Swiss icon. Reissued in its original colorway, the all-white, low top sneaker features a full leather upper with signature elements like a three-piece toe construction, stitched 5 Stripes, D-ring lace up and classic K-Swiss shield branding for a throwback look.
2. Fashion forward guy – Karhu Fusion 2.0 –
KARHU, meaning “bear” in Finnish, is a leading running brand and has provided technical running and outdoor gear for 100 years. With an authentic heritage in athletics and a deep connection to the outdoors, KARHU follows the Finnish principles of design simplicity and running purity. KARHU shoes have been worn on the feet of the greatest Finnish runners, including Paavo Nurmi and five Boston Marathon champions. KARHU shoes and apparel are sold globally at running and lifestyle specialty retailers.
3. Adidas lover – Ultra Boost 4.0 NYC
Inspired by the bodegas in New York, the Adidas Ultra Boost 4.0 will feature a multicolor Primeknit with a black cage and heel counter, which sits atop a full-length Boost midsole.
4. Jeremy’s Favorite – Suicoke Moto VM2 Brown
This Suicoke Moto – VM2 sandal is constructed with a sheep suede upper, nylon strap closures, sheep
5. Best Retro Sneaker – Saucony Originals “Shadow 6000” Tan / Eggnog
The Shadow 6000 Machine pack, featuring a supple nubuck and soft Wolverine silky suede upper with tongue branding takes inspiration from a factory engine identification plate.
Make sure to visit Manor this fall when you need to elevate your sneaker game.
Stay tuned ladies, I’ll ask Jeremy for his favorite female sneakers for fall.
