Some marriages are just meant to be and the one to imitate. Such is the case with GREATS, a disruptive sneaker brand founded by the ultimate sneaker heads - Jon Buscemi and Ryan Babenzien - and their recent collaboration with the menswear legend himself - Nick Wooster (also one of my all-time style crushes).

Entirely handcrafted in Civitanova Marche Italy with a calf-skin, suede foot bed and metallic silver surface, the Wooster slip-on shoe is what dreams are made of. It is incredibly lightweight due to its Italian Wearlight® injected eva cup sole, despite its appearance. While the metallic silver upper does crease over time, it gives the shoe a more worn and lived-in look with a sheen that never seems to dull - drawing in compliments from friends and strangers alike. Like Nick Wooster himself, the Wooster is quite the showstopper.

GREATS is also launching another sneaker project: the BAB (named after Ryan BABenzien). It's a beautiful hybrid between a trainer and a lightweight chukka boot - retailing at just $59 and available starting tomorrow on June 3rd. See these awesome shoes for yourself here!
