Designer Profile- Mark McNairy

There’s been a lot of buzz in the past year about Mark McNairy and his brand, New Amsterdam. He was just listed in GQ as a top designer of 2012, but he’s been in the spotlight seemingly since he started work in 08. He also kind of looks like Ben Linus from LOST, doesn't he?

I love stepping out in a fresh pair of shoes and have a weakness for buying them in crazy colors (when I got a pair of Topsiders, I got these). I like Mark McNairy because he’s taking the variety of color combos we’d normally see on sneakers and using them to turn the dress-shoe world on it’s head.
Sting Like A Mot**rf**ker- sweet name, right?

Yes, you can pull off a pair of green chukkas.

A saddle shoe stands out. Two-tone saddle shoes kick ass.

Shoes are a place where people last expect to see a splash of color, so it provides an opportunity to stand out from the crowd and express your style in a flashy, personal way, without being overly distracting like a loud shirt or pair of pants would be.
