Different activities require different footwear: ballin' calls for ankle-supporting hi-tops, swanky affairs demand shined-up wingtips, and moon golf requires boots. The shoes for sitting by the pool while sucking vodka out of watermelons? Zuriick
Salt Lake City's own Zuriick crafts canvas kicks whose light weight/colors make them perfect for summer months when stodgy pretense is tossed aside, and for a fleeting time, men're permitted to brandish pastels. Their just-dropped, snazzily minimalist line sports two-tone vulcanized rubber outsoles, and comes in a range of colors inspired by "everything" the designers "see during the day", from light cement w/ a yellow/white sole (think a median w/ yellow-painted curbs) to charcoal w/ a blue/white sole (BBQ'd dolphin?). After sticking to slip-ons their first couple years, Z's also busted out two lace-up models, the lo-top Taylor and the hi-top, off-color-piping-bestowed "Beata", which is actually a short-form of the name Beatrice (how bad do you want a pair now?)
Z's also got a nine-deep tee line: 100%-cotton jobs rocking playfully artsy graphics/text, like an open-mouthed shark ringed by the ransom-note-fonted declaration "I'm Gonna Eat Your Bitch" -- an activity for which no footwear's required.
