Generic Surplus Puts The Boots To Fall 2013

Sadly, autumn is just around the corner but with the new season a new crop of fashion and accessories.

For Fall/Winter 2013, Los Angeles based Generic Surplus has crafted a new collection of  mens footwear that can go from the office to the street. Blurring the lines between sneaker and shoe, casual and dressy, the anything but “generic” footwear allows an individual’s sartorial sense to be represented with the highest integrity.

This season illuminates textures; utilizing wool, corduroy, and denim to create an aesthetic that rejects conventionality. For the bold and brave, the brand introduced a metallic gold and silver leather finish to their mainstay Wellington high-top.

The spring 2013 Generic Surplus / Mollusk Surf Shop collaboration, continues into Fall by updating their Spring shoe with a mid height. Easy, minimal, and available in brown, charcoal, or navy suede, the Mollusk Mid celebrates the lifestyle of today’s modern adventurer.
