Generic Surplus - Work Boot

  • Author:
  • Updated:

This is exactly what Generic Surplus is all about: taking a classic, easy-to-wear sneaker, and adding a really refined line or subtle inspiration. The latest from the Generic Man spinoff Generic Surplus gives a light work boot inspiration to a high top sneaker. On the bottom, it combines a traditional sneaker midsole with some light traction lugs. And the upper has the obvious work but cut, helped out by triple-stitching and a raised-seam toebox construction. The Work Boot comes in two shades of suede, both following the design guidelines of the traditional workboot; there's a standard tan suede, and a brighter, almost Nantucket Red version. As always, branding is minimal - just a tonal rubber tag at the heel - which is refreshing. Either are a good option for a Winter sneaker, for when heavy duty boots are too much.
