During my search for a new pair of sneakers I recently came across a company called Clear Weather Brand. Founded in 2014 by brothers Brandon and Josh Brubaker (who have a combined 30+ years of shoe design experience) Clear Weather seeks to recreate footwear classics for the future by redesigning vintage styles that look modern and distinct. The idea is to appreciate the comfort of wearing a familiar sneaker while still feeling the thrill of rocking an original and fresh design.

History influences the look and feel of everything Clear Weather does, including their logo; a curved line inside an equal sign which is a Native American pictograph that means “clear weather”.

With an impressive library of styles to choose from in a variety of colors and fabrics, hands down one of my favorites is their Santora Collection. Check out my top 5 styles below and be sure to visit their website if you are in the market for a new pair of kicks for Spring.

Man, this heatwave has me itching to start some shopping for Spring… Luckily, I recently had the good fortune to spend the afternoon up at Saks OFF 5th in the Fashion Outlets of Niagara Falls to check out some of their latest offerings for Spring and select some of my favorite pieces for one of their upcoming publications. With this current spike in temperatures, now seems like the perfect time to check out some of the season’s hottest trends.

Saks OFF 5th Exclusives


One of the best things about many of the stores at the Fashion Outlets is access to exclusive brands you won’t find anywhere else in the area. This Basquiat collection from Eleven Paris is exclusive to Saks OFF 5th and is favorite of mine this season. Naturally I had to pair this jacket with a pair of paint-splattered pants.


Shore Leave


Military-inspired trends continue to be huge for Spring, with camo patterns and embroidered Bomber “Tour Jackets” being wardrobe essentials. Paired with a floral button down and causal sneakers, this look is perfect for wearing during the day or night.

Looking your best while you travel is always a must with Buffalo Dandy, and Saks OFF 5th has everything you’ll need to look your best while on Spring Break.
