Creative Recreation Fall 2007

Until now Creative Recreation's busy line of sneakers available in dizzying numbers of colorways hasn't quite appealed to my taste for subtler, clean-cut shoes. But their new Fall 2007 collection swayed my opinion.

The Rocco, Colombo and Ponti (pictured above from L-R, click on image for detail) immediately caught my eye for their more grown-up, understated approach. I like the move toward more monochrome looks and, as always, Creative Rec's use of premium leathers make them a wise investment. Details like the Ponti hi-top's elastic band for added comfort and flexibility and the Vans-inspired Colombo are a nice move for the brand.
