Details | A First Look at Greats' Sleek New Update to the Royale Sneaker


Men's fashion is an inches game, and no one understands that better than the guys behind the sneaker brand Greats. This Friday, the New York–based operation (which counts stylish guys like Kevin Durant and Nick Wooster among its cult following) will release a new version of its Royale shoe. It's crafted from a sleek, flat leather that gives it a more refined feeling than its predecessors.
"Originally, our Royale was pebble leather and we were just sort of iterating," the brand's cofounder Ryan Babenzien told us. "That's what we do, we just change things slightly. It's going to have the same last, same shape, same silhouette—we just replaced the leather with a flat leather, so there's no grain in it like the original. We also tried a leather side panel instead of a synthetic-suede side panel. It's just a little bit cleaner."
