ONE SHOE THREE WAYS: THE RESNIK

You can’t get much more classic than a Brogue shoe. Wing-tipped toecaps with decorative perforations in a sleek, low-heeled silhouette — on ladies, a Brogue shoe can elevate any look.

But not all Brogues are created equal. Like the new Resnik, for example. Our designers took the traditional frame of a Brogue and gave it a rebellious twist, layering classic Oxford style with a flexible neoprene lining, front zip fastening and a chunky, platform wedge sole. It’s a little bit goth, a little bit tomboy and a whole lotta fashion in one shoe — and, being the rebellious souls that we are, we’re all about them.  To celebrate, we had some of the crew at our SoHo New York store style them up for the latest in our One Shoe Three Ways series.

Tell us how you styled the Resnik:
When I first saw the Resniks I was instantly drawn to the platform sole — since half my shoes are platforms. The brogue detail, the neoprene, and the zipper detail made the shoe even more interesting. I consider my style versatile enough to be able to marry all of these features so for me, styling the Resniks was a no-brainer.

I played up the sporty feel of the Resniks with wide-leg, tear-away track pants contrasted with a fitted, off-shoulder top with lace-up detail. I would wear this outfit to a party. And as with almost any pair of Doc’s, the Resnik can easily be dressed up or dressed down. For example, I had a customer recently who planned to wear them with a tux to a black-tie wedding. I can definitely see “fashion-conscious” girls and guys who want a low-cut profile with on-trend details going for this shoe.

CLEMENCE VALERY

Tell us how you styled the Resnik:
I am wearing a pair of Chicago cotton American Apparel black pants, a dress shirt my mom got from Mandee’s, and of course the Resniks! I could say at first I would going for a futuristic look, but when I saw the shirt my mother had I knew it would go perfectly with my outfit. I would most likely wear this to an art exhibition, so people can see the genius behind the fit. My biggest challenge with the Resnik? Its bulkiness — so I went for cropped wide legs to fit the shape of the shoe.

LEXI WAXTER

Tell us how you styled the Resnik:
I styled my look with a black sheer dress over a uniquely-cut tank and classic denim shorts. I wanted to play with layering since the shoe itself has layers of designs to it, and in New York layering is the golden rule — no matter the season. This is the kind of look I’d wear all over the place: to work, to hang out with friends in the city, or just casually running errands (because, why not dress up for my weekly Whole Foods grocery run?).

The Resnik is the perfect style of shoe to have fun playing with other accessories as well. For example, I threw on a very unique “measuring tape” choker and some fun Dinosaur socks, but someone else could easily style a look with a purse and scarf instead. But since the Resnik is so versatile, I only had to play around with accessories to pull everything together! So if you’re a spunky, yet stylistically inclined individual, you’ll want to wear the Resnik. It’ll bring the attitude and rebellious spirit to any look in a way that only a pair of Doc’s can.
