Today in Gear: Dress Shoes With Shock-Absorbing Foam, Herman Miller’s Collab With Logitech & More

The best way to catch up on the day’s most important product releases and stories.



Today in Gear is our daily roundup of all the latest product announcements, drops and deals. Comments or concerns? We’d love to hear from you at tig@gearpatrol.com.

No matter what work you’re in, you are probably always on the move. Unfortunately, dress shoes have been slow to keep up with the fast pace of modern life — with clunky hard to break-in leather and heavy soles that give little grip and make your dogs bark. The Holden Plain Toe from Johnston & Murphy merges classic style with ultralight, cushioned comfort. Crafted from premium subtle leather that will move with you, The Holden also features memory foam cushioning, which molds to the contours of your foot to ensure a comfortable fit all day — day after day. The outsole is also a break from the rigid tradition, made from shock-absorbing EVA that will keep your feet feeling good no matter how long you are on your feet.
