When basketball star Lebron James isn’t sporting his eponymous Nikes, the NBA’s highest-paid player often steps out in custom shoes by George Esquivel. A handmade pair from the Los Angeles designer will set you back between $1,000 and $5,000 (depending on material), and one of its hallmarks is burnished leather, which has a rich patina that makes them look like well-worn favourites. The effect works on a variety of styles—loafers, wingtips and more—so they’re versatile enough to complete a suit or dress up a pair of jeans. The ball’s in your court.
