Head to Hayes Valley this weekend to take a gander at the always-lovely latest from a San Francisco designer during the Martha Davis Spring Summer Preview.
School may have started up (note the snarling a.m. traffic this week), but we’re just getting prepped for San Francisco summer, a.k.a. regular people’s fall. A shoe you’ll want to kick back in for the sunny months ahead comes from local label Blu Kicks, a line inspired by Hawaii’s endangered and – oddly enough – shoe-shaped Humuhumunukunukuapua’a fish that sales of the footwear help protect.
San Francisco’s Gimme Shoes stores are having a sale that means 30 percent off footwear from Costume National, Chie Mihara, Rachel Comey, Acne, Dries Van Noten, Repetto and others. Let the drooling officially begin.
Our very-visual, (almost) chatter-free snap judgment of the day: the Hupper Numero Uno by Huf. With only 111 pairs available, the very first sneaker from the local company is scheduled to arrive in the San Francisco and Los Angeles stores on Saturday.
