Neil M. Cambridge Bucks

While I’m not one to use a phrase like “summer essential,” I will say that few items embody the style of the season quite like a solid pair of bucks. And though there are dozens of options on the market, the Cambridge bucks from Arkansas’ Neil M are literally the only pair out there (believe me, I’ve looked) that are made in America, and, cost well under $200. Available in white and tan nubuck – both with the classic red brick rubber sole – the shoes’ features include removable leather-covered insoles, a padded footbed, a carbon-fiber shank, and a perforated leather lining for breath-ability (all of which equals very happy feet, all summer long). has ‘em, and the shipping is free (including returns).
