My Southern Style {K-Swiss for Billy Reid}


If you follow me on instagram, you know I have love wearing my newest K-Swiss snaekers for Billy Reid. I think the heavens opened when I saw them in the store recently. Do you remember K-Swiss???


One thing I love about Spring/Summer shoes is that they easily slip on and off.

I adore the ease of this shoe. No laces give these shoes a modern edge. No laces…YES!

Billy Reid’s collaboration with the Heritage American tennis shoe maker brings a new lineup this Spring, these with a unique convertible feature to mimic Billy's favorite way to wear his Surf & Court sneakers. Billy loves to step on the heel to slide them on, and I do too.

Characteristics of the shoe:

  • Convertible sewn-on leather heel
  • Canvas outer
  • Leather tongue pull tab
  • Heirloom ribbon inner lining with calfskin footbed
  • Laceless
  • Copper eyelets
  • Grooved rubber bottom

I was so impressed that I purchased two pairs from the Billy Reid on Magazine Street in Blue Surf and Turtledove Cinnamon. When I like something, I really do!
