Knock Out Everything with YORK’s Lion Hearted Boxing Line.

Boston is a fighting town. The image of the hardworking Irish Catholic Southie boy in his Red Sox cap, Celtics jersey, arms adorned in Shamrocks and celtic cross ink is culturally iconic. It’s New England’s version of Americana. If you know anyone from The Bean, you know that guy. Or, you at least know someone that does know that guy. Sam Adams brewery, a holy reverence for both trash talking Larry Bird and Whitey Bulger alike, dimly lit Pubs that open early to show Premier League matches, and a vicious hatred for the Muthafaukin’ Brawnx Baumahs are all equally real in Bashtan.  So is boxing. The fighting Irish don’t only play in South Bend. So it makes perfect sense for Boston bred brand YORK Athletics MFG, to embrace that fighting spirit. York was founded by Mark McGarry, who spent time at both Nike and Puma in high level positions.  As the head of…

Celebrity Look Book & Style Guide : October Edition

We always look to the influencers. They wouldn’t even have that title if they’re juju didn’t somehow rub off. We are subconsciously influenced by them and their style “guides” more often than not, barring those who exclusively shop shop at WalMart. Even then, you may be influenced by Will Farrell in Talladega Nights. We at Wanderset knew that, and we aimed a bit higher. We created “Set Members” so the real influencer could be one on one with you, without their celebrity mannequins. We netted cats like Ariel G., Sneaker Steve, Andrew Weitz, and more. These guys are the reason you even see style trends emerge, or your favorite celebrity mannequins rocking what they do. We believe in the power of the man behind the curtain. For this article, we’re going back on that. We’re gunna be your plug to the middle man, the celebrity. Why? Cuz TMZ snatched the…

The Top 5 Killer Del Toro Drops For Fall

Del Toro took the concept, and embodiment of that luxe hotel Southbeach/Europe class leisure, and mixed it with some fresh ass SOHO art galleria and that Fairfax LA fuck-corporate-shit. It all culminates in a sartorial, high brow cultural middle finger steeze. And it’s rad as hell and just what the good doctor ordered. BURGUNDY MOROCCO HIGHTOP CHUKKA Burgundy Bottalato Leather high tops are inspired by the super hip Mediterranean nation. The motif of Camels and abstract design icons, a fresh white Margum sole, and signature Toro heel tab are leather lined, hand made right across the Med in Italy, and would be ideal for a navy blue suit. Cous Cous on these haters. BLACK VELVET CANDY SKULL SLIPPERS Day of the dead kill it in these hotel slippers that could only exist in a resort El Chapo owns and brunch is snorted, and all the drinks have a…

Del Toro Is The Hippest Luxe Footwear Designer On Earth. Don’t Say We Didn’t Warn You.

Del Toro is the luxury lifestyle brand based out of Miami, Florida that we at Wanderset feel you need to discover. It’s not that they’re making everything from luxe slippers with skulls and crossbones, to red quilted high tops – it’s that it all works. It’s not a reach, or far fetched, and it doesn’t come across as a “do too much to be niche” rookie brand. Del Toro is not still feeling itself out, it knows who it is, and it’s unapologetically sarcastic, and sartorial. The brand’s character is equally European luxury, South Beach party posh, New England Ivy League, and NYLONKONG street rebellious. At the same damn time.  Originally a men’s brand, Del Toro now produces shoes and accessories for both men and women. Del Toro was founded in 2005 and originally sought to fill a void in the marketplace for affordable customized velvet slippers. Through this success,…

Discover Why Android Homme Is The Hottest Footwear Line You Haven’t Heard Of.

Android Homme has been making huge waves in rather exclusive circles for a few years now. Founded by LA based creative Javier Laval, Homme wanted to truly elevate footwear. With all due respect to Nike, Adidas, Rebok and the other mainstream internationals, Homme has crafted an innovative niche, where the athletic functionality meets futuristic progression, and the tastemakers noticed right off the bat. And while they lacked the over promoted awareness of the big boys, and never got the “flavor of the week” treatment from insincere, and often trend hopping bloggers, Homme accomplished something bigger and better. Android Homme achieved respect on their own terms. A favorite footwear designer of superstars and super aware fashion forward influencers, Homme has slowly but surely grown into the juggeraut you may have not heard of yet, and that’s fine with them. You will. Because when you’re this good, they can’t ignore you. Here’s…
