Beckett Simonon – REID SNEAKER

September 19, 2019

Beckett Simonon – REID SNEAKER

So, I have something to admit; I love white sneakers. I’m not sure if it’s because I never keep my shoes clean as a child or if it’s because white sneakers are a classic that almost never goes out of style. Either way, when Beckett Simonon gave me a pair of REID SNEAKERS sneaker to review, and I jumped at the chance.

First, who is Beckett Simonon? Beckett Simonon is a direct to consumer brand that provides men with handcrafted shoes, bags, and belts at a reasonable price. Their mission is to create a smarter way to shop and manufacture so we can all come out on top. Sounds great, right?!

Beckett Simonon even sent me a step by step order update from start to finish. Included with my order updates were videos of the process like this message from Juan Carlos.

So, what do I like about the shoes? I definitely love the craftsmanship and time put into the product. When you open the box the shoes are covered in a silk-smooth shoe bag. The inside bag includes either extra insoles or additional she laces. The shoe themselves are all white leather with white stitching which makes it easy to pair pops of color. Since we are heading into the Fall season I’m doing a pop with my socks.

Below are some highlights from the REID SNEAKER

  • Handmade in small batches.
  • Extra durable side stitched construction.
  • Full grain leather upper.
  • Full leather lining for extra breathability.
  • Removable cushioned inserts.
  • Folded topline edges.
  • Sturdy yet flexible rubber cupsole.
  • 1 year warranty.

Gene Juarez Men’s Salon

February 22, 2018

Gene Juarez Men’s Salon

Gene Juarez Men’s Salon is for the modern man who wants to leave with the perfect cut and shave. The grooming treatment I received included a haircut with shampoo, straight razor shave, hot towels and lather. If you’re a beer drinker you’ll be happy to know there are beverages on tap. This was my first experience at a hair salon, but when left the salon I felt like a brand new man. There’s nothing like the feeling after a fresh shave. If you look at the video you’ll see the before and after.

Random pictures of Stockholm

I’m really falling for this city! I can’t remember the last time travel to a city abroad and the people made me feel so at comfortable. I especially enjoy how the city is made small islands. These small walk-able islands, are home to city Parks, museums, old towns and other historic sights. I hope you enjoy my random pictures of Stockholm. My plan is to go back some day.


Sorry for the wait.

For those who follow me on closely know I am a huge fan of Japanese culture. There’s something about the bright lights, the business, and cultural differences that excite me. Today I will be traveling from Seattle to Tokyo for the second time and will be capturing the things I see through my new camera and lens.

Although I will be focusing on Tokyo I will be uploading videos on how to get around in Japan featuring tips and tricks. If you have any suggestions on things you would like me to cover let me know.
