You might think of Generic Surplus as the "poorman's" Common Projects, and we don't say that in a negative way. Let's face it everyone's broke, and spending $300 on a pair of sneakers just isn't smart. Plus this Generic Man offshoot brand offers sophisticated silhouettes that look much more expensive than they actually are.

These fashion-set friendly Military Hi's clock in at a reasonable $70, so your wallet won't take too much of a hit. Check for them at Steven Alan in the next few weeks.
