Boot up 

If you find old soccer jerseys appealing, then Camper Shoes will definitely catch your eye. In fact, some of the styles actually look like retro-style soccer boots. Made in Spain, they’re destined to become the new cool shoe of choice on this side of the Atlantic. First of all, they’re extremely comfortable. Second, they’re well-made with leather and funky “pelota” rubber soles (think small Super Balls cut in half). Third, they look really nice. Yes, they are expensive, $129 and up, and relatively hard to find — which of course makes them even cooler. Still, look them up on their Web site,, or visit Chester Boot Shop in Roseville (28037 Gratiot, 810-779-6103 or’s the only place around here where I’ve seen them.
