In the words of Ronnie Fieg, his collaboration with Jon Buscemi on the Buscemi 100mm Sneaker represents nothing short of a masterpiece. It is, he says, “one of the greatest fashion sneakers I have ever seen.” Looking at the details, it’s not hard to see the justification for Ronnie’s rapturous appraisal: there’s the hand-sewn un-dyed vegtan calfskin leather, complemented with a vachetta liner and footbed. There’s the genuine 18k rose gold plated hardware, custom designed custom for this project and including the signature Buscemi lock and key in rose gold. And finally, there’s the clean, simple design, built with a Veg Tan/Rose Gold colorway that’s sure to age beautifully over time. The co-branded kicks are available now at Kith’s Bleecker St., Brooklyn and online stores.

Long associated with Gourmet, the trendsetting lifestyle footwear label, designer Jon Buscemi set out on his own recently to pursue something beyond the status quo once again. The result was the BUSCEMI 100mm Shoe. Though categorized as a sneaker by default, each pair of BUSCEMI 100mm Shoe features genuine full-grain Italian leather, then cut and handcrafted by artisans in Civitanova, a region around central Italy best known for manufacturing of luxury goods. In fact, Buscemi utilized the same facilities shared by labels such as Chanel, Golden Goose, and etc… Put together with the durable rubber magrom outsole and finished with 18k gold plated hardware, working mini lock and a clochette, the BUSCEMI 100mm Shoe in Red is now available at select retailers, including Sneaker Politics in Louisiana.

The latest installment from luxury sneakers line Jon Buscemi and their “obnoxiously high quality goods” is the 100MM high-top leather sneaker. The high quality shoe has been made in Civitanova, Italy in the same factory that produces brands like Chanel and Golden Goose among others. Their company pays testament to the standard of the shoes, with a full-grain Italian leather upper and 18K gold details on the ankle strap and a working lock and clochette – if you’d ever dreamed of a Hermes Birkin for your feet, here it is. The sneakers are available now for $785 USD from Kith NYC.

Jon Buscemi already made a strong impact on the streetwear community working for the likes of Mosley Tribes and DC before starting Gourmet footwear. However, after leaving the brand he recently upped the ante with his latest brainchild – humbly named after himself. Besides boasting a rock-solid collection of sneakers, Jon Buscemi takes pride in providing a range of premium quality leather goods. The latest lineup sees beautifully crafted bags, keychains and coffe cup sleeves, as well as the deerskin leather wrapped skateboards pictured above. Intended solely for decorative use, they are now available at select retailers including Union LA.

“High style footwear will never be purchased in the same way, ever again.” Jon Buscemi recently announced via social media that GREATS will be launching August 6 with a main focus on bringing high-quality men’s footwear to the consumer at a reasonable price. GREATS is the creation of Jon Buscemi and Ryan Babenzien, who together look to reduce current inefficiencies in the footwear industry with a goal of striking a balance between both quality and price.

GREATS is Launching August 6 is a post by Brian Farmer on Highsnobiety.
To most of you Jon Buscemi should be a rather familiar name. Having been in the streetwear and fashion game for many years, the native New Yorker who resides in Los Angeles since many years, has been running the Mosley Tribes brand for Oliver Peoples before founding his own shoe brand, Gourmet. Recently he moved on to start a new shoe company by the name GREATS and as a side project he is also launching the Jon Buscemi brand. For those of you that know him a little bit better, you will probably agree that this first collection of sneakers and leather goods has his signature written all over it – high quality, great details, unique, and in some ways even a little ironic and funny.
The first collection under his own name consists of a mid top sneaker and matching premium leather accessories, that include a dog leash, keychain, leather wrapped skateboard, leather coffee cup holder and a beautiful large size leather bag. Entirely produced in Italy, the collection shines with outstanding quality and subtle BUSCEMI branding.
The stand-out piece and the one that will most likely be most talked about, is the new sneaker. Imagine wearing a Hermès Birkin bag on your feet? Well, that is exactly what you are getting, including all the details, such as the lock, key, key cover and everything else. Look out for the official release of the first Jon Buscemi collection at select retailers in mid August 2013.

More than just a daily visual journal, Instagram serves as a platform that allows anyone and everyone to be a photographer. Simple and effective, the San Francisco-born mobile app, along with its many supporting third party components, is a fun and engaging way of sharing adventures, good eats and plenty of embarrassing moments in between. Since Instagram is a favorite social media platform of ours, we decided to share some of the people we find inspiring in our latest weekly feature, Five Instagram Accounts We’re Enjoying This Week. Feel free to let us know in the comments section on why you feel your account should be featured next week and be sure to follow us at @highsnobiety.
@sin_takizawa – NEIGHBORHOOD designer and founder Shinsuke Takizawa has an affinity for motorcycles, evident through mostly everything the Japanese brand produces, including his Instagram account.
@babyscumbag – I’m not sure what you were doing at 13 years old, but I surely wasn’t even close to being this engaging. Follow the adventures of Steven Fernandez, a so cal skater with plenty up his sleeve.
@alexpardee – Alex Pardee has always been a favorite of mine, going back to my days hanging out on Haight Street and seeing his work all the time through Upper Playground. Great stuff.
@jonbuscemi – Aside from his ties to the world of footwear, Jon Buscemi knows a thing or two about good eats, evident through his IG account, which usually makes me hungry, even when I’m not.
@romantattoos – Roman Abrego’s work is nothing short of amazing, especially when it comes to portraits. Peep what the So Cal native is up to at his tatto shop Artistic Element.

A very familiar foodie joins us on the first installment in our Travel Series. Currently residing in Los Angeles by way of New York, Gourmet Footwear co-founder Jon Buscemi gives us his ‘Top 5′ restaurants in Los Angeles. From classic burgers, authentic sushi, down to his native NY and Italian roots, Buscemi breaks it down on where to dine on your next visit to the ‘City of Angels’.
Top 5 LA Restaurants:
1) Bay Cities Deli: for Santa Monica/ LA to have a deli 75% equivalent to deli’s I grew up with in NY is a plus for me. They also have a patented Italian bread that compares to no other. Order online and pick it up to avoid bullshit waiting.
2) Applepan: Burgers were perfected in LA and Applepan is my favorite. These guys have been doing the same thing for 40-50 years. Order the Hickory, fries and Apple Pie Ala Mode. Your good!
3) Ink: For the foodie in me I have to say iNK. do a tasting menu with wine pairing and your in good hands. Michael Voltaggio is #1 in LA when it comes to this type of eating. Order the oysters in the pot… my favorite.
4) Al Gelato: there are many decent Southern Italian spots in LA ( Cafe Angelino/ Dan Tana’s) but the best casual Italian is Al Gelato. Its the best of Italy with sweet tomato sauce, rigatoni and order the meatball is a must. The bread is unique and the best around. Save some room for a piece of chocolate cake or italian macaroon.
5) Sushipark: under the radar and super strict. These 2 elements always make the best sushi places. No menu, no bullshit. Go in and ask for them to feed you. That’s it. Best sushi maybe in all of California–.
Look out for more installments of Travel Tuesday, with locals giving you the best spots to hit on your next trip.

With all the attention on New York Knicks and the NBA Playoffs, its easy to forget that the city now has the Brooklyn Nets as well. So while Nike quipped Spike Lee, aka Knicks’ Biggest Fan, with a pair of one-of-one Air Foamposite One, Gourmet will be outfitting Jay-Z in a specially made 22 L. First seen on Gourmet’s Instagram feed, the 22L is a creation in all black (of course) premium leather, suede midsole, and outsole in contrast white, the guys at Gourmet spruced out the design with new Brooklyn Nets logo as the tongue tag and a Jay-Z heel tab in the likes of the Goyard Chevron pattern. Be on the lookout for these along the courtside of Barclays Center this coming fall. via: HB
