As an educator it is important to look professional at all times, whether I dress in slacks and a button up, or khakis and a polo, I need to look like a teacher, and not a student. The hard part about picking an outfit is the shoes that go with it. Some believe that I should not wear sneakers because it does not look professional for the workplace, and others really do not care, but I take pride in the way that I present myself to the staff, and here is where Creative Recreation comes in.
Creative Recreation is a California-based shoe company that focuses on the needs of men. They have developed the perfect hybrid between the comfort of the sneaker and style of the dress shoe. Their shoes have a sophistication that appeals to a wide audience. The materials that they use are very high class, and the functionality and quality of their brand is impressive.
I had the opportunity to wear the Milano 2 XVI White Smoke Black. I really liked the versatility of the shoe. The leather/suede combination gave this shoe a high class look and feel. I really liked the weighted shoe laces, which made it easy to tie and gave it a little bling.
Creative Recreation designs have been featured in a multitude of magazines from Marie Claire to Spin. It is a relatively new brand being created in 2002, but is definitely on the rise.
It is nice to have a shoe that is not only chic, but also practical.

These are really nice shoes. I can see them going with a variety of outfits and styles, from casual to athletic.
I have never heard of this brand before. I’m guessing from the website that they just sell mens and kids selections?

Very nice looking shoes. I do not think I had ever heard of this brand. It is always good to know there are so many different choices of nice shoes for the boys.
That’s a beautiful shoe! I’ve never heard of this brand, but I would absolutely buy them for my husband.
