If it’s not already, Brandblack is certainly a label that needs to be on your radar. With a sock-like fit and chunky sole, the Aura silhouette offers both comfort and style and plays perfectly into the current “Dad sneaker” trend. That’s why Barneys was excited to partner with the up-and-coming brand. Barneys SVP/DMM of Men’s Footwear Melissa Gallagher says, “These two Exclusively Ours styles were designed specifically for our customers. The quality is exceptional, and we are very excited to introduce it to our shoppers.”

BRANDBLACK BNY Sole Series: Burgundy Aura Knit & Leather Sneakers

The Aura Knit & Leather Sneakers are available in limited-edition pink and black or gray, navy, and burgundy color combinations. Chris Pepe, Senior Footwear buyer, selected the pink color scheme, while Associate Buyer Brian Moore chose the latter. The soles of these shoes are also a big focus, as the brand utilizes Vibram® RollinGait System technology for extra flexibility and support. “These Brandblack sneakers are not only on trend, they are also the most comfortable shoes I’ve ever worn,” Moore says with confidence.
