I just found the perfect gift for the guy in your life: King & Stone. Why is it perfect? It's perfect because it works for both the stylish and style-challenged guy. It offers stylish men's shoe options, but without the guesswork!
OK, at this point you are probably wondering "what the heck is King & Stone, and why is it such a great gift?" Well, let me tell you.
King & Stone is a men's shoes subscription service, offering subscribers a selection of on-trend designs to choose from each quarter (one pair per season) for a monthly subscription cost of $25. When you subscribe to King & Stone, you receive your first pair of shoes right away. Then every season (Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter) you choose one new pair from a highly-curated selection of styles. You can skip or cancel at any time.
Per the co-founder King & Stone's mission is to make it easy and affordable for men to look great all year long without the hassle. So, now do you see why this is such a good gift? Whether your man is a stylish, but busy guy who wants to refresh his look every few months without the fuss, or is a guy who could use a little help with his fashion, King & Stone works for either!
The style seen here is Cáelbad (Malachite) from the Fall collection. You can browse the new customer styles and recent seasonal collections here to see the examples of what King & Stone have to offer.
Now, the hubs is actually a pretty stylish guy. But with King & Stone, for $25 a month he never has to worry about new shoes again! He'll get a pair of his choice from the designer-curated seasonal collection every few months for as long as he is subscribed, then can skip or cancel at any time.
OK, so I've waxed on long enough about the concept. But in case you are wondering about the quality of the shoes themselves, here is my husband's review: He was first attracted to Cáelbad because he loved the chukka style, and was pleased with the on-trend olive green color. Upon receiving them and wearing them, he found them to be incredibly comfortable and stylish in person. The quality seems very well-made (they do not look or feel cheap). My husband's verdict: He feels that $75 is very affordable for the style and quality of the first pair of shoes he has received, and he is proud to wear them. It's also a major bonus that King & Stone takes the guess work out of choosing new shoes that are on-trend.
