Gravis’ Fall 2011 line-up features a few great pieces added to the lifestyle collection. The collection is great to get your grown man game on. After years of skating I’ve strayed away from the thick and often heavy skate shoes and moved towards more function and stylish kicks to complement the wardrobe. Gravis has been of the innovators of creating lifestyle products with an action sports influence.

Perfect for my upcoming trip to Costa Rica is the Yachtmaster. Made from canvas with suede accents the durability will be there while exploring the little surf towns. The Buxton waxed suede shoe for more fashionable affairs will come in handy when both comfort and style are needed. Of course no trip would be complete with a travel bag. The Travel Duffle will come in handy with the multiple pockets for storage including a side storage for shoes or anything else that needs to be separated from the main compartment. I look forward to putting this gear to use on the trip.
