The Hirsch is one of the best chukkas I’ve ever worn (there have been a lot!), managing to be lightweight and breathable while still offering serious support. It’s en vogue to put a white accent on the bottom of non-white shoes as if to say, “Hey everybody, this guy’s wearing a supportive shoe, what a loser,” but the white stripe looks great here, and the heel counter really brings it all together. More colors, please.
