Spring Preview: Clae

Clean, modern styling and a neutral palette with pops of color define the look for Los Angeles-based Clae’s spring ’10 collection. The sneakers — inspired by classic vulcanized styles, boat shoes, tennis shoes and basketball looks — have a refined, metropolitan edge that can be dressed up or down. The styles, which come in canvas and leather, range from $65 to $135 and are available at select boutiques and department stores, including Barneys, Bodega in Boston and Halls Plaza in Kansas City, Mo.
