Last week's snowstorm might have paralyzed the city, but it had one positive outcome: There is now a selection of guys running around the streets of NYC looking good in Diemme boots. Odin has the USA exclusive on boots from the Italian shoemakers, and when we stopped into their East Village pad the morning after the blizzard, we found a waitlist that was already pages long. They told us they had experienced an influx of dudes who wanted to get Diemme-fied, and both stores (East Village and SoHo) were down to a few pairs. Worry not: While they are almost completely sold out, they are expecting another shipment of various styles and colorways within the next few weeks, most notably the Diemme Hiking Boot.—Yale Breslin
