Menswear Icon Nick Wooster on Sneakers, Style and What Every Man Should Have in His Closet

Mr. Nick Wooster has been called an Internet superhero and the “alpha male of American street style.” Some fans even call him Woost God. He’s got upward of half a million followers on Instagram, and photographers hound him at Fashion Week and Pitti Uomo. It’s safe to say he knows a thing or two about style.

Mr. Wooster can also boast (if he were so inclined) 30 years of experience as a fashion director and creative consultant at highbrow retailers around the world. So it’s safe to say he knows a thing or two about luxury.

Which is why his new collaboration with Brooklyn-based sneaker company GREATS is so exciting. From luxurious Italian craftsmanship to Instagram-worthy designs, these bold, playful shoes are made to be enjoyed. We caught up with him between promotional appearances for the Nick Wooster x GREATS collection to ask him a few questions about shoes, style and what every man needs in his closet.

THE THREAD: What do you do as a product merchandiser?
STEVE CULTON: As a product merchandiser I research and shop trends, collaborate with buyers on their specific needs and develop product with our sourcing partners specific to each label with the help of color and trend direction from our Creative Resource division. I also work with our factory partners on fit and execution of shoes, collaborate and coordinate with my Nordstrom Product Group (NPG) Ready-To-Wear counterparts to ensure brand alignment, and lastly I manage and execute strategic objectives to achieve financial goals.

THE THREAD: What do you like most about being a product merchandiser?
STEVE: I really enjoy developing product and collaborating with our supplier partners abroad to do so. It is also rewarding working with our buying teams to deliver new and exciting product.

THE THREAD: What is your background in fashion?
STEVE: I started my career working on the sales floor, and held several footwear management jobs, both at Nordstrom and other retail companies. My positions ranged from department manager to merchandise manager to buyer. I have been a footwear store owner, and have spent 10 years in my current position developing footwear.

THE THREAD: What are the big trends you see for footwear this winter?
STEVE: Short boots, specifically short wedge boots! Smoking slipper silhouettes—they are everywhere, from luxury designers to starting price points. I also see a return of the ladylike single-sole pump.

Scrumptious Sandals

These Tory Burch beauties are looking so delicious, they’re giving us a midday sugar rush.



Our Inspiration:
The rich, buttery leather interwoven with golden brown fibers on this Tory Burch ‘Layce’ High Heel had us craving something sweet. Thankfully, Martha Stewart came to our rescue with a recipe for checkerboard cookies to stop our mouths from watering. Well, from watering over shoes anyway.
