Il Quadrifoglio – True Beauty


When a classic, simple shoe can sweep you off your feet you know it’s special. That is precisely how I feel about these bad boys by Il Quadrifoglio, who is a Japanese bespoke shoemaker out of Kobe only using an Italian name. Everything about this shoe and the picture (top one) is perfect, from the medallion to the way that light bounces off the vamp, to the shine put on it to the way in […]

The Blogger – His Role

all pictures of shoes by Roberto Ugolini

Dear Readers, I hope that you all had a lovely long weekend (for those whose country celebrates Easter) and if not, at least had a nice, normal weekend. Today I want to talk about what I and many of the other bloggers out there do. This is not a rant per se, but more of an education as to what we do in order to provide all of you good content to read. What springs […]

Spring Time is Here – Get Your Good Shoes out!


The sun is out and I could not be happier. It was a long, cold, dark winter here in London and some consistent sun has been much needed. Although I am not entirely sure that consistency is guaranteed here in Sunny ‘Ol. That being, it’s time to break out your light shoes as well as your good ones that you were worried about getting wet. Just today I went a bit flash and broke out […]

What I mainly see is probably a mixture of the […]

J.FitzPatrick Wedgwood Burgundy

But alas, as promised, I am here today to say thank you for all of your loyal support and do so by giving out some free […]

Button Beauties by Enzo Bonafe

There is not much more to say about button boots than I already have. As I love them so much and hate the fact that I don’t yet own one, of course you can imagine that I have been on a quest to have them made at my factory. Only they don’t want to. Not because they are being stubborn, but apparently it is probably the most difficult and problematic shoe to make. Many times […]

Something To Look At


Dear Readers, I am sorry but I am not so inspired to write today. Just one of those days, you know?! Anyway, hopefully some of these pictures can make up for my lack of writing. I hope that you all have a great day and I will be back tomorrow with something hopefully a bit more inspiring. Sincerely, Justin, “The Shoe Snob”
