Antonio de Torres Upcoming Brand

Antonio de Torres7

A while back I wrote about a brand by the name of Massimo Ferrari (see review here) who was headed up by shoe designer Luis Antonio Torres. It would appear that since then, the direction of the company has changed and he is now dropping a new line with his name as the brand. Instead of going into all the details on here, I will pass you on to Claymoor’s list who did a big […]

Don’t Forget Your Shoehorn! – Fort Belvedere

Fort Belvedere Shoe Horns

Something that often goes overlooked as a shoe care accessory is the ever-important shoe horn. For the most part, we all know that we should use them, but for some reason many of us never do. In the morning we are in a rush and we just simply cram our feet into our shoes in the hopes to get them on quickly or not have to bend over. With just a little bit of effort […]

Herring Spectators – Perfect for Christmas!

Spectators by Herring

A good green suede can go a long way and this green suede just might be the best that I have yet to ever see. It’s the perfect blend between dark green, blue and emerald green and that is what I have always looked for. Funny thing is that I have yet to find it until now! Looks like I will be knocking on Herring’s door to see where they got it! Anyway, back to […]

Aubercy’s New Models

Aubercy Shoes

So I am currently in Paris in preparation for my trunk show here at the Menswear Corner concept store, from tomorrow until Saturday at 12 Passage Choiseul (75002). Considering I had some down time after my quick and easy set up, I decided to pop by one of my favorite Parisian shoemakers; the one and only Aubercy and see what they have been cooking up. Needless to say, I am always impressed when I go […]

Septieme Largeur New Winter Stock

SL moc boot

The apron toe is going strong around the globe this year and Septieme Largeur offers a boot version that feels ever so slightly different than the rest. I can’t quite pinpoint it though, what it is that makes it different. It might be because of the split at the nose or because the vamp seems a bit more extended with respect to other versions , but either way it is different yet very appealing. I […]

Boot Season is Back!

Edward Green, this and all of the others below too

I am not sure that anyone can deny that Edward Green is the current reigning champ when it comes to having an awesome boot selection. The Galway alone (as shown above) is probably among the coolest boots ever, not to mention their balmoral offering of the Shannon. The only thing that they are really missing is a button boot, but somehow I doubt that they would ever go through the trouble of making one of […]
