Today’s Favorites – Saint Crispins Saddle Shoe

So, I am back in Seattle feeling a bit strange, almost as if I am a stranger in my own city and am therefore a little bit discombobulated, which has left me unable to conjure something up for my long post on Mondays. Because of this I am leaving you with a tidbit on the ever so amazing Saint Crispins shoe brand, of whom I never seem to tire. Every time I see of new pair of shoes made by them, shown on Rugged Old Salt (as these were), I am always left astounded, particularly when they highlight the details that set them apart, such as the way that they finish their soles. While I am not usually so crazy about the soles’ look, especially since it gets destroyed on the first wear, I must say that the way they look in the picture below is absolutely stunning. The manner in which they finished it with that glossy shine looks delicious to say the least. I would almost feel bad wearing these if they were my shoes, I might just want to leave them sole up, face down, as to show off the beauty of the work. Key word though, ‘almost’…I would rock until that shine disappeared!

    Wow! I think I’m with you on not wearing them. It would bring a tear to my eye to scratch that beautiful sole!

    Thank you for the kind words – the model is a new design for Saint Crispin’s of my own, as is the polish. They finish the sole so nicely I can never resist giving them a hearty bulling. Doesn’t stop me from wearing them, though – shoes are to be worn.

  • OwenB – Indeed!

    Ethan – No worries my friend. Glad to see you on the blog. I love yours too! While i talk about leaving them on the mantelpiece, in reality, I am like you. Shoes are definitely meant to be worn! Thanks for commenting.
