Today’s Favorites – Spectators

Dear Readers,

I am sorry but I won’t have enough time today to bust out my usual long Monday post, but I promise that I will do my best to get it out by tomorrow. Therefore, I am going to leave you with a bit of spectator shoe porn that should have you yearning to go get yourself a pair, or two! You see, the beauty of this type of shoe (with 3-5 different pieces of leather) is that it allows you to create any type of combination that you want, should you so please. It’s the shoe for the guy that wants to be different, the guy who is not convinced by a wardrobe of just black and brown shoes. And while most people are content with simply changing the colors in their spectators, I view them as a chance to change materials such as using suede, exotics or even certain fabrics, like flannel. It really is the shoe to get should you want to let your imagination run free and have the ability to do so….but usually it involves the upcharge of MTO, or even bespoke, for those crazy combinations! Nevertheless, enjoy the pics here and if you have a spare 10-15 minutes, look at the Flickr page of the person who owns the rights to the two pics (chickalot06), and which just might be the greatest shoe collection of all time!

Until Tomorrow,
