A Beautiful Spat Boot by Stamp
One thing that really excites me is discovering that two colors that I would have never thought of pairing actually go really well together, as is displayed here with this dark green suede and navy baby calf. Absolutely stunning to say the least, not only the color coordination but the contrast sole, the last shape (that amazing chisel toe) and the elegant balmoral line that is nothing shy of perfect. This was a pair that was commissioned (all details being chosen by the customer - well done on him!!) to be made bespoke by Nicholas Cooper of Stamp Shoes and boy did he do a good job on this one! That chisel toe, for me, is nothing shy of perfect. It has a great balance between sharp and curvacious and is not overly elongated as you sometimes find. Beautiful and like always, I wish that I had a pair.....!
On another note, I will be taking professional pictures of all of the shoes in my upcoming collection. Once they are ready (around Jan. 14th-15th), I will put them up on the blog and allow all of you, my wonderful supporters, to pre-order them at a 20% discount as a thank you for all of your loyalty to the blog and my cause. Just wanted to give you a heads up and retail prices will be from £305-£350 (but then you take 20% off of that)
