Bespoke Shoe Porn and Shoes on Sale!

Dear Readers,

Well, to be honest, I am not in the greatest of moods today, which makes me quite uninspired to write anything, so this post will be short but hopefully still sweet. Atop you can see a beautiful bespoke shoe by Roberto Ugolini which is probably one of the most visual pleasing shoes that I have seen in awhile. While possibly considered garish to some, I find it to be stunning!

On another note, Gieves & Hawkes started their sale today and with that, so did I. That means that about half of my stock is currently being sold for around 20% off. (The models/colors listed below) Some might be curious to know why I am already in sale, and well, in order to keep fresh and afloat I need to always offer new things and get rid of what is not flying off the shelves or what is simply made for seasonal purposes. This will then allow for more cash flow to help bring in the new models and keep my depth in sizing in the core products.

Oxfords/Darbys/Loafers/Monkstraps: now 250
Chukka Boots: now 260
Balmoral Boots: now 275

Models/Color:

Phinney (all colors)
Marcos (charcoal suede)
Shilshole
Wedgwood (merlot/charcoal suede & black/vivid blue suede)
Fremont (both colors)
Broadway
Tony (forest green)
Wallingford (black)
Corliss

On another note, I was featured in Keikari forum in what has probably been the most in depth interview that I have ever done, explaining a lot of my history, so if you are interested in learning a bit more about me, then please check it out:

    Hi,
    These are good news! I have set my sight on a pair that is obviously worth the money. But I’m still not sure whether I could manage to grab it this time around.

    Hi Justin,

    Great interview, and great blog. I hope to call in and see you next month, keep up the good work.

  • Justin:

    I am assuming the following is in the pipeline. The Phinney as one of, what to me anyway, the greatest shoes ever, a spectator/saddle. The wing and saddle the same color with the rest of the shoe a different color.

    Looking forward to new offerings.

    Justin, thanks for sharing with us all these details. We know now more about the brain, the heart and the hands behind this passion! Congratulations for your nearby fatherhood! I have 5 children who don’t let me nor Budget for shoes neither storing space for them but anyway they’re the greatest thing on Earth. Your blog and your posts help me compensate this through the view of wonderful shoes that I could only buy one day in the Future…

  • Justin I have been following your blog for sometime now do not stop. Prof Emeritus of all time.
    It is very important what you are doing. Can you please write up on the brand Max Verre. I would love to read about your thoughts on this brand.

  • Justin, congratulations for the interview. I really enjoy it.
