When Collaborations Go Wrong and Involve Good Companies

Santoni-Rubelli_Lopez_Boris

I was searching for some cool Santoni’s to put up on the blog, in the hopes to find a new model from their goodyear welted range. Unfortunately I did not have much luck in that search but I did come across these bad boys which I must say might be even a bit bold for your wildest dandy. I never mind doing/seeing things done a bit differently but polka dots on men’s shoes, to me, simply seems a bit overboard. Add velvet/velour to the mix and you have one wild shoe that I don’t think anyone could pull off, not even Hugh Hefner. I can understand not turning business down, but I don’t think that I would personally ever want to be associated with craziness like this! But at least in my research I found these nice boots below to make up for it!

    Where are the boots from! Simply gorgeous.

    Mate I think Justin referenced the boots as part of a Santoni search so it’s implied that they are from there.

    Hallo Justin, I totally agree with your dislike for the dotted shoes. But some will by them, as we all know, because it is always a point of view. To ME personally, the denim / leather shoes you showed on your last entry are not quite, but almost as hard to stand as these dotted shoes here.

    Loving the boots. The monstrosities at the top show what happens when fashion gets in the way of style.

    Honestly, the slippers are kinda okay-isn, some might be able to pull it off, but the monkstraps BLARGAHALRGHLRALRA
