Welcome to 2015! It’s Now “The Future”

I remember watching movies in the 90’s that were set in the future and 2015 being a somewhat common date which truly marked the idea of “The Future.” It looked like the Jetson’s in all of the films with hovering cars, futuristic-looking jumpsuits as everyday clothing and of course the most horrific footwear ever. Thankfully it still looks like the 90’s as far as urban planning goes, only that are buildings are a bit more cool and phones a lot more advanced and addicting. But footwear is better than ever in my opinion (style wise, not quality) and I hope that we never get to that Jetson’s futuristic look and simply lose all the sense of style that we ever had. Who know’s though? Maybe our children’s children will be wearing that crazy stuff. I am just happy that I am not as I still love my modern day clothing. Anyway, having stated my predictions in the last post, I truly look forward to seeing what really does come about this year and to see if anyone sets the path for a new ‘look’ or idea. I guess only time will tell though.
Enjoy the rest of your holiday period! Work commence’s soon and there will be some treats coming from us. Be on the look out.

    Hi Justin. I’ve been following your blog for about a year now. Love it!. I also love your new burgundy shoes. Perhaps I will treat myself in the next 12 months. Great burnishing/shading around the toe, emphasised by the perfect colour. Well done
    I’ve also enjoyed your recent posts showing fabulous Oxford boots….those green ones especially.
    I wish you continued shoe success and innovation.

    Hi Justin,,

    It sure has been a while since I’ve commented on your blog. Probably since you were using the Google Blogspot; but I’ve been an avid follower of your post. Love the medallion on your The Wallingford II in burgundy on the MGF chisel last.
