Boot Season is Coming Soon!

I realized recently that my collection of shoes was way more catered to the liking of A/W attire. I could say that I don’t know why, but then I think that I would be fooling myself as I know that I love lace boots more than most other styles of shoe. But a good loafer is a strong contender!! Therefore, I am always looking forward to the A/W season, not only for what I will be releasing but for what others will be too. I always hope to see something different and unique from the other makers and I think that as time goes on the other brands are warming up to making more and more balmoral boots when 5-6 years ago, hardly anyone was. Now everyone has them and it’s great! That being, I am keen to see what will be released this season and hope to see more contrasting two tones (as I always do!).

I am also quite excited as after 4 years of trying, I am finally getting a button boot out there on the scene and at only £395/pair. Stay tuned too as I will soon have a pre-sale in the 4 color offerings that we will have in our button boots! (see 2 of them below)

    I am hoping for black and grey but the navy boots are very, very nice. Looking forward to these.

    • TheShoeSnob

      there will be black and grey, but the grey is going to be a corduroy

  • RogerP

    I’m really digging that second pair of button boots.

    • TheShoeSnob

      glad to hear that Roger! Hope that your Windermere’s are still treating you well

  • Chris

    I’m wishing for burgundy as one of the 2 other colours ! 😀

    • TheShoeSnob

      sorry Chris, not this year, but will do for sure next year…didn’t have a cloth that went so well with burgundy,..need to source one

  • Das Auge des Betrachters

    The blue ones look exceptional and the dense, evenly structured texture of the utilised fabric provide a quiet harmonious, organic feel. I am honestly excited about which colours and fabrics you have in store for us with the other two modells, Justin. I second Chris in that burgundy would be a great choice – a design with a strong, bold contrast would be deeply cherished. 😉 Well, and then there is the subject of green… Didn’t you mention it to become the future trend-colour besides of blue? So excited for the pictures.

      Thanks for the kind words!! Glad that you like them. Green will be next year 🙂
