Bontoni – Something Different

2015-11-06 06.33.33

Its always interesting to see new ideas tested out and this Bontoni is defintiely something new (relatively speaking). Now I will say that I have seen this done before, but never this good and that is the cap having purely round edges. Its quite mind boggling to look at really as it looks like a u cap but isn’t and vastly changes the feel of the shoe’s pattern. It’s hard to describe what I am trying to say but it throws off one’s perception of how a cap should look when seeing this one as it alters the lines and shapes we are used to looking at. And while I can’t say that I have ever been crazy about it on other models, I think Bontoni did the pattern just right and didnwell by adding the brogueing too as it helps to soften the change.

Well done Bontoni!
