Christian Kimber Capri Boots – Now On Sale!

There are two things highly underrated with this featured boot: crepe soles and black suede. I have always loved black suede and been fascinated by pairing dress shoes/boots with crepe soles and it’s nice to see that someone has done it, once and for all. The Capri boot by Christian Kimber, for me, is like the perfect harmony between a Timberland classic boot mixed with a bit of Edward Green Galway and for that, I […]

From Dreams to Reality – Christian Kimber Shop

It is quite amazing to see someone progress, especially when it is someone you know personally. I remember when first meeting Christian Kimber and becoming friends, we had these chats about starting a shoe line, possibly together even, but then he went and moved off to Australia. But everything happens for a reason and I can see now that Christian and I in reality had very different directions of shoe design in mind so we […]

From London to Melbourne – The Making of Christian Kimber

I remember when I first started working on Savile Row. I was fresh & naive and I did not really know anyone in the industry outside of Carreducker. They had told me about the owner of then Lodger, being American (from the NW like me) and friendly, and offered an introduction so that I could start making contacts and just getting to know people really. So I emailed the owner, told him that I would […]

Christian Kimber Footwear – Mark Your Calenders

I remember the first time that I ever got recognized as The Shoe Snob. It was a surreal moment (and definitely took me by surprise) as I did not really think of myself as being “known.” Even to this day, I am constantly shocked when I discover that certain people and/or companies read my blog and know who I am, but it is a good feeling I can’t lie and anyway I always love meeting […]
