Something Different – A Chelsea With Brogueing by Riccardo Bestetti

It’s always fascinating to see shoe design that has never been done before, and I am quite sure this new chelsea boot by Riccardo Bestetti is a unique one for the industry. It certainly is not the first attempt at a brogued chelsea boot but the lines on it are different than anything I have seen before, and they also changed the shape of the gore which is not often done either. It was and […]

Gaziano & Girling New Jodhpur Boot Model

Gaziano & Girling never stop ceasing to impress with this new jodhpur boot model that they have launched a few weeks back. Unlike most jodhpur boots that share a very similar pattern, G&G really thought hard about making this one a step and above. First and foremost, you almost never see the seam go all the way to the joint of the foot. Lobb had one that went 3/4 of the arch placement but G&G […]

And it wasn’t until I spent a few days of Winter in Latvia where it got to around -20 centigrade. I wore my Snoqualmie boots with thick socks but realized that it was not sufficient in keeping my feet warm. My girlfriend had warned me about it, telling […]
