Additions To Your Sole

There is much debate on whether or not one should add things to his/her sole to make them last longer/protect from the elements. Some argue in favor of adding rubber/metal, others swear that it actually ruins your shoes in the long run. But who is right? Well, while my word is not fact, I will put my two cents in and break down both the for’s and against’s in order to come to a conclusion […]

The New Leatherfoot Emporium

It would appear that Leatherfoot has been busy in the last few years, building the greatest thing to come out of Toronto since, well….I don’t know really? But anyway, the new emporium that they are creating looks like quite the destination shop for those of you a bit more sartorial minded and with a taste for the finer things in life. Set in what looks like to be a pre-1900 building, is their new lovely […]

New Stuff in the Industry!

It can be hard keeping on top of all of the new things that are coming out and events that are going on. At first this post was going to be about trunk shows but then I tried scouring the web for them and found that there are just way too many to list out. I would be copying and pasting like 10 pages of text. Just look at G&G’s trunk show schedule!! Way too much! […]

Tri-Color Boots by Saint Crispins

  We all know how obsessed I am with two toned shoes, but I have never ever been a fan of tri-color shoes, or tri-color anything for that matter (just ties). For me (in shoes) one color is boring, 2 is perfect and 3 is just too much. BUT, when I saw these beauties, by Saint Crispins, I could not help but admire and appreciate the colors/textures involved. And I think the thing that really […]

A Sight to Make You Smile – Shoe Heaven

Dear Readers, I am yet again having a day where I am trying to do a million things at once, mainly crossing all the t’s and dotting all of the i’s to finishing my website. It is the mundane and tedious yet very important part of the process…That being, my time for the blog is left to about 5 minutes today. Sorry yet again for rushed content. Hopefully this sight of amazing shoes can make […]

New Saint Crispin Brogues for Leatherfoot – In Bold Colors!

  This is probably the cleanest example that I have ever seen of a “proper” purple leather used in footwear and it’s quite commendable to be honest. I have always been intrigued by the idea of a proper purple being used on a pair of smart shoes but as it is hard to come by, I sort of just forgot about the idea of how cool it can look if done in an elegant way. Saint Cripsins […]
