Chukka Boots in Color?

I love a good chukka boot. But I have always mainly loved them in either suede or some sort of grain leather as I see chukka boots as something to wear casually i.e. with jeans, chinos, cords etc but not so much on a super smart level with a suit or anything like that. But the more that I see them in the wild (and online), the more that I am tempted by making them […]

Dandy Shoe Care Finally Launches Instagram Account!!

Dandy Shoe Care has championed Twitter and Tumblr for many years but never made the jump to Instagram. I always wondered why, especially as these days you can post on Instagram and it can automatically go to your Tumblr, Twitter, Facebook and a few other social media apps if you connect them. So in reality it is a no brainer to use as you are able to kill 4 birds with one stone and make […]

Golden Beauty by Aubercy

Most shoes that I see that are tan are brogues. And it gets a bit boring after a while as tan brogues while can be nice, just don’t really do it for me. But every now and then someone makes a tan shoe that is simply stunning and this one here by Aubercy just might take the cake for best one yet. The subtle pairing between this tan leather and the light snuff looking suede […]

Taft Boots – Something Unique

Like a broken record, I will repeat that it is always refreshing to see shoes/designs that are ‘different.’ And Taft shoes/boots are anything but the ‘norm.’ They offer a fresh, modern twist not only on the derby boot but even on their shoes, incorporating a lot of woven leather. And not only do they make a twist with their signature contrasted cap, but also do a lot of natural (or lighter colored) sole edgings which […]

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 […]

The Shine – Polish Patina Service

The world of patina is growing day by day and it would not surprise me if it soon becomes as popular as mirror shine shoe polishing (what I mean by that is that people at home will start giving it a try) as curiosity is ever expanding in the world of shoes and people are no longer content with just watching things on the internet. Now they want to try it too!! But until that […]
