Red Pebble Grain by Scarpe di Bianco

You don’t often see red pebble grain. You don’t often see red shoes altogether. What I like about this pebble grain by Scarpe di Bianco though is the fact that it makes the red a lot more subtle and thus wearable. Without that grain in place and just being a plain calfskin, it would be a tough shoe to wear. But having it be a grain, for me, makes it a bit easier to swallow. […]

Red Gaziano & Girling Wholecuts…

Vintage Cherry by Gaziano & Girling is quite possibly the best shade of red the footwear industry has ever seen.

Leatherfoot Online Shoe Stock – Heavy, Heavy Shoe Porn!!

Carmina – Ruby shell cordovan Can’t remember whether or not I mentioned this before on the blog (but I am sure that I did), that a new shop in Toronto, Canada (called Leatherfoot) just recently opened, selling the likes of G&G, Saint Crispins, Alfred Sargent, Carmina and La Cordennerie Anglaise. I just recently perused the site and found what looked like the holy grail of online shoe shopping. I mean, there was everything from these […]
