Shoe Of The Day

This shoe is possibly one of my all-time favorite shoes that I have encountered. The perfection of it is mind boggling and needless to say that this modern version of a spat inspired style is beauty at its finest! The shoe is by Laszlo Vass and I believe that this was a bespoke shoe made for a customer of his. All of the elements in this shoe came together so beautifully to make something that […]

Shoe Of The Day

When it comes to shoes made from crocodile, I feel like people either love them or hate them but when it comes to this particular pair here, even if you hate them, you have to appreciate the idea of them and the craftsmanship. From what I gathered on the website, these were a custom made shoe for the company, Harley Davidson, by Anthony Delos, who is a French shoemaker. If you look at the close-up […]

Adidas + Ransom Collaboration

In case you haven’t heard yet, Canadian shoe design company and retailer, Ransom, has recently created a line of shoes in collaboration with the one of the original pioneers of sneakers, Adidas. From my research it would appear that this collaboration is in it’s second season, starting in F/W ’09 and has just released their S/S ’10 package. Based on what I have seen thus far and what I am showing you here it goes […]

Shoe Of The Day

While I may never wear this color combination I think that the idea is absolutely fabulous!! It definitely brings a new element to your outfit having the sole of your shoes being in entirely different, contrasting color than the rest of the shoe. It makes me think all of my favorite color combinations and how I would pair them together with this idea to make some very cool shoes. I only hope that these become […]

The Whole-Cut Shoe

If you look up the word elegant in Dictionary.com the first definition that it gives is: “Tastefully fine or luxurious in dress, style, design, etc.” To me, the whole-cut dress shoe sums this definition up to a ‘T.’ The fact that it has no stitching (apart from the heel) leaves it completely refined and flawless. Obviously not every whole-cut ever made has fit this description but when they have been made properly, with a beautiful […]

Shoes Of The Day

Something about unique colored shoes just intrigues me. Probably because 90% of the time you tend to just see the same boring colors day in and day out and every blue moon you catch a glimpse of someone who happens to wear something outside of the boring spectrum and that person just seems to stand out like a sore thumb. I would love to see the owner of these shoes wearing these on the streets […]

Shoe Of The Day

While I was apprenticing in the workshop of Stefano Bemer, my friend Matteo was making this shoe for a client and because of it’s uniqueness and beauty I just had to take a picture of it. In case you can’t see color very well, it is a deep emerald green and the leather is cordovan. The fact that it was cordovan was what intrigued me due to the fact that you usually only see this […]

Spring Time = Boat Shoes

Every year in the States, without fail, you see the boat shoes come out just as sure as the sun does. You would think that the wearing of boat shoes would be an American pastime considering the amount of men that break them out each year. And why wouldn’t they? The classic boat shoe serves many purposes. Not only are they used for boating activities but they have also been adopted into society as a […]
