Shoe Of The Day

I don’t know who these are by but I think that they are a great pair of spectators. You don’t don’t see them too often in the burgundy/white pairing but I think that out of classic colors: black, brown and burgundy, all paired with white, this combo is the best of the bunch. Of course, I am still waiting to see someone pull out some crazy color combination like gray/blue or black/yellow. But I am […]

Why Are A Pair Of Nice Shoes So Important?

Look, I know that not everyone is rich or may not care about fashion nor dressing up etc. but having a nice pair of shoes is a must in being a respectable man in this world. Luckily for most, times have changed because many years ago, you were nothing if you did not dress up properly and look and act like a well spoken, clean and respectable individual. These days you have people wearing tennis […]

Shoe Of The Day

This has to be the coolest pair of buck’s that I have ever seen. On Leather Soul’s website it says that these are chocolate nubuck but they look way more like gray to me (at least in this picture), which is what I love about them. The shoes are by Edward Green and a pair like this would be one of those shoes that you could wear with the majority of things in your wardrobe. […]

Del Toro Shoes

There are always misconceptions in fashion where it is said that certain articles of clothing/shoes/accessories should or should not be worn, or should only be worn here or there or then and not now. This is all bullshit!! You should wear what the hell you want, when you want and however you want to so long as you do it well, look presentable and maintain confidence. Rules are meant to be broken. Look at how […]

Shoe Of The Day

While these shoes, by St. Crispin, are not necessarily anything out of the ordinary, what struck me as unique was the fact that the bands across the vamp area are part of the rest of the upper leather and not a separate piece like you would usually find in the average slip-on with a band. The only thing that I can gather on how it was constructed is that on the other end, that you […]

Monk Straps

Why don’t you ever see anyone wear monk strap shoes? I really can’t figure it out. You hardly ever see them for sale at stores and even more rarely see them being worn. I feel like they are going into extinction. But why?? Are you afraid to wear them? Do you like them? In my encounters with them and bringing them out to customers on the sales floor I feel like they are the leper […]

Shoe Of The Day

First off, I just want to apologize for the long absence without a proper article but planning a wedding, getting married and taking a short honeymoon takes up much of your free time. I promise that I will post one of Tuesday! To kind of drag on this wedding shoe stuff I thought that I would post something that satisfies both the classic man who wants to wear black, shiny shoes as well as the […]

Shoe Of The Day

I am a sucker for Ferragamo and it’s because of great shoes like these that they seem to always keep my interest. The uniqueness of velour always adds a touch of brilliance to that which seems to lack in being just a plain calfskin. The shoe above would be just another black driving loafer had it not been made with velour. But with the velour it is something completely different. There is a different feel […]
