Today’s Favorites – Crockett & Jones

Yes, it’s another saddle shoe, but the difference between this Crockett & Jones model and the rest that I display is the fact that this is an actual dress shoe model to be worn with a suit as opposed to the casual ones that I have found in the past. That’s what I love most about it. Usually you will find that saddle shoes are generally designed for a more casual model of shoe, since […]

Shoes Of The Week

Being from Seattle and America for that matter, I have never really needed to own any protect-your-feet-from-snow type of shoes. I have always liked the idea of these types of shoes but was always put off by the chunkiness of them, not really being a big fan of the clunky looking soles that they tend to have. But now I live in England and with the way the weather has been changing, I fear that […]

My Shoes #9 – Cole Haan

Over the years while working in retail, I was able to acquire a ton of free shoes. While I hoped to get Ferragamo’s, Santoni’s and all of the other shoes that I could not afford to just buy whenever I pleased, I usually wound up getting more casual, not-so-glorified shoes such as these Cole Haan’s. But it was fine, because for one thing, they were free, but also good for the simple fact that I […]

Today’s Favorites – Edward Green’s Midnight Colored Shoes

What I love most about Edward Green is that they truly offer and make their shoes in almost every color (with the exceptions of the crazy, bright colors). One of those is what they call ‘midnight,’ which would be their version of blur or navy. It’s an absolutely marvelous color and I can only dream about getting a pair myself. Instead, maybe I can buy a piece of leather off of them and make my […]

Holiday Parties – What To Wear??

I guess as we grow up, we stop thinking about what Christmas presents we are going to get or what’s going to be under the next flap on the advent calendar and we start planning out which holiday parties we are going to grace our presence with. More importantly, we think about what we are going to wear in order to look better than everyone else at the party. Well, if your idea already involves […]

Today’s Favorites – Zonkey Boots

Hailing from Austria, Zonkey Boot is a brand new line that seems to be an extension of well known shoe company, Saint Crispin’s. Michael Rolling, who is the founder and still head designer of Saint Crispin’s, just recently created this new venture, Zonkey Boot to be released for the Spring/Summer 2011 season. While they can currently only be found in 3 stores worldwide, I have a feeling that they will soon become more sought after […]

Shoe Of The Week

As one of Gaziano & Girling’s new designs for 2010, the ‘Walkton’ is a very cool two-toned spectator that is looking to make it’s way into my top five favorites of G&G’s RTW shoes. Partly because I am such a sucker for wingtips, partly because I really like this reddish brown color that they love using, and partly because it is a mixture between pebble grain and calfskin. But mainly because it really just looks […]

Today’s Favorites – Marc Guyot’s Unique Derby

The French never cease to amaze me when it comes to being stylistically and colorfully creative in the world of shoes. Here you can see that shoe designer Marc Guyot achieved just that by slightly modifying the design of the common derby model. What I like most about it, is that the extra piece of leather gives you the chance to add another color into the mix, as Mr. Guyot did as well. While I […]

Shoemaking Blogs – Additions To My Blogroll

I know that some of the people who read my blog are always hoping to see a little bit more of the construction side of the shoe industry. Considering that it has been a struggling continuation for myself to actually keep up with my shoemaking, therefore not being able to provide more blog posts on the subject, I figured that I would spread the love and the knowledge by adding some shoemaking blog links to […]
