Materna Boots – Built To Last

Materna Boots - Built To Last

Well, it would seem that the busy life of a shoe shiner and upcoming shoe designer is starting to take its toll on the ‘ol blog. As most of you may know, on Mondays, I usually like to start my week with a nice long post with a bit more informative content with respects to my other daily rants. As you can tell, it’s now Tuesday and I am still struggling to get out more than a few sentences to supply all of you with. I do apologize, but it would seem that I have truly spread myself too thin, and things are starting to get sacrificed. While my delays in answering comments and emails are starting to get longer and longer, and I can’t promise a long post on each Monday, I do promise that no matter what, I will still answer everything and that a long post will come, just maybe not on the same day every week.

That being, allow me to present these lovely by George Materna.There is something quite appealing in a nice rugged dress boot, a boot that has a leather sole but looks sturdy and elegant at the same time. And this right here is the perfect example of it and is what I have being thinking about doing for my own collection as well (for a later season and with a twist of course!). I have always liked the idea of a heavy brogue boot, but never liked the heavy lug sole, not at least on me or underneath my slim trousers, But a boot like this, that has the sturdy look but with a nice proper leather sole, presents the perfect balance between jean-manliness and casual-elegance! And of course, what better than a lovely shade of burgundy…..
