Spectator Season Has Returned – Cobbler Union

Cobbler Union Spectator

 

The sun is finally showing itself more than not so these days and while I love A/W for the layering and use of more fabric/cloth inspired footwear, I can’t help but appreciate seeing the sun. And now that the sun is out, it means that we call start being a bit more bold in our footwear as it is not so frowned upon to be daring when everyone else is half naked anyway. That being, I have always loved a nice spectator as it’s strong contrast (if done well) can create a very pleasing aesthetic. Cobbler Union (US brand, made in Spain) has probably one of the best Spectators on offering in my opinion and at $425 a pop, does not present a bad value at all, especially for a goodyear welted shoe using top French calfskin. For those of you looking to add a bit of spice to your wardrobe with some dashing two toned greatness, look no further than this model here.
