Correspondent Shoes – Italian Style

Correspondent Shoes - Italian Style

 

A friend of mine, who is a great lover of Italian styled shoes (specifically Bontoni and Branchini) and two-tones decided to start his own online distribution channel, ‘Correspondent Shoes,’ selling a handful of brands that cater to those that like things a bit more on the bold side. Some of the shoes on there are quite cool and some of them not so much, but I guess to each his own. The ones highlighted in the post are my favorite. While I am not so familiar with the exact quality of Branchini, I did see the blue in person and they looked like they had some very comfortable and well made leather. The finishing on the soles looks quite good too and I believe that the majority of shoes on the site are blake rapid (which is a very respectable construction) and a few even being GY welted. And it was good to see a chelsea boot with a brogued wing cap on it, not to mention the derby boot which were right up my alley! Good to see something a bit different.
