Crockett & Jones Lauches A/W 2019 Collection – ‘Black is Back!’

Crockett & Jones has launched their new A/W ’19 collection and it is quite impressive, to say the least. For the 2nd year in a row now, they have had a collection called ‘The Black Editions’ in which they pay homage to the classic black models of the shoe industry’s history.

Camouflage Sneakers by Altan Bottier

Normally I am not a fan of Camouflage clothing. I can appreciate it but I wouldn’t typically dream of wearing it. These camouflage sneakers by Altan Bottier, however, are next level. As they blend the idea of patina with camouflage, you get a very different outcome than your typical camouflage rendition of the camo look.

Get Any Shoe/Boot You Want with Enzo Bonafe

It has been a long time now that I see Enzo Bonafe making shoes that really don’t come from any collection but that are made to the precise specifications that the client asks for. That is pretty much the idea of bespoke but without the entire last/handmade from start to finish process.  You get to make your own design under their MTO program which in reality is pretty far advanced for a shoemaker to offer […]
