The Simple Boot by VASS

I have been really really getting into boots as of late. I mean, far worse than I already was if you can believe that. The more that I see them the more that I want them, all styles included too; from balmoral boots, to spat boots, to derby Boots and all the lovely chukka boots. Doing a count in my head, I just realized that I now own 8 boots (after literally just giving one […]

Today’s Favorites – Alfred Sargent

While I am usually not into heavy looking shoes, I must say that this model by Alfred Sargent, is one of the nicest ‘working man’ type of boots that I have ever seen. Thanks to a reader of mine from Finland (who sent me this picture), I was able to gain some appreciation for this ‘denim’ type of boot, as he described it. As I love jeans myself — although I am no ‘denim head’– […]

Today’s Favorites – Rider Boot Co.

I must say that these are absolutely stunning!! The fabric on these just might be one of the nicest one’s that I have seen thus far, paired with a boot or shoe. I particularly like when a black leather shoe (or boot) is paired with a fabric that is a mixture between black and white, which in turn gives off a gray look, as is the case with this amazing herringbone tweed by Rider Boot […]

Today’s Favorites – Barker Black

Here are just a few of the bad-ass Barker Black shoes that grace shoe shelves around the world. While I have known about Barker Black for quite some time, I have yet to really put their shoes up on my blog and I can’t realize why, especially since I think that they make some very cool shoes. I guess, like many things, it just slipped my mind. But better late than never, right? Right! Anyway, […]

Shoes Of The Week

Men’s Shoes: One can always count on Ferragamo to make a beautiful red shoe. I wonder if red was Salvatore’s favorite color because the company never seems to shy away from adding a pair to their men’s collection if not once a year then a minimum of once ever two years. And while that may not seem like a lot, some shoe companies never add a pair of red shoes to any of their collections. […]

Boots Above: Vaneau by Vaneau Boots Above: Scarpe Di Bianco Boots Above: Helm Boots Above: Gaziano & Girling Boots Above: Edward Green I look at the rain and wind outside and I am thankful for the one pair of chelsea boots that I own but now I realize that I need at least a black pair, for sure, and maybe another in some unique color like navy or gray…..

Today’s Favorites – Edward Green ‘Galway’ boot

Like I keep saying, this season’s big thing is lace-up boots and the Edward Green ‘Galway’ is one of the nicer options that I have seen thus far. You can’t help but enjoy the fact that it comes in so many color options, especially for those that already have a black or brown boot. This gives you the option to spice it up a bit with a gray or maybe even green pair!!
