A Fine Pair of Shoes’ New Range

Shoe and accessory retailer, A Fine Pair of Shoes, has entered into the shoe designing world, having recently made a few exclusive shoe designs under their own moniker. Being a heavy retailer of Alfred Sargent footwear, one can only imagine that the shoes are made by AS. A tidy collection of 4 models, I particularly like the fact that two of the four are blue and none of them, as one can see, are black […]

The Corthay Ghillie

I have always had this love/hate with the ghillie style shoe. It’s intriguing because it is different, but it usually makes a nice shoe look very casual and at some times, just outright ugly.

An Ode to Blue Dress Shoes

I have said it at least once and I will most likely say it at least a million times more, but the simple fact is that blue dress shoes (for me) remain the most underutilized option in the footwear industry. While certain shades of blue can pose as a bit over the top, I really don’t see how a dark navy or even that Edward Green spectator (below) would be seen as any more ostentatious […]

Leatherfoot Online Shoe Stock – Heavy, Heavy Shoe Porn!!

Carmina – Ruby shell cordovan Can’t remember whether or not I mentioned this before on the blog (but I am sure that I did), that a new shop in Toronto, Canada (called Leatherfoot) just recently opened, selling the likes of G&G, Saint Crispins, Alfred Sargent, Carmina and La Cordennerie Anglaise. I just recently perused the site and found what looked like the holy grail of online shoe shopping. I mean, there was everything from these […]
