Gladiator Boots by Taft

I have never seen a pair in person but I am quite fond of what American Boot company, Taft, have been coming out with design-wise. Most things are quite unique. I won’t lie and say that I like it all as there are some not so amazing things in the collection and we all know that I hate the word ‘handmade’ on a shoe site (that are clearly made in a factory) but I at […]

Cowboy Boots Done Differently – Barbanera’s Cormac Boot

  I was never into cowboy boots. Like ever. In fact, I hated them. I hated the toe spring, the pointy toe, the high heel. They were pretty much everything I couldn’t stand about a pair of shoes/boots, all in one. And I am not exaggerating at all. And then I saw Barbanera’s Cowboy boots and it all changed for me. They took nearly everything I didn’t like and altered it. They put a dress […]

Floral Balmoral Boots by Fugashin Saigon

I am convinced that in our modern day the rules of sartorial dress are going out the door. And I don’t say this in a bad way at all, but more so that what was once considered taboo is now acceptable. Of course, for certain terrible sartorial blunders, this is a bad thing but for the over adherence to the rules of old, like ‘no brown in town’ etc., I can’t lie by saying that […]

Happy New Year from The Shoe Snob!

2017 has been a tough year on many levels but probably the best year yet in reality, as I learned a lot about life, struggle, appreciation, the fact that life goes on and feel that I can finally get back up on my feet and again start becoming the person that I want to be. Although appreciating my time in Europe, the people that I met, the experiences had, my business developed, and most importantly […]

A/W Closet Cleaning – Shoes I am Selling from My Wardrobe!

Having moved to NYC as of recent, I had to really take a look at what I was wearing and not wearing and thus what I needed and did not need. Shipping internationally is quite costly and I needed to minimize my expenditures. While there are many more shoes to come with this clearing out of my shoe closet, here is the first round of shoes that I am getting rid of to make my […]
