Rainy Day? Wear Suede

There is a reason why you should wear good suede. And that reason is that it handles rain better anything else. Now when I say this, I am talking about suedes darker than Snuff suede because any sand-like color suede, or lighter, cannot withstand the rain mainly for the dirt that comes along with those wet days. And that simple fact about light suede is what has most likely given suede a bad rep. But […]

JM Weston Oxford Boot – Beautiful!

This is a great example of how the details of a shoe/boot can help to separate itself from the rest of the competition. That being what you have here in this lovely JM Weston, is a semi-short (7 eyelets, as opposed to the common 8-9) oxford boot, that has an intricate stitching that acts as the heel counter, as well as the facing stitch, being connected all the way around. Another detail is the enlarged […]

Today’s Favorites – Rider Boot Co.

As you can imagine, I have a collection of images that must range in the thousands and because of that, it can become quite difficult remembering what I have and what I want to put up. I am constantly just browsing the net, saving dozens of pictures at a time, of all of the beautiful and unique shoes that I come across. Because of that, and having so darn many, I have to literally just […]

My Shoes #16 – Momentum

For a while now, I have been eye-balling this style of shoe/boot but was having a hard time finding one that I really liked. That, in part, is because I am picky and secondly because a lot of the boots that come with this style of lacing, usually are accompanied by a super thick and rugged sole that I just don’t like. So when I found these, and the cheap price that went with them […]

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!!
