Today’s Favorites – Custom Boat Shoes

Many of you may know how much of a sucker I am for a nice boat shoe which probably stems from my lack of† enthusiasm for flip flops, and therefore needing a solid replacement shoe to use during the hot months which seem to never come in sunny ‘ol England. But nevertheless, I do love a nice pair of boat shoes, and was therefore quite pleased when I saw this model by Calzoleria Giacopelli, which […]

Today’s Favorites – Buttero Boat Shoes

You may read this blog, look at all of my ‘what I am wearing’ posts, and think that I am just some snob that wears nothing but high end shoes and ‘dress’ outfits, but in actuality I am quite a casual guy. I probably have about 10-12 pairs of jeans, which are by far my all time favorite type of trousers. In reality I am a jeans guy and prancing around in my G&G’s doesn’t […]

Today’s Favorites – Clae Fall/Winter 2012

While sneakers may not appeal to all of you, I do have to pay homage every now and then, to the shoe style that birthed my profound passion for footwear. And what would be better than a sneaker that is taking influence from dress shoe styles, such as the saddle and the wing tip, as these Clae models are? What I love about the shoe industry these days is that everything is being mixed. Sneakers […]

Driving Loafers – Europe’s Summer Shoe

Depending on where you live in this world, there is always a shoe that acts as one’s ‘go-to’ model once the hot days of spring and summer start to show their face. In tropical places you have the flip-flop, in the States you have the boat shoe, and in Europe you have espadrilles and even better yet, the driving loafer. But the greatest thing about driving loafers, is that if you have the right model […]

Today’s Favorites – The Generic Man

When the sun is out, trainers are in! And considering that it has been quite nice here in the South of England, I am more and more grabbing my trainers to wear on my days off. So, in honor of all of this beautiful weather that we have been having, I figured that I would switch it up today, with some casual shoes. The shoes shown here are part of The Generic Man’s Spring 2011 […]

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 […]

My Shoes #15 – Vans

Sorry that I have not been so regular in the ‘My Shoes’ posting but I have lots of excuses like crappy weather, 4 hours of commuting a day and not enough daylight time + someone to shoot pics of me etc. But I will make it up, especially once the weather starts turning around and I eventually get all of my shoes (that are spread between England, Italy and the States) all in one place […]

My Shoes #13 & #14 – Converse Chuck Taylor’s

Considering that I missed last week of taking pics of myself to show the world my shoes, I figured that I would give you all a double-whammy this week. An all-American classic, the Chuck Taylor All-Star by Converse is probably the most recognized shoe in the world and rightfully so. I wish that I had statistics for how many people own a pair of these. In the States, I would be confident saying that 75% […]
