New Shoes on The Marketplace – July 2nd 2019

The Marketplace is growing. People have a lot of shoes they want to get rid of and are listing them here. We have all kinds of makers listed on The Marketplace. And remember not all of the shoes are used. For example the Septieme Largeur shoes below in UK7/US8 are all brand new, and listed for a steal of a price at that! Whoever is lucky enough to be that size is going to win! […]

The Shoe Snob Marketplace – New Shoes Up and Growing!

The Shoe Snob Marketplace is gaining traction. More and more people are getting their shoes on there and we even have a few brands participating, one of them being Carlos Santos with a whole range of shoes.

I see lots of people adding shoes but not a ton of sales and […]

Diamond Cut Cap Toes by Enzo Bonafe for Skoaktiebolaget

A suede shoe is usually seen as your more casual option of footwear as the rough texture doesn’t lend itself to a shine or a sleek look like calfskin does. But for me it also matters the pattern of the shoe. This very sleek diamond cut cap toe adelaide by Enzo Bonafe for Skoaktiebolaget to me is very dressy looking. I would put this under any suit and think that the man wearing these is […]

More Burgundy Shoes = Progression

  Its always refreshing to see brands stocking a good pair of burgundy shoes. I am not talking about the safe color of oxblood or plum, I am talking about a bright and bold burgundy shade of leather. One that is on the verge of red rather than the opposite and darker spectrum of that shade. Burgundy is a captivating color that for me commands the eye and always leaves people in awe and admiration […]

Leffot – New Products for NYC

I always look forward to seeing what retailers are stocking in their shops as new pieces and makers they bring on board. Now of course, I never care about the boring black oxford that they will stock, but do more so like seeing the choice daring pieces that I know that they are taking a risk on, like these Brighton loafers by Corthay. I had someone ask me recently, ‘Justin, don’t you ever get afraid […]

Enzo Bonafe Chukka Boot for Skoaktiebolaget

It doesn’t get much better than a good chukka boot. They are just so darn comfortable and more importantly versatile. I recently re-launched the chukka boot for my collection of shoes and I find myself wearing it at least twice a week which is quite astounding as most of my shoes don’t see daylight for at least once a month, if not less frequently. It’s funny how we go through phases as people. Right now […]
