New Shoes on The Marketplace – Sept. 9th

The Shoe Snob Marketplace (or The Marketplace) has really gained some new beauties in the last week. It would seem that people are cleaning out their closets and looking for new homes for their beloved shoes. And some people on here have some real stunners and at great prices. This Carmina in green shell being my favorite and for $490 (plus shipping) is not a bad deal at all considering that they are BRAND NEW!!! […]

Gaziano & Girling – 25% Off End of Line Models

It’s and of an era for many Gaziano & Girling classic models. G&G is going through their end of line Summer Sale and offering some models that I remember since day one, like the Wigmore and Hayes in the Rioja calf. But such is the life of a shoe line. A good model will give you years of sales and then one day you realize you have had it too long and need to refresh […]

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. JM Legazel also has a few interesting one-off’s on there too. Some feedback that I have though is for the sellers and potential sellers. I see lots of people adding shoes but not a ton of sales and […]

Gaziano & Girling – The New Classic Range

Gaziano & Girling have decided to shake things up in their brand by continuing to expand on the amount of collections they offer. First it was the Deco line, a very sharp and elegant semi handmade dress shoe that took the industry by storm with the tightest waist one has ever seen in RTW. Then it was the Fresco line, a Spring/Summer range filled with elegant loafers and whatnot. But now they make the boldest […]

LONDON SUPER TRUNK SHOW 2019 – BRAND SHOWCASE #6 — Gaziano & Girling Odd’s & End’s

For the first time in the London Super Trunk Show event, we invite a British Maker easy to acquire in the UK. But what makes this different is the fact that Gaziano & Girling will be bringing things that you cannot simply acquire by going to their shop on Savile Row. They will be bringing an assortment of odd’s and end’s from 2nds, MTO’s/Bespoke made incorrectly, leftover stock etc. all stuff that is usually only shown at […]

Green Shoes – Trend or ‘The Future’?

We have a special guest post today, written by my colleague Ché, all about the idea of green in footwear.  We have seen a lot of it lately. Is it here to stay? Is it a trend? Let’s discuss…. –Justin Ever consider dark green as an alternative to your black shoes? Might I suggest this as an overlooked option…I know, I know…green sounds a bit wild. A deep, rich green will be understated. At first glance, […]

HRH Prince of Wales Visit to Gaziano & Girling

It would appear that Gaziano & Girling had the honor and pleasure of hosting the Prince of Wales and Future King into their factory while at the same time honoring him with a very beautiful and unique pair of oxfords. I have to say that the medallion is absolutely gorgeous. It is apart of the emblem of the Royal Family for those that might not be familiar with it and I think that it suits […]

The Great Shoe Circle

I think that this takes the cake for the greatest shoe circle that I have ever seen. It certainly isn’t the most impressive shoe collection (not to say it is not impressive but I have seen some that span upwards of 250 pairs) but it certainly is the best presented circle of shoes I have ever seen, not only for what the shoes are being a mix of literally every type of model (except button […]

Gaziano & Girling – 2019 Sample Sale

Gaziano & Girling is soon hosting their annual sample sale and I know that many of you have been waiting for this. While we had ours in NYC this year and don’t have more stock for our London shop, our annual collaboration is put on pause this year and G&G is going at it alone in their shop on Savile Row. I can just imagine the queue down Savile Row all the way to Oswald […]
