Mario Bemer Firenze on The Shoe Snob Marketplace

Mario Bemer Firenze (not the actual Mario Bemer whose now set up Mario Bemer USA) has listed some shoes on The Marketplace. I have always loved the featured model and one lucky chap shall grab these! Can’t wait to see someone rocking that in an outfit. The shoes range from UK8 – UK11 and are priced at $600 Some good finds for those interested in the Bemer brand! https://marketplace.theshoesnobblog.com/

Going Green with Aubercy

Parisian shoemaker, Aubercy, makes a very awesome shade of green leather. One that they in fact, use a ton and that I love to see. It’s a very deep, dark Emerald like green that is more vivid than most green shades out there. You don’t often find so many box calf skins in green (pre-dyed in the tannery) so what you tend to find is it being dyed after the fact on a crust leather. […]

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, […]

Mario Bemer’s New Model

Last June I was in Florence visiting a factory for my upcoming trainer line and managed to stop by to say hello to my friend Mario Bemer as I try to always do when in June. I was unfortunately just missing Pitti Uomo which is what he was preparing for. A part of that preparation was the launch of his new model, as seen here. I took a picture of it (as was immediately in […]

The World of Shoes – Dimitri Gomez

A new shoe website has recently been born, naturally looking to encompass everything shoes: from selling, to educating, to listing out every brand ever invented (worth mentioning that is) and all the rest that a good blog/website comes with. While it is still in its infant stages (building a proper website takes A LOT OF TIME!!!), ‘The World of Shoes‘ looks to become something of a cross between Mr. Porter and and encyclopedia of shoes. […]

The Beauty of a Good Background

Ever since starting my shoe line I have become more and more interested in photography as a form of art. It is quite amazing how the smallest details can really enhance a photo and vice versa, how the smallest details can also ruin a photo. I saw this photo on Instagram of a bespoke sample by Stefano Bemer and was blown away not only by the shoe but mainly by the photography itself (as the […]

Paolo Scafora at Pitti Uomo 89

Every Pitti Uomo I have my ritual of visiting the same shoemakers that present season after season. One of those makers is Paolo Scafora who in my mind is one of the most underrated shoemakers in the world, a great deal of which I believe is due to his wesbite that does not represent just how nice his shoes are. For those that don’t know, he has his own factory in Naples, specializes in hand […]

The Hulk of Dress Shoes

There are not many makers whose hand coloring skills compares to the likes of the team at Saint Crispins. And because of those skills, their shoes always come out looking so incredibly vivid. So vivid in fact, it makes you not want to wear them and thus ruin the perfect polish that they come with. That’s exactly how I felt when I saw this green u-cap adelaide oxford by SC for Skoaktiebolaget. I love the […]

Green = Next Year’s Color

  I have some gut feeling that Green is the color of 2016. I see more and more companies using it for their shoes and more and more people buying it (at least from what I see online, not so much in the streets!). I do intend to have at least one green shoe in my collection as I once had and know that for sure one will be in this new, beautiful green suede […]

Crockett & Jones A/W Collection Now Shown – Coming Soon

  Summer has only been a month going but for me it feels like it is almost over and I can’t say why but it does. And possibly because you are already seeing A/W stock in the stores. Soon enough S/S will launch in Nov. and A/W will come in April. What is the world coming to? It has become like a race to ‘who launches first’ and thus makes all of the sales. Not […]
