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, […]

Crockett & Jones – SS2013 New Suede Loafer Collection

As the summer time comes (if it ever really does here in London), my mind and sartorial inclinations are often being directed towards loafers, particularly suede ones. Walking past the Crockett & Jones shop in the Burlington arcade the other day, I couldn’t help but notice the new Teign model in green suede with crepe sole. While not properly captured here, the shade of that green was simply spectacular and even better was the addition […]

Crockett & Jones Green Suede Cavendish

Green is really starting to grow on me as a color of attire, whether it be in your jumper, your tie, your trousers, and especially your footwear! However, certain shades of green are certainly better than others, as is quite obvious. This shade here is probably one of the nicest and richest shades of green that I have ever seen on a pair of shoes. A lot of times, when you start to dabble in […]

John Lobb x Paul Smith = Absolute Greatness!

I know that I have been on a roll with my ‘How To Become A Shoe Designer’ thread, but as many people may not want to become one, nor really care to read about it, I figured I would give it a week’s rest and instead touch on another subject that I find to be quite an appealing project within the shoe industry. So, that being, for those of you whom may not know, September […]

The Next Big Trend: Colored Chukka Boots

Picture Courtesy of Septieme Largeur Year after year, there are new trends in the shoe industry, some of which are great and some of which are crap. I believe that the next big one that you will start to see popping up from brand after brand, is colored chukka boots. Some companies have already started leading the way by bringing them out in their current collections, and others I know will soon follow. I happen […]

Today’s Favorites – Carmina

There is a sleeping giant in the shoe industry that not many people realize yet is soon going to be a major player, and that giant is Spain. For many years, Spain has been a producer of high quality shoes coming from several factories such as Carmina (which is shown here) and Magnanni, not to mention others that are less known. But only until recently, I believe, have people started to catch on, as the […]

My Shoes Part 3 – Paul Smith

There is nothing like a great, green pair of shoes!! I have two pairs and I love both of them. They are just so versatile. This pair by, Paul Smith, is my suede option. While this really can be worn all year long, I especially love wearing them in the Autumn. I just feel like the dark green color paired with the suede texture really corresponds to the feel of the fall and the types […]
