Solid Winter Boot by Foster & Son

Days like today really makes one wish that he had a proper pair of boots that could not only hold up to the weather but also be semi-smart at the same time. While the weather here in London is somewhat mild to the likes of you all in NYC and other snowy places, when you look at the weather forecast and it says heavy rain for at least 24 hours, you start to feel terrified […]

The Simple Boot by VASS

I have been really really getting into boots as of late. I mean, far worse than I already was if you can believe that. The more that I see them the more that I want them, all styles included too; from balmoral boots, to spat boots, to derby Boots and all the lovely chukka boots. Doing a count in my head, I just realized that I now own 8 boots (after literally just giving one […]

EG Sale in London – Last Day…..

So after work yesterday I finally got my chance to head over to the Edward Green pop up sale to see if there was anything that I could not live without. Just so happens that there was…..more than one, but only one being affordable for my bankroll at the current moment….They also had these in the midnight blue color in a UK7.5, a half size too big for me! Anyway, I have read a bit […]

Shoes Of The Week – Crockett & Jones Archives

For the shoes alone, sometimes I wished that I was alive back in the 1910’s-30’s. Seeing that Gatsby-esque model on the left makes me understand how truly far behind we have become and how much more amazing and unique shoes were (in terms of the slight differences to the standard, that set the shoes apart). Let me rephrase that. In this day, we are able do so much more through technology and the use of […]

Shoes Of The Week – Imai Hiroki Brogue Boots

The color red is so underutilized in the shoe industry, but can truly create some of the nicest pieces of footwear. Take these boots at top for example, they are absolutely amazing and are so due to their color. I mean, the black ones below are nice too but don’t stand a chance when put next to red ones. I guess it’s a tough color to get right though….too bright and no one would wear […]

Easter Vacation & Today’s Favorites – Alfred Sargent

To all of my readers, I just wanted to let you know that I will be away on a short holiday trip to Italy from Friday to Monday and will not be around computer access. So I am sorry that until Tuesday the 26th there will not be any new posts, but this is a good time to read through my archives to see if there is any valuable information or some great shoe porn […]

Shoes Of The Week

I recently just got my first pair of lace (balmoral, galosh) dress boots — which I have yet to show all of you — and I absolutely love them! And loving them has made me somewhat mad for the idea of getting a pair for each of the different colors in the shoe spectrum, yet something that will be difficult achieving, as boots of this nature are always in the upper echelons of the cost […]

My Ideal Boot

Last year I wrote about The Perfect Boot and how a nice dress chukka could take you a long way, and frankly, I still agree with that but considering it is 2011, I wanted to switch it up a little and tell you about my ideal boot!! I have always been a big fan of how people around the world dressed in the late 1800’s-early 1900’s, also known as the Victorian and Edwardian era’s. If […]

Shoes Of The Week

Being from Seattle and America for that matter, I have never really needed to own any protect-your-feet-from-snow type of shoes. I have always liked the idea of these types of shoes but was always put off by the chunkiness of them, not really being a big fan of the clunky looking soles that they tend to have. But now I live in England and with the way the weather has been changing, I fear that […]

Today’s Favorites – Edward Green’s Midnight Colored Shoes

What I love most about Edward Green is that they truly offer and make their shoes in almost every color (with the exceptions of the crazy, bright colors). One of those is what they call ‘midnight,’ which would be their version of blur or navy. It’s an absolutely marvelous color and I can only dream about getting a pair myself. Instead, maybe I can buy a piece of leather off of them and make my […]
