Today’s Favorites – Helm Boots

Considering that, where I live, it has snowed seven inches (18cm) in the last day and I am trapped in my flat, I figured that I would post some more boots to correlate with this cold winter season! These boots are by Helm, a company based out of Austin, Texas, USA who recently launched this boot line back in 2009. I like the idea this company seems to have adopted of just sticking to one […]

Shoes Of The Week

 Men’s Shoes: As you can see, I am on this boot fixation at the moment. But when you see something good, you just have to show it. This boot by Carreducker, called “The Special,” is another great example of using little details to enhance your product. As some of you may know already, I am a super fan of mixing leathers and fabrics, such as tweed or like in this case, Prince of Wales check. […]

Today’s Favorites – Edward Green ‘Galway’ boot

Like I keep saying, this season’s big thing is lace-up boots and the Edward Green ‘Galway’ is one of the nicer options that I have seen thus far. You can’t help but enjoy the fact that it comes in so many color options, especially for those that already have a black or brown boot. This gives you the option to spice it up a bit with a gray or maybe even green pair!!

My Shoes #5 – Sebago

Like I stated in my post, 4 Shoe Essentials For Autumn, everyone needs a solid boot for the fall/winter seasons. Considering that this whole Red Wing phenomenon is taking place and almost everything that is coming out was somehow inspired by it, I decided to go with the sleekest option. What’s great about the Fairhaven boot (pictured above) by Sebago is the fact that it has that workman’s boot appeal but it’s sole is not […]

Shoes Of The Day

Men’s Shoes 2010 has been the year of great collections, companies I normally don’t like actually putting out good product and also the year of more color. And that’s great!! One of those brands that I never really liked was J.Shoes. Yet, their new fall/winter season consists of a range of wingtip boots (pictured above and below), style called ‘Andrew,’ that I am particularly fond of. Hailing from Britain, J.Shoes used to be a brand […]

Blue Suede Shoes

Shoes: Salvatore Ferragamo “Fausto” There is something about a blue suede shoe that just speaks to me. Maybe it’s because my favorite color is blue, maybe it’s because they are rarely found or maybe it’s because in suede, blue looks better on a shoe? While I am not sure why I am so gravitated towards them, I do know that there is nothing quite like them. It would seem that I am obviously not the […]

Sebago’s Comeback

It truly is funny how everything reinvents itself and what was once the ‘in’ thing in popular culture 30-50 years ago becomes once again the ‘in’ thing in today’s modern culture. The two styles that frighten me about this constant reinvention, though, are the 80’s and men wearing bell-bottom’s with platform shoes. I cringe just thinking about the return of those atrocities. This act of reinvention is one of the reasons for Sebago’s current position […]

4 Shoe Essentials For Autumn

This summer has been quite interesting with it’s record highs and record lows and yet while it is still only the beginning of September, I am ready for autumn to come! I love the sun and being warm but I have never appreciated the simplicity of dressing in the summer. Instead, I have always loved seeing all of the intricate and uniquely layered outfits that are created in the autumn and winter seasons. That being, […]

Shoe Of The Day

Like I have said before and like I will say again, detailing is what sets things apart in this world! Without those blue shoelace holders this would just be another nice suede dress boot. But with them, this boot by Rivolta is simply amazing!! My only wonder is whether or not the owner (author of blog Permanent Style, which is a great read for style knowledge and advice) tucks his jeans in when he wears […]

Shoe Of The Day

These shoes, by St. Crispins, represent the same ideas I have for when I start my own line. This idea of taking relatively classic styles and giving them a twist with multiple fabrics, colors and other little details has always captured my interest. For me it really just sets the shoe apart, especially a black pair. Without the extra detailing, black shoes are relatively boring. Adding the smallest detail, such as a giving the brogueing […]
