Shoes Of The Week – Lodger Jodhpur Boots

It’s always nice being able to find a shoe that it is truly unique in it’s design. I take that back, it is truly amazing to find something that is unique in it’s design and looks great.

If they are not your thing, sorry, deal with it! I love seeing saddle shoes that come in combination’s that are different from the typical golf-shoe looking saddle that has a white-base with a red, blue, or black saddle. To me, while I […]
