Crockett & Jones – The Ross Boot

Living in a city with often adverse and astronomically dynamic weather, such as NYC where it can change 20 degrees from one day to the next, you really get to appreciate a solid, rugged boot to keep you surviving those rough days. I have always appreciated the Coniston boot by Crockett & Jones, their most famous boot ever produced worn by the thousands on Instagram, but I was more thoroughly impressed when they launched their […]

Orban’s Side Zip ‘Beatle Boot’

I normally don’t like things that have zippers on them but find the clean look of Orban’s hidden side zip ‘Beatle’ style boot quite appealing, particularly in the Dark Brown Suede. The older I get –bear in mind that is only 35– the more that I find things without laces appealing. It simply gets harder to bend over and do the darn lacing!!  And I am still quite skinny (so to speak). I guess I […]

The Triple Buckle Boot – Magnanni’s Interpretation

For those that like that heavy burnished and Italian style of shoe design, you might be pleased to know that Magnanni has recently come out with their version of the famous Triple Buckle Monkstrap boot, so eloquently adding their personal ‘Magnanni’ flair to it with a side zip for convenient function and appeal. I have never been a fan of a zipper on anything other than a jacket but for those that love the look […]

Carmina’s Shell Cordovan Chukka Boot MTO in 8 Colors

Carmina has recently done a GMTO run that is apparently over but that went into regular production as you can still purchase the pairs at hand. The latest model is this Horween Shell Cordovan chukka boot in 8 colors. Put on a Dainite sole with storm welt, I can see this boot getting a lot of use in the A/W for most chaps that like chukka boots. Being Cordovan it will be hard-wearing and good […]

Bykowski Button Boots

There is a custom clothier, Bykowski Tailor Garb, out of Austin, Texas who is making welted button boots and adding to this fine sector of the shoe industry. He has decided to offer some of his stock on The Shoe Snob Marketplace, going all the way up to UK15/US16 in some models. It’s great to see something different being offered. I like how they make the button boot more rugged looking. Something that you could […]

Changes to The Shoe Snob Marketplace

We have made some changes based on some of your feedback and wanted to show you what we did. 1. One of the most important things changed was making it easily recognizable between shoes that are sold as ‘used’ and shoes that are sold as ‘new’. Apparently there was a misconception that The Shoe Snob Marketplace is about selling used shoes but in fact, it is not. It’s purpose was creating a place where you […]
