Le Major Dome – Boots with a Swiss Twist

Swiss shoemaker, Le Major Dome, definitely does design differently. And we all know how much I appreciate that. And one aspect of that idea is their boot design, which is very much unlike other class welted shoemakers. And as many of you will also know, I am very much a boot guy so always appreciate seeing new ideas of how to execute this very important part of the shoe industry! The highlighted boot (at the […]

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 […]

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 […]
