Today’s Favorites – Rider Boot Co.

As you can imagine, I have a collection of images that must range in the thousands and because of that, it can become quite difficult remembering what I have and what I want to put up. I am constantly just browsing the net, saving dozens of pictures at a time, of all of the beautiful and unique shoes that I come across. Because of that, and having so darn many, I have to literally just […]

The Perfect Winter Boot

Septieme Largeur A few weeks ago, I did a post about the 5 Essential Shoes for Winter and listed that a heavy brogue boot would definitely be one of those shoes to get you through these cold months. What I did not realize then and just recently stumbled upon was the fact that there is another boot, not too far off from this, which I believe could be the ONE shoe (boot) that anyone would […]

Today’s Favorites – Rider Boot Co.

I must say that these are absolutely stunning!! The fabric on these just might be one of the nicest one’s that I have seen thus far, paired with a boot or shoe. I particularly like when a black leather shoe (or boot) is paired with a fabric that is a mixture between black and white, which in turn gives off a gray look, as is the case with this amazing herringbone tweed by Rider Boot […]

Today’s Favorites – Rider Boot Co. Sketches

Looking at these, makes me feel bad about my sketches. Not that I couldn’t draw something this well. I am sure that I could (well, almost as good) if I actually put my mind to it, but I just don’t think that I have the patience. My simple sketches take me long enough. Drawings like these would take me like 4-5 hours, minimum. But I cannot deny that they are absolutely amazing! If you go […]

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 […]

Colored/Contrasting Laces

Shoes By: Markowski When it comes to French shoemakers and French men, in general, I have to say: THEY ARE THE MOST DARING!!!! Even more so than the stylish and bold Italians, the French will do things that no one else does or even tries. A close second may be the Japanese. But where else can you find bright blue shoes paired with pink laces and actually see someone wearing these on the streets? Some […]

Boots – A Man’s Necessity

Whether it’s one of those disgusting Mark Nason boots, a simple chukka boot or a nice dress boot I feel like every man in his right mind wants or needs to own at least one pair of boots to solidify his manhood. “Boot: The man’s shoe!” Maybe it is just me but ever since ads have created something showing what a man’s man looks like and the fact that in the ad, this man is […]
