Paul Parkman Launches Bit Loafers

Used to be that you only found Bit loafers from the top Italian designer brands, think Gucci, Ferragamo and Prada. But 2019 brought to you a whole wave of makers coming out with their own version of the classic Bit Loafer model. As the saying goes, style always reinvents itself and as of late, it has done so with this love/hate model. The reason I say love/hate model as I really think that when it […]

More Teal Shoes in 2020 – The Next Big Color

Many years back when I was living in London, I visited the John Lobb shop on Jermyn st and found this awesome pair of double monks in dark teal suede. I was immediately enamored with this shoe and probably would have bought it if it was not 5x out of my budget. I had seen teal in patina prior to this shoe but never in an actual pre-dyed suede or leather color. I immediately thought […]

Teal Suede Double Monks by John Lobb

I have always loved the color Teal, especially when it is on the darker side so that it is not overly ostentatious (at least in the matter of clothing). And while I never actually owned that many articles of clothing in the color teal (as no one makes it), I have always loved the idea of teal shoes. But no one makes them as it is not only hard to make as a color, but […]

My Shoes #12 – Sperry Slip-On

Over the last weekend, we actually had some really nice days in which the sun stayed out for longer than 3 hours. Considering that I am limited in the shoes that I have with me in England and that I need to post new shoes for each week, I figured that with the sun out, it would be the perfect time to pretend like it was summer and break out my classic Sperry slip-on’s. During […]

Today’s Favorites – Grenson Spring/Summer 2011

It really doesn’t get much more exciting than this!! For the Spring/Summer 2011 lineup, Grenson is offering all of the things that I wish every company would offer: colored laces, contrasted colored soles, teal/blue colored shoes, some form of saddle shoe, spectators etc. I love the fact that someone (besides me) has made a teal colored shoe that can be sold to the world. I really hope that many distributing stores buy those shoes so […]

Shoe Of The Day

Shoes like this give me inspiration!! Knowing that they exist and people are wearing them only makes me feel better about wanting to start my own shoe line. When I searched for this shoe (Florsheim by Duckie Brown) online I saw that at most of the sites that sold it over the net were close to sold out, with the exception of Zappos that has an inventory so big it must be hard to sell […]

Shoe Of The Day

In case you didn’t realize, the sneaker industry is boomin’ and is only about to get bigger! Part of that boomin’ industry is the young and successful Clae, which is the brand that created this shoe. While this shoe, called the ‘Bruce,’ comes in several other colors I chose to show the teal colored version just to stress my observation of teal being the color of 2010 in the casual/sneaker shoe industry. Even Sperry has […]

Adidas + Ransom Collaboration

In case you haven’t heard yet, Canadian shoe design company and retailer, Ransom, has recently created a line of shoes in collaboration with the one of the original pioneers of sneakers, Adidas. From my research it would appear that this collaboration is in it’s second season, starting in F/W ’09 and has just released their S/S ’10 package. Based on what I have seen thus far and what I am showing you here it goes […]
