Bright Socks – Best for Hot Days

When you live in a cold and/or grey place it is not so desirable to do two things that are frequently done in warmer climates: 1. Wear bright socks and 2. Go sockless. Having lived in NYC for a year now I have started to do more of both. It is just so hot here and wearing dark colors just makes you feel hotter. And some days wear anything (on your feet) is just a […]

Contribute a Blog Post to The Shoe Snob Blog

If I am going to be frank with all of you, as my business expands and responsibilities become greater (and have written more posts that I can remember), it becomes increasingly difficult to not only find the time to make long, informative posts, but also to come up with content that I have yet to cover. As we as people simply cannot do it all alone all of the time, sometimes we need a little […]

My Story — The 5 Year Plan: Starting the Blog

Read previous posts on My Story HERE My father was my business role model. Not because I wanted to be like him (because I always wanted to be my own man, the nature of a Capricorn) but because he was wicked smart, fearless, adventurous, naturally intelligent with a ton of common sense, caring, selfless and I wanted to learn from all of those things. And in being those, I would always share my ideas with […]

The Shoe Snob Spring Cleaning – My Shoes For Sale!!!

As many of you know, I moved to NYC last June and in doing so had to get rid of a lot of stuff as not to hoard my way over to the States. Shipping internationally gets costly. So, I had a run at selling off like 40 pairs of shoes and now have another 28 pairs to part with. Many of these, as usual, are in immaculate condition having seen the light of day less […]

My Story — The 5 Year Plan — The Year of Transition — Part 2: Back to Italy

I flew back to Italy knowing my fate with Stefano. No shoes sold meant no placement for me. I could feel it, especially as it was obvious that Stefano’s business was struggling as he was often very stressed you know that rumors spread quickly in small places. But even so he couldn’t offer me anything he still allowed me to hang out continuing to make shoes as I could only be in Italy for 2 […]

Previous post on ‘My Story’: https://www.theshoesnobblog.com/2018/03/my-story-the-5-year-plan-italy-part-2.html Going home felt weird but I knew that it was a means to an end and I had to work hard to get back on track with my dreams and soon enough I would be reunited with my girlfriend so I kept my head to the ground and concentrated on those two things, putting in a lot of hours at work and doing what I could to keep learning and […]

My Story — The 5 Year Plan…..The First Two

  My father was an entrepreneur and a complete salesman. He could talk to anyone at any time about anything. But he didn’t believe in school, not the brick and mortar ones but rather the school of life and the ideology of ‘Just go out and do it’…….“Just go make it happen Justin, don’t make excuses,” he would often tell me. He dropped out of high school at 17, waited tables and bartended for 15 […]
