The Shoe Snob Trunk Shows NYC & Sweden – June/July

Each year, I hope to slowly but surely expand my brand and in doing so attempt to go to some of my favorites places for trunk shows, as well as expand to new markets if and when I can. While there is nothing new for these trips in terms of locations (country wise but am going to Gothenburg as well this time), what has happened since I was in both places is that I have […]

Hand Stitching by G&G

So I am here in the wee hours of the morning in Hong Kong, having spent half a day here and already seeing so many things and finally have spent my first bit of time in Asia. It’s quite different here to be honest, but as I am someone who always appreciates seeing new cultures and experiencing their essence, I must say that for the first night here, I have enjoyed myself quite a bit […]

The Shoe Snob/J.FitzPatrick Goes To Hong Kong & Singapore

After a year and a half of the J.FitzPatrick brand being in existence, I have finally been fortunate enough to take myself and shoes to Hong Kong and Singapore for a few trunk shows. I am quite excited, not only to meet my supporters out there but also because I have never been to that side of the world and greatly look forward to experiencing new things. I know that many of you in that […]

Dandy Shoe Care Trunk Show at Skoaktiebolaget

It would appear that as time goes on the idea of the patination of shoes becomes more and more prevalent within the shoe industry. Putting modern ideas on classic shoes is probably my absolute favorite concept as I love the designs of yesteryear but hate the idea of being stuck to the classic color offerings (i.e. black/brown/tan etc.). So seeing things like this always makes me happy as I feel that it is yet just […]

Crockett & Jones Spring/Summer 2014

Today should hopefully (fingers crossed) be the last of my crazy manic days. Therefore while I don’t have a lot of things to say about the actual post today, I would like to present the Spring/Summer collection of Crockett & Jones. Lovely pieces as always and of course it brought a smile to my face to see all of the blue suede. Even though I am friends with the digital manager of the brand, who […]

Carmina – The Review

I have always loved and respected Carmina shoes and what they do as a company. While I don’t think that Spanish shoemaking as a whole is the best in the world, I definitely don’t think that it deserves its reputation for inferiority either (Spanish shoemaking, not Carmina), particularly because of the actual good shoemakers that are out there making brilliant shoes, Carmina being among the best, if not THE BEST. I make my own shoes […]

Saint Crispins Blue Monkstrap Boot

I am such a sucker for leather being mixed with suede. It really just creates such a beautiful contrast in the footwear region and when it goes from the trouser material touching the suede to the suede touching the leather, it is simply creates the perfect harmonious match. Even better when one of the colors is blue. And double brownie points when both colors are blue! So needless to say, when a blog reader sent […]

J.FitzPatrick North America Tour

The time has finally come for me to go out into the world and attempt at not only growing my own footwear line, but meet those outside of London that have been so kind in supporting The Shoe Snob blog. That being, I have decided to embark on my first mini-tour of North America, first stopping in Toronto with a much anticipated 2-day trunk show at newly prestigious Leatherfoot, a few days in Chicago (with […]
