Timberland x Harris Tweed

  I was walking on Regent st. today and noticed that the Timberland shop had some interesting shoes/boots inside. I am actually in the market for something a bit more heavy duty as I feel that it will be a harsh winter and while I love my Snoqualmie’s for a solid boot, I would rather use something that is actually fur lined and built to handle the snow (on a submerging level). So I went […]

C&J doesn’t so much promote their MTO program so much but with their immense catalogue of styles and […]

Kanpekina aka Perfetto — Japanese Greatness at it’s absolue FINEST!!!

The more the days go by, the more I feel that Japan might quickly be becoming the mecca for fine footwear and amazing shoemakers. It is known that when the Japanese culture takes ahold of something, whether it be blades, yo-yo-ing, technology or shoemaking, that once they go for it and immerse their culture into it, they don’t stop until it is perfected and they become the best at doing it. Kanperkina/Perfetto is proof of […]
