Classic shapes, repulsive beauty and stunning creativity in footwear.
Welcome to Shoe Pr0n.
You won't find any dainty strappy numbers, flip flops, or gladiator sandals here. If you think Uggs or Crocs are acceptable forms of footwear, we probably won't get along. There are a million shoe blogs out there, but as this one is curated by me it is obviously going to be full of fabulous things.
As many of you probably know by now, I’m a shoe designer and shoemaker as well as a shoe blogger. It just so happens that I’m the middle of prototyping some of my designs, and helping a class of students learn the art of shoemaking. So please forgive the slight delay in additional Shoe Pr0ns, and trust that I will have some awesome stuff to show you soon!
It’s unusual to see a brogued shoe like this without laces. But this marries the loafer and brogue aesthetics beautifully together on a luggage-brown vegetable tanned leather. I love the burnished toe, too.
If you’re not familiar with the English brand Edward Green, but are a fan of beautiful men’s shoes, go here and enjoy the wonder.
Although his inspiration is clear I think in this case Levi managed to design something both beautiful and clever. You could wear these and never once have someone ask if you are wearing elephants on your feet.
