With 2021 on the horizon here some suggestions for you, whether you’re looking for style, comfort or versatility. It’s important we start the New Year with a spring in our step.
My first suggestion for a stylish shoe would have to be the Sanders London, from Sanders Diplomat collection. The London is a classic Oxford full brogue, made in Sanders’ Rushden factory where they have been hand making shoes since 1873. Made with premium leathers on Sanders’ Ken last that provides a smart look. This shoe is great if you’re looking to turn heads at the office or have any smart occasions to attend. The London is available in; ebony calf, tan calf, black calf and black suede. Sanders are rather a well-kept secret. They’re not widely known but the quality of their shoes is outstanding.
My second suggestion is a stylish boot, the De Winter Bodiam. The Bodiam is brogue lace boot in brown waxed calf. The fine waxed calf leather adds good weather proofing properties and the four lace eyelets and three ski hooks allow easy access. The Bodiam is made on the De Winter Hurst last that provides an elegant toe shape like no other boot on the market. Making the Bodiam perfect for any events where a boot is needed but you want to keep it stylish.
If its comfort you’re looking for, then look no further than a good quality moccasin loafer, the Loake Donington. A moccasin is great for an easy run-around or just for lounging around at home. The flexibility also make them fantastic for those with wider feet in addition to being a great driving shoe. No more hindrance and worry of creasing you can get when you drive in a sturdier shoe. The easy construction also results in a less expensive shoe which is obviously a bonus. The Donington is available in; light blue suede, navy suede, grey suede, green suede and tan suede.
If it’s footwear with a bit of versatility you’re after, look no further than the Loake Pimlico from Loake’s 1880 collection. Made on the ever popular Capital last, this 3 eyelet chukka boot is a great for a casual look but also quite smart enough to be worn formally. The Pimlico is available in; dark brown calf, black calf and brown suede.
