Aubercy Lawrence

The most popular shoes tend to be those that are truly of their own kind and impossible to replicate. Aubercy’s Lawrence button boot is one of those shoes. This sleek, elegant captoe boot combines suede and calfskin for a nuanced middle between the casual and the formal.

This ease translates to its fit as well, which is surprisingly comfortable and light, made possible by its unique Blake construction. If you fancy yourself a bit of a dandy a pair of high button shoes is a must have for your wardrobe.

How to Use a Button Hook

Step 1 – Hold the button hook in your dominant hand while holding the button hole side of the shoe with your other hand.

Step 2 – Insert the “hook” of the button hook through the bottom hole in the shoe/boot, and with your hand pull the row of buttons toward the button hook.

Step 3 – Hook the button hook around the shank of the button and pull the button up through the button hole. Release the button from the hook once the button is above the button hole.

Button Up

High button shoe’s reached their peak of popularity around the turn of the century, the 20th century. During the 20′s “The Jazz Era” they were replaced by oxfords and wingtips. And the September 25, 1933 issue of “Time” magazine published the death of the high-button shoe, as pronounced by President Roosevelt during his first year in office. The high-button shoe was officially out.

But in the new century they’re back more elegant than ever. We commissioned Aubercy Paris the maker of fine French footwear to produce our first high button shoe in Cognac calf and Polo suede, with purple kid linings, and working button holes (button hook included) see tutorial at the bottom of this post.

Aubercy’s shoes are as comfortable as they are beautiful. First time wearer’s are always amazed just how light and soft they are. If you fancy yourself a bit of a dandy a pair of high button shoes is a must have for your wardrobe.

Aubercy Paris makes wonderful shoes, known for their continental styling and supreme comfort they look and feel fantastic. Our latest delivery includes the ever-popular wholecut oxford in cognac calf. The beauty of a wholecut shoe is the single piece of leather and clean lines, no seams to distract or bind. Aubercy shoes are Blake constructed which is one reason they are incredibly lightweight and flexible, a perfect dress shoe for summer.

The Elegance

The Aubercy wholecut is one of the most elegant shoes in our collection. For some reason it seems to draw strong attention from women when they are in the store. This is a very chic shoe and would do very well in a formal setting. In fact one of our clients recently purchased a pair to wear with his tuxedo.

I chose the red lining because of the nostalgic feeling I get when I think of black tuxedos lined in red Ala the Rat Pack, although I’m pretty sure they wore pumps with bows. Regardless, that was the inspiration.

I also like the hand-punched lines that create a very sleek and graceful look. It adds another level of interest that a plain wholecut lacks.
