Church’s Sahara, Navy or Sand Suede

Lightweight boots are a must for spring and summer, and Church’s Sahara are a classic option. They’re Goodyear welted on natural plantation crepe soles, which makes them extremely comfortable and stylish. Made in unlined navy or sand suede on the rounded 81 last, they’ll work with jeans, chinos, or cords for a great casual look.

Blue Shoes

If you’re looking to take a step beyond classic brown and black calfskin shoes, consider trying something in blue. It’s a surprisingly versatile color that works well with chinos, odd trousers, or white jeans in the summer. And if it’s winter, they pair nicely with medium or charcoal trousers or winter whites. So listen here: you need not be timid when it comes to wearing blue shoes. Just don’t let anyone step on them.

Church’s Suede Kaber – Restock

For a couple of years now we’ve stocked Church’s Kaber in brown calf. It is one of the most unique shoes we stock, with loads of style. It’s a loafer, monk strap, kiltie and brogue all in one. The only thing it’s missing is laces and a zipper.

Now this popular shoe is back in two colors of suede. The lush navy suede is the perfect balance between subtly and individuality, making it perfect to wear with more formal attire as well as casually. The more casual burnished brown suede version is made in a distressed leather that gives it loads of character.

Church’s Kaber

Made in Northampton, England by Church’s & Co, these brogues have loads of style. They are a bit of a dandy shoe you might say. First re-issued in 2010, the Kaber has become a long standing fixture at our store.

Both styles, one is brown nevada calf, and another in both black pebble grain and walnut calf, are one of a kind examples of what unique and talented shoemakers can really do.

Goodyear welted on the familiar and best fitting 173 last, these shoes are sporty and dashing with flannel and corduroy pants, and work very well with jeans.

Church’s Gatcombe

This wingtip boot from Church’s in smooth and pebble grain black calfskin will add a little bit of British flair to your fall and winter look. Church’s shortwing design is formal enough to be dressed up or down with a variety of clothing options.

The pull tab and diamond rubber sole add the no-nonsense durability and ease of use you look for during those not so ideal winter days.
