Alden Unlined Snuff Suede Chukka

Alden’s 1493 chukka is the perfect spring and summer shoe. The bright snuff suede and dynamic natural edging are the perfect addition to the vibrant colors of the season.

The unlined leather allows for one of the softest shoes you will find, as well as a cool, breathable feel, making for an ideal shoe for sockless wear. Oil-soaked flex soles are light and readily flexible, great for the various terrains of the outdoors, wherever you may choose to go this summer.

Wildsmith Bloomsbury Loafers

Wildsmith was founded in 1847 in England by Matthew and Rebecca Wildsmith, and quickly gained a reputation for making fine footwear. Their quality and attention to detail earned them clientele such as John F. Kennedy, Prince Charles, and Cary Grant. The new era of Wildsmith is still made in Northampton in the tradition of Wildsmith past. Just as we’ve introduced other brands in the past, we’re the first to carry Wildsmith here in the US.

The Bloomsbury loafer was derived from a shoe originally designed for King George VI to wear around the house. It’s an iconic and timeless style that’s been copied by many. These come unlined, which makes them very comfortable for bare feet this summer and beyond. They’re the perfect casual shoe, but still dressy enough for a suit.

“You are either in your bed or in your shoes, so it pays to invest in both.” —John Wildsmith

Corthay Gator MTO

Pierre Corthay’s shoes are not for the faint of heart, and these Arca Monkstraps are no exception. The simple design, meticulous execution, and use of exquisite materials sets Corthay in a class of his own. A client of ours had these made up in gator skin, and since they’re so gorgeous and unique, we felt we had to share them with you. Another shoe like this would be hard to find.
