Today we received a re-stock of Norman Vilalta’s brown derby and oxford. As part of his Savile Row Meets Rock ’n’ Roll Collection, these shoes combine a classic pattern with rugged Gumlite soles in a modern deconstruction of the dress shoe. Made in patinated pebble grain calfskin, they’re undeniably unique but eminently wearable in a variety of situations. Any shoe from Norman Vilalta is a work of art, and these belong in your personal collection.
If you wear suits regularly, the captoe balmoral is a standby, the kind of shoe that is classic with any relatively formal suit. Wear it as a subtle compliment to a serious wardrobe.
If you don’t wear suits on a regular basis, the captoe balmoral is just the shoe for special occasions. With care, you could wear these to every special occasion and important meeting that you attend for the rest of your life. Either way, you’ll be well dressed.
