Today's Favorites - Band of Outsiders' Saddle Shoes


Here is yet another bombardment of saddle shoes, but hey, I love them, so you have to grow to love them too! Band of Outsiders' modern version of a saddle shoe is among the coolest that I have ever seen. The top pair is mind-blowing amazing, with the little details that it provides: patina/distressed leather, natural sole and welt stitching, storm welt, white laces, darkened brogueing and last but not least, a great color! It does not get much better than that pair and even the others are terribly cool. I truly love seeing all of the ways a saddle shoe can be done. While it's design limits it from being too terribly unique from one another, it's always a pleasure to see a company's unique twist of their version. As the saddle is my favorite design of all time, you can bet that when I start my line there will be no shortage of saddle models, season after season, as I already have plenty of designs in store!

  3. I have wanted the black and white pair for so long. I cant find them anywhere. Again, I think they may be out of my price point at this time.

  5. Roel - I would order them online here: http://www.markowski-chausseur.fr/fiche-produit.php?prod=314&srub=&titre=

    If you don't like that option, then I am not sure. I have not seen any here in England as far as RTW shoes go. You might have to order them online, it seems that a lot of American companies are supplying them for Spring/Summer 2011. Thanks for the comment, glad that you enjoy the blog!

  8. Roel - Go to this site:

    http://www.markowski-chausseur.fr/

    Click on Chaussures Homme

    Then at the bottom of that, click on Septieme Largeur and when it takes you to another page, you will see a pair of brown leather saddle shoes in the second row, middle picture.

  9. Hello Justin!

    Thanks again for replying.
    However I had to be more specific. I ment the specific ones above this blog (brown broque leather, with white/ leather soles). The ones you showed me are, well different:-).

    Thanks from Holland and if you ever visit Amsterdam: I can show you some shops selling beautifull shoes.
