Shoes Of The Week - Saint Crispins


When I first saw this pair in one single color (posted here) I fell in love with them. But when I saw this pair, by Saint Crispins, in a multiple leather type two-tone, I was absolutely blown away. Time and time again, they make the exact thing that I feel needs to be more present in the shoe industry and it makes me smile to know that other makers/designers appear to be thinking the same thing. So, it comes as no surprise that this company continues to grow, having their shoes being carried at more and more stores around the world, all while they carry a price tag of around $2000. This particular shoe just might be one of my favorite models in circulation at the moment. Not only does it remind of what they used to wear back in the early 20th century, but represents shoes as a piece of art, because looking at this, I would not know whether to wear it or place it on my mantelpiece. Just joking...I would definitely rock them!

  2. Beautiful shoes indeed! You can put them on your mantelpiece when you're not wearing them, perhaps?

  3. Happy to see you like them, as this model is my first pair, though not in the two-colour variety. And I think I have a different last. It looks as though this is the classic last, whereas mine is on the Riva last, that I find just a little bit more edgy for this :-) Cheers, Reto

  4. PSS - I think you misread my post. I never said these were new, I said that it was an old style, one that makers used to make back in the early 20th century....

    Paul - Indeed! If only I could afford them....

    Reto - Good to know that we share similar taste!
