Get hired with the right interview shoes

Posted on


You worked on your CV for hours and even had a professional go over it. You’ve practiced the possible questions asked with your mentor and researched so thoroughly know more about the company than half the existing employees. You’ve got the outfit picked out… but what pair of leather shoes will leave the best impression on your potential employer? We have a few ideas.


The Brando Semi-Brogue Oxford in Café Suede

If you’re interviewing at a young start up company, they may have told you that the interview dress code is office casual. Let’s be clear: that does not mean come in jeans and sneakers. Instead, impress them with a sharp pair of neutral chinos and these stunning suede oxfords. While the darkness of the café color may lean towards formal, the softness of the suede and the fun brogue detail will tell your future boss that you know how to balance work and play.


The Dean Chelsea Boot in Marrone

If your interview style is to go in confident and bold, take it all the way with the most boss boots in town. Not only is the boot a smarter choice for the winter months ahead, the choice of wearing a boot instead of an oxford to an interview will tell the interviewers that you’re not afraid to take the lead and march to the beat of your own drum. While these work great with the office casual look start up companies often suggest, you can also style the Chelsea with a suit without sacrificing style.


The Olivier Single Monk Strap in Nero

If you’re interviewing at a high-powered boutique broker firm where your style is as important as your performance, blow them away with the Olivier Single Monk Strap. It’s not a common style—yet. Don’t be surprised if someone asks where they’re from and you see them on a few feet on your first day. With stunning, hand painted Italian calfskin leather and bold hardware and cap-toe detail; you’re wearing a pair of shoes that transcends trendy.


The Martin Wholecut in Oxblood

If you’re vying for a position at a conservative company, you cannot go wrong with the Martin Wholecut Oxford. Not only is the wholecut the perfect formal shoe, the oxblood color seamlessly matches most suit colors without being as casual as basic brown.

Like most other Italian brands (Gucci, Prada, Tod's), our shoes run a full size larger than US dress shoe brands.

Extra room in your toes is by design. Think sleek and sexy.


Resist the urge to press down on your toes to assess the fit. There's always going to be extra room because of the shape of our shoe lasts.

You have the perfect fit when:


There is enough room across the widest part of your foot and your heel sits comfortably in the shoe. If you can confidently strut your stuff in the shoes, you're good to go.

And don't worry about minor heel slippage or extra room in the your toes!

Minor heel slippage is normal in a new pair of leather-soled shoes.


After you break in your new shoes, the heel slippage will stop. Our Italian calfskin leather needs a chance to conform to your foot. If it doesn't, email us and we'll make it right.
