Start the New Year on the right foot with these unique Italian leather shoe styles

Posted on


Sure it’s a new year, but that doesn’t make you any different. You’re still a stylish man-about-town who would rather stand out than fit in. You march to the beat of your own drum; and when you’re marching, you do so in an amazing pair of handcrafted Italian leather shoes.

If you want to start 2016 with some new styles that are as unique as you are, we have a few suggestions to add to your wardrobe.


The Poitier Doubt Monk Strap in Oxblood

Monk straps are making a big comeback in the fashion world, but a lot of guys are still unfamiliar with this classic style. While these deep-red dress shoes go perfect with your city suits, they really stand out when you work them into your casual wear. Try them with some cuffed khaki chinos and a button down chambray shirt. By pairing them with neutral staples, their unique shape and bold color will really stand out. All you have to do is sit back and wait for the compliments.


The Martin Wholecut in Café Suede

One of the reasons to love the wholecut oxford is its versatility. It is the one style that is always acceptable in formal situations, so you know you can’t go wrong. However, that pretty much goes for the full-grain leather versions. Suede shoes don’t really go with tuxedos. That’s what makes this version of The Martin so special. The juxtaposition of the formal wholecut construction with the textured suede finish create an interesting aesthetic that will get noticed


The Legend High-Top Sneaker in Marrone

Right now it seems like everyone is going for the all-white sneaker choice. Stand out from the pack by going for this expertly crafted pair of full-grain leather high-top sneakers. No one on your block has a pair of kicks like these; the Paul Evans Legend is one-of-a-kind. Try mixing things up a bit by pairing this natural brown pair with outfits you’d normally wear boots with for street style success.

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.
