Some of my favorite shoes: Trickers museum calf

Trickers “Bourton” country brogue in burgundy museum calf.  Awesome color leather and I wish Trickers made more shoes in this leather. 

Some of my favorite shoes: Regal V-tip

Made in japan. Dark red full grain leather in V-Tip derby style. Dainite sole. 

Some of my favorite shoes: Florsheim x Duckie Brown

Cherry red cordovan leather. Styled in classic Florsheim “Imperial” Longwing style. This collaboration only existed for a season or two in 2010 but they made some excellent shoes during that time. 

Some of my favorite shoes: Trickers

Trickers medallion toe derby laceup.  Color is “lollipop” which is a fantastic shade of dark red/burgundy.  Dainite sole.   A personal fave. 

Smooths putting in the boot.

Not sure when this photo was taken, but it’s one I’d never seen before. Judging by the style, most definitely early 70s, probably around 1972-3. A couple Smooths putting the boot into someone. 

Some of my favorite shoes: Alden

The classic #8 cordovan Longwing brogue. Double leather sole, rich burgundy cordovan leather. This pair is from 2006 and still going strong.

Some of my favorite shoes #1

Trickers “Longwing” brogue boot in burgundy calf. I’d never seen brogue boots in a Longwing style until these (got them about 6 years ago). Not have I seen any others since. Dainite sole.
