Clogs to Covet.

August 8, 2009
When The Selby‘s photo-tour of Lucas Ossendrijver/Lanvin Homme’s studio in Paris went online I had a bit of a Zoe moment and…died, so to speak. From emerald green velvet satin-bow oxfords (undoubtedly the epitome of lighthearted dandy elegance) to pearl-beaded satin, suede and leather hi-tops the shots went some way in whetting my footwear-appetite.
Thus, in a similar vein to countless other shoe-porn posts, my selection of clogs to covet right now…
7683b grensonoscarsuedeboots
Grenson ‘Oscar’ Blue Suede Boots. Spot on for the offbeat/odd golf-attire-inspired/collegiate looks I’ve been formulating mentally for a while now…

Comme des Garcons Leather/Suede lace-ups. Suede alone (excepting the stellar blue boots above) I’m not an avid fan of, looks too utilitarian/outdoorsy. Paired with brogue-detailed leather, however, and it’s redeemed from Regatta territory.

Lanvin double-whammy, aforementioned oxfords and hi-tops.

Mjolk ‘Hackney Road’. Another leather/suede hybrid, but this time ’round with perforation. Miuccia would be proud.

23986 mrharekerouac
I’ve longed for a pair of plainish, sturdy and really lacquered-looking black boots for a lengthy period of time now and finally, Mr. Hare‘s Kerouac has answered the call. There’s something about literary references and shoes put together that’s all too irresistable.

    I'm genuinely beginning to think I prefer boys' shoes to girls'. Especially from a practicality-point-of-view

    The colour on the Grensons is divine. A statement shoe without the vulgarity.
