This Italian brand created in 1929 by Amedeo Testoni always proposes nice shoes like this pair of bown callf leather derbies with a slight cognac sheen. I really like those double stichings finely setting the shoes’ shape off. They are comfortable as well finished as you can see on the pictures below. What I like… Read moreno validationandno comment yet for this article.

It has been a long time now that I am lurking on this pair of Android Homme, actually since their were released in September. What I like the most on these Propulsion 2.5 is the use of a tan color mixed with darker yokes.

I like the old-school style offered by these brogue boots from the english shoemaker “Grenson”. The Goodyear welted sole is 100% leather made, like the whole shoe and the upper has nice wingtip details.

I suprisingly never talked about Illesteva. The brand was founded in 2009 in New York by two guys insipired about design, music, fashion and photography. Actually, their products are quite vintage, but still having an innovative touch, whether is it for the frames shape or their fabric. Those semi-rounded ones are called Lili.
