Grant Stone takes its excellently classic penny loafer silhouette and turns it on its head by pairing it with some moody, stormy kudu from C.F. Stead. Made on the Alexander last, with butyl leather outsoles that’ll make it a great choice for wearing year-round.
Grant Stone’s excellent not-quite-workboot, not-exactly-dress-moc Brass Boot gets the rugged treatment with this earth Waxy Commander from C.F. Stead. These are on the Floyd last with Grant Stone’s own commando soles.
A pleasingly simple as great shoes get, these PTBs deploy Hot Alden Leather of the Moment Arabica Lux from Horween (also looks pretty good on these I have to say!) mated to a thin oiled leather sole. Love ’em.
BLACKOUT…almost. This just splendid murdered-out black shell Indy on a black neocork sole with black eyelets flashes just a tiiiiiny hint of antique edge stain, a very rare occurrence on black shell Alden boots.
We can always count on Unmarked to put a fun twist on a time-tested style, and these Kami loafers are no different. The casual fellas are bottomed with some off-white veg-tanned bullhide. Perfect for running with the bulls (not actually).
We’ve got a couple unique Tricker’s makeups at The Bureau to share with you this week. First, the Combat Boot, a solid-looking service boot made in Horween’s classic Color 8 CXL with a 360 storm welt and Dainite soles. Made on the 4497k last.
There’s also these chonky tramping shoes made with Horween’s heavy horsehide, also built on the 4497k last, with a 360 storm welt and Vibram 2060 wedge soles.
Nicks has continued expanding its CXL stable by now offering Color 8 as an option on all heritage-style MTO makeups. From Horween, Color 8 tends to mean shell cordovan, but honestly it’s maybe the most underrated CXL color of them all.
All the green boot lovers should check out Truman this week. First, they’ve got a new pair in this Caper Green colorway of their beloved C.F. Stead Waxy Mohawk leather. These are made with an unstructured toe on the 79 last with Dainite soles.
And just when you thought things couldn’t get any greener, there are also these Trumans made with C.F. Stead Forest Shadow Saddle leather. Also made on the 79 last, these boots have a structured toe, and feature Ridgeway soles.
