Gorgeous. I’d marry a man with those kinds of shoes…

My kind of shoes!!!!!!!!!!!
Always spend the biggest budget of your garderobe on your shoes or save up for the best shoes you are able to afford.
After all our feet have to carry us around all day…,so be good to them!
And guys remember,ladies love beautiful shoes!It’s one of the first things they notice!And keep them shining!
Love the post Sart!

Makes me wish I was a boy. I love this store!

Beautitful …..handcrafted shoes……reminds of the time i saw a selection of 6 KITON shoes…and every shoe felt like one of a kind when you picked it up…and when I tried one one it felt a little tight…just enough to take your “footprint” as you broke them in …which felt as though the leather would not take too long to do……can’t wait to own amy first pair of these kind of shoes ……..for me it is both a financial and taking care of the shoes commitment

church’s? red headed step child of that group.
that corthay two eyelet is the dreamiest black shoe ever.

I got lucky at Century 21 and got a pair of Church’s deeply discounted at $100. I knew I was getting a superior shoe, and they have worn beautifully. It is true that good shoes age better, so save up and buy the best you can afford!!!

It will be a lovely day when American men realize that all those enormous soles on their shoes are hideous and tacky. And that square toe (not squared-off, but this-shoe-is-a-box-for-my-foot type? Blech.
This footwear is beautiful, beautiful.
Gentlemen of NYC, invest in a few pairs. Leave your old ones to be discarded at the shop.

I’m not a boy, and I’d still wear ‘em.

The second photo made me drool a little bit.

The comment on the unattractiveness of large soles is odd, considering that there is a tradition of double soles in all three countries represented (England, France, Italy). The Weston Chasse and Demi Chasse are beautiful, big ass shoes, as is the Lobb William.
Completely agree on square toes, however.

My heart stopped when i saw the first shoe. That is one fine piece of footwear, when I am studying at parsons in the fall I will definitely go to that store!
May 12, 2008 at 9:47 pm
Second photo, black shoe– Wow! So stylish and any guy would look amazing with that type of shoe!
If there were affordable versions, I’d definitely tell my friends to buy those!

Nice to hear your insight and excitement! Great to hear that you have found your perfect store.
Sart – Which pair have you already purchased, or will you be purchasing??

2nd shoe is a Corthay Arca.. beautiful shoe. *keeps saving*
May 13, 2008 at 6:27 am
i fell in love with the dark mustard wing tip!
May 13, 2008 at 11:33 am
the kiton shoes were explained to me as to how they are made and I was most intrigued by the fact that a special type of leather is buried in a certain kind of soil for two years ….then the material is used in the construction of the shoes ….I LOVE THAT….only because when felt the leather on these shoes it had a remarkable quality that I could instantly tell was something very special…. THX SAR!

Fantastic shoes.More men with such artwork on their feet!
May 13, 2008 at 4:36 pm

and for those interested, i can add Barker brand as a recommendation of quality “schumacher”!!. hand made and satisfying quality. (not to be confused with Barker Black, haven’t tried those). they come around 200-250GBP in UK.

I need some of those….
May 19, 2008 at 4:50 am
Nice Corthay Arca (blue ones)
May 19, 2008 at 10:17 am
I would add John Lobb and Bontoni as quality shoemakers.

The black lace-ups with the white trimmings.

So nice to see real; leather instead of rubberized softy nonsense. Real men wear shined, classy shoes and they shine!!

Finally a shoe emporium with great designers and depth. For a city like New York, only the upscale department stores had a selection. I do hope they last. An addition of Santoni would be nice to see.
