Floris about this shoe:“Elegant shoes, right?! I’ve developed a new theory on elegance. If we are completely honest, elegance doesn’t have much to do with the way one dresses but with the way you carry oneself. I gave this some more thought the other day while I was fiddling around with Einstein’s theory of relativity and all of a sudden it hit me: E = MC2 stands for Elegance = Manners x Charisma2. There you go…. But back to the shoes! The manufacturing of material combinations as we have done for these shoes requires precision work. It is kind of like the anchovies on a pizza napolitana: Striking the right balance is soooo important. Of all the work that we are doing to launch a new collection within half a year, this is usually the last step we undertake. By then, we have delved so deeply into new leather types and colours that we can figure out the best combinations with our eyes closed. We’ve tried to keep the number of variations compact but in the end, we didn’t really succeed. Therefore: Choose wisely! In the meantime, I’ll ponder some more about elegance… and will get back to you on this!”
This lace shoe is made of different types of leather. The wing tip cap and sides of the shoe are made of dark brown calf’s leather, while the lace flap has a leather lizard print and the heel cap is finished with dark blue leather that has a snake relief pattern. Around the lace flap and heel, the derby has some decorative brogue perforations. The round laces are made of black waxed cotton. The dark red rubber sole has an all-over print in the form of small shoes and the outsole’s red colours is also visible along the sides of the shoe. The tread of the heel is partly leather and partly slip-resistant rubber. Lining and footbed are both made of brown calf’s leather. This elegant dress shoe also works perfectly with more casual outfits.
Dark brown leather belt (article number 75144/03).
There is a matching belt available for this shoe. The belt is in the same colour and made from the same material as the shoes. Details such as grain, texture and finishing methods are identical to those of the shoe. The belt can be manually adjusted to the desired size.
