It’s a vexing conundrum: you can tell a lot about a man by his shoes; yet there are only a limited number of ways a gentleman can truly express himself via his footwear. Men’s shoes just don’t cut it in the expansive design stakes.
But we’re sensing a mood shift, as evidenced by these snappy striders, fresh for Spring 2010.
Christian Louboutin’s Freddy Flats lace-up shoes are made with patent leather and smattered with a profusion of studs to the toe and heel. They scream: daringly dapper. Not surprisingly Pharrell Williams has already stepped out in a pair.
In keeping with what the bling theme, Michael Kors has released these Capote Flats. Made from tan leather and featuring silver toe jewellery they’re a statement in English eccentricity.
