Sole Men


Ever since the Prada creeper brogue clomped its way down the runway way back in Spring ’11, the heavy-soled shoe has been the go-to for menswear editors and savvy shoppers. In Milan, the layered brogue-espadrille (brogue-adrille?) was still one of the shoes of choice among the showgoing class, and on the runways, lace-ups continued strong. At Burberry, Christopher Bailey showed crafty, thick-soled espadrilles, some with kiltie details. At her golf-inspired show, Mrs. Prada introduced kiltie shoes, too, in layers of ultra-bright color and gum soles. Italo Zucchelli of Calvin Klein did a typically futurist take on the style, with clear-plastic soled lace-ups, and today at Gucci, even the house that horsebit built was showing oxfords. So much for thinking light next summer. See you next fall, loafer?

    I am really a big fan of your blog. I often incorporate the ideas I learn on STYLE in my own wardrobe. There are a ton of Miami lawyers so I really hope that how I dress expresses my own style.
