J Shoes Calypso Navy Leather Brogue
J Shoes Motto: “We are an independent brand and we aim to make great footwear that reflects these characteristics in our consumers.”
Bringing us some major funk from the English Midlands, J Shoes offers an urban take on the classic brogue shoe. This shockingly blue gem falls within the traditional colour palette for spring, whilst fashionistos should also take note; blue is THE trend colour to look out for in the spring/summer 2012 season.
J Shoes have made a real statement of intent with this wild number. Lined with a tan fabric interior and complete with matching tan laces, it is a must-have for any gentleman that subscribes to the urban formal wear bible. The main body of the shoe is constructed from natural leathers from around the world, meaning they will only get better with age and wear.
By structuring this hand-stitched leather shoe with an unconventional espadrille-type sole, J Shoes gives a classic footwear style a truly contemporary spin. The sole is constructed from rubber, which provides durability for those long summer days and nights. Statement footwear like this not only gets you noticed, but shows you have a unique and individual style that can transition easily from spring into summer.
Pair these cobalt blue shoes with a well-tailored suit and you are set for a night of unbridled adventure. If you want to casual down, then try a pair of slim chinos (with a couple of turn ups) or a pair tailored shorts for that chic Riviera inspired look. Whatever you pair these brogues with, just make sure your pants do not cover up the shoe – it is designed to be seen!
Imagine yourself splashing around in spring puddles with this devil-may-care piece and your shoe problems will all suddenly melt away.
These shoes are available for purchase in March over at J Shoes.
