The Italian Shoe Collection


With South Africa playing catch up to some parts of the world in aspects such as fashion, most especially, it appears that we have finally caught up with all the stylish gentlemen in the world. Courtesy of one of S.A's largest clothing retailers; Edgars brings us the Italian Shoe Collection. Described as 'encapsulating the perfect combination of Italian craftmanship, premium leathers and distinctive contemporary,' this collection is definitely for the discerning gent, moreover it is a smorgasbord of designs that are guaranteed to wet your sartorial appetites.

I am particularly excited by the light brown double monk strap, a shoe for a distinguished gentleman, that raises the style stakes and causes others to pay attention. The chocolate brown oxford is also a favourite. The driving mocassin with tassels is definitely something new on our shores. For years I have observed how most shoes of this kind were plain with no decorations. Even the driving mocs I've had were of the same plain design. It is therefore with intrigue that I relish the arrival of a different kind of driver. The above image is but a microcosm of the whole collection. Since Edgars is also affordable, you can expect to pay between R999 - R2000, for a pair.
