Lace and Leather

A clear standout for me at the latest Capsule menswear trade shows were these washed laser-cut lace-patterned lace-ups from Florsheim by Duckie Brown. These shoes have gone through every treatment you could possibly think of doing to a piece of leather, and yet you could still see a sense of restraint—in the absence of seams, the dull finish, the almost-black color. They may very well be my statement shoes for next year.

They seem to be a little darker than the more typically preppy-dandy shoes we’ve seen from this label in the past, but I think they’re a very well-done, graceful progression.

Two points of concern, however: (1) will the narrower strips of leather be snapping as shown? and (2) how much, pray tell, are these going to cost me?
