Whilst researching the Don’t Fight The Blues Part I and Part II I stumbled upon a range of absolutely amazing men’s shoes, the kind of beautifully detailed and lovingly made shoes that makes me scorn all men who persist with crap shoes (there’s no excuse!), whilst at the same time making me wish for man-size feet so I can wear them. I dug a little further and was so excited to discover they are the work of my good friend Michael Hockey. I always knew he was a supremely talented fellow (and funny as hell I’ll have you know) but I honestly was taken aback with the level of detail and craftsmanship of his range, in particular these lace up boots from his capsule range for international non-profit organisation amFAR (The Foundation for Aids Research). Good cause and good style! Winning.
Apart from the great use of textures, I love the shape of the toe and even the shoelaces are cool. And those soles! If blue is not your thing, these beauties also come in chocolate brown. Heaven.
I thought these boots deserved a closer look! Hope you like.
