Sock sneakers are the coolest – in every sense of the word. These come from Prada’s Linea Rossa sport label and are exceptionally lightweight and easy to slip on and off. Made of rubber, sock mesh and rubberized leather piping, they make no secret of their provenance with the telltale Linea Rossa logo on the tongue and under the heel.
Our customers are enthusiastic about the latest summer option – designer slides that boldly show their brand. All made in Italy, they may look like leather but they’re 100 percent rubber – perfect for the beach. If you want to look like an NBA star, wear them with white sport socks (only white will do – any other colour would just look goofy).
Classic Clean Sneakers
If you need sneakers for your suit wardrobe, look no further. From the top: To Boot New York favours grey suede with brown leather accents on the tongue and heel. Harry Rosen’s own label goes for clean, minimalist lines and rich blue suede. Brunello Cucinelli presents a luxe version in exceptionally soft white leather, with branded brown suede detailing on the tongue and heel, and welt-like stitching around the shoe’s perimeter. TOM FORD places its logo discreetly on the heel of this classic brown sneaker.
Tod's & Harry Rosen
Harry Rosen has partnered with Tod’s in an exclusive collaboration to create lightweight bucks. The stone and brown versions are made with suede, and the navy shoe with soft, textured elk skin. With their sharp leather piping, these are great smart-casual shoes to wear with a jacket and chinos or jeans.All these shoes are constructed with PORON in the midsole for exceptional comfort. Created by NASA, PORON is a revolutionary cushioning material formed with microscopic bubbles. It resists compression even after years of wear.
Barker Harry Rosen
Harry Rosen has carried Barker’s footwear for a couple of years. Now we’ve taken the relationship much further with an exclusive line of shoes, made in England to a superb standard of quality. At the top, two views of a brogued wingtip, one view showing the leather sole’s rubber half-overlay, which provides traction and protection on slippery Canadian streets. On the right, an oxford with a medallion toe and a stylish swooping quarter around the laces. At the bottom, a cap-toe oxford in a dark brown, hard-wearing grained leather. On the left, a cap-toe derby in smooth black calfskin.
Harry Rosen Made in Italy
Made exclusively for Harry Rosen by an artisanal shoemaker in Italy’s Le Marche region, this superbly constructed shoe shows sumptuous hand-burnishing and has unique perforated patterns on the heel, cap and counter. Also available in black.
Flexible Dress Shoes
Men who prefer to go sockless in summertime are driving a new footwear trend: exceptionally comfortable, flexible dress shoes. These are made of tumbled leather so soft that it won’t crease even if you bend the shoes in half. From the top, To Boot New York’s plaintoe dress shoe, Salvatore Ferragamo’s dress loafer with side gancini, and the navy deerskin wingtip from Henderson for Harry Rosen.
Best of the Best
Ultimate expressions of the shoemaker’s art, these three speak for themselves. From the top, Bontoni’s superbly burnished brogue, TOM FORD’s mahogany coloured cap-toe brogue, and Salvatore Ferragamo’s Tramezza cap-toe dress shoe in a brown so dark and lustrous it’s almost black.
