8 Fall Footwear Standouts

 

A quality pair of shoes will help you get off on the right foot and make a lasting impression. Think of them as the foundation piece that anchors your outfit. A smartly selected pair will ultimately help you take work and social events in stride.

 

We’ve enlisted the expert advice of our shoe buyer Kevin Eisenberg to roundup the season’s most covetable designs. He’s highlighted 8 extraordinary lace-ups, loafers, and boots worth adding to your arsenal.

 

This standout selection illuminates Eisenberg’s keen eye for sourcing the world’s most luxurious footwear:

1. The Legendary Loafer

Church’s first created the iconic Shanghai loafer for discerning Englishmen living in the Far East. This contemporary rendition, which is constructed exactly as it was in 1929, takes five hundred manual steps to perfect. It has been elegantly broken-in and weathered to fully evoke the vintage spirit of the original.

2. The Cordovan Leather Derby

Harry Rosen collaborated with Italian heritage label Henderson to create these versatile derby shoes. “The cordovan leather will age incredibly well. The thick crepe sole is also a great feature, lending a nice heft to your look” Mr. Eisenberg explains.

3. The Timeless Brogue

No formal wardrobe is complete without a pair of wingtip brogues, and this impeccable Salvatore Ferragamo version is second-to-none. The undisputed design classic has been updated in a streamlined silhouette. Its rich chestnut brown hue harmoniously complements navy and grey tailoring.

4. The Lustrous Leather Trainer

These high-shine Prada trainers are dyed a deep oxblood colour that will coordinate effortlessly with pretty much all of your fall wardrobe essentials” notes Eisenberg. The sophisticated shoes are further set apart by their minimalist sensibility and Spazzalato leather construction.

5. The Mixed-Media Sneaker

These Italian low-tops illuminate why Hogan is a cult favourite amongst sneaker aficionados. Athletic mesh panels are juxtaposed by luxurious calfskin trim for a modern mix of materials. The striking black and white design is set atop a serrated rubber sole to secure a firm footing.

6. The Bison Leather Boot

“Tom Ford’s superlative Chelsea boots look especially rich in full-grain bison leather. They’re sculpted in a sleek profile with sturdy stacked heels for a sense of refinement” says Kevin. The pared-back design works just as well with a suit as it does with seasoned denim.

7. The Shearling-Lined Chukka

This Moncler design is the perfect synthesis of style and practicality. As Kevin points out, “the off-duty chukka is lined in shearling to keep your feet cozy and comfortable as the temperature dips.” The thick rubber soles also provide protection from the rigours of Canadian weather.

8. The Burnished Blue Chelsea

“These Harry Rosen label Chelsea boots are treated in a truly unique dark blue shade. The leather quality and Italian construction is also top rate” asserts Eisenberg. The glossy hand-burnished finish will bring artful distinction to your outfit.
