Carlos Santos is on the rise, so it would appear. Two major retailers in the industry picked them up this year and it seems that a once relatively unknown factory hailing from Portugal will start making major waves from 2016 onward. UK Retailer Herring Shoes who sells mainly UK brands, decided to have a go at another countries footwear and not only that but going rather bold with the offering in both color and design. So they chose to stock Carlos Santos and have a brand ambassador that is doing a great job at promoting them on his social media outlets: Men Need More Style (to which these hero shot photos are courtesy of). I particularly like the one highlighted in this post with blue suede and a contrasting blue toe. That type of styling is right up my alley and am happy to see other brands giving a go at something more bold and daring. Let’s see now how well the English market takes to these!
