Blue is going to be the new black, mark my words. Obviously it is not going to replace black in the business setting but I think that we are going to be seeing a lot more of it. I was talking about this to a gentleman the other day about my blue suede oxfords and it was refreshing to meet someone else who actually shared my affinity with the color blue and the thought that it too should be more in circulation within the footwear industry. And it’s funny that I have now seen two very casual models, both boots, this season coming in a nice blue leather. This one here by Meermin is especially interesting as the blue that they use is quite vibrant, not one that would ever be mistaken for black as you might find with a dark navy leather. Now I just hope to see it in the Spring/Summer 2014 in some oxford models which will hopefully equate to seeing them on the feet of men who wear suits!
