Ruby Red Cordovan by Cleverley

Ruby Red Cordovan by Cleverley

I saw these Cleverley’s the other day and while I am not crazy about lazy man elastic stuff on my shoes, I couldn’t help but fall in love with the color of them. Not only the color, but I also love the name of it, ‘Ruby Red.’ I would mind having a nice pair of oxfords in this leather, particularly one that maybe had a bit of red or burgundy suede on the top bit, like a balmoral. And while most people might be afraid of a color so bold, what people forget is that others appreciate seeing it on your foot, even if they would never have enough courage to wear it themselves!

  1. can you actually repair the elastic part once it gets worn out? i also dislike elastics because they somehow negate the idea of making shoes last longer. i can imagine cobblers excellently replacing worn out soles but resewing worn out elastics – not so sure.

  2. I’m a big fan of ruby shell as well. Carmina has a pair of ruby shell brogues in their e-boutique.

    Justin, quick question. What’s your personal belt selection like, if you don’t mind my asking? I know you have a wide selection of shoes in great colors and am wondering how you go about pairing a belt.

    If you were buying ruby shell shoes, for example, would you feel that you should pick up a belt to match? I know there’s some reasonable leeway here — I wouldn’t be aghast at pairing these shoes with a burgundy or oxblood belt I already own, for example. But knowing myself it wouldn’t be long before I was hunting down a ruby shell belt. Just wondering how you approach the situation!
