Shoes Of The Week
It’s always interesting to see what another animal’s hide would look like on a pair of shoes. Never seen or even heard of being used before, this pair here, bespoke by George Cleverley, offers the skin of a mountain ram. It looks surprisingly similar to elephant hide (which I had the opportunity to handle while with Stefano Bemer, shoes here), yet only less coarse. It clearly makes the shoes more casual but the contrasting effect that is produced when pairing the mountain ram hide with a calfskin creates quite a pleasing look, at least in my mind. Given it’s casual qualities I would think that this pair would look quite sharp with a nice pair of jeans, but at the same time look nice also when paired with a more casual suit. While these shoes no doubt cost a pretty penny, the fact that they are so elegant and can be worn with the majority of pieces in your wardrobe, is priceless!!
