I am not going to lie, I have never really been a fan of white soles, not on smart shoes at least. That was until Septieme Largeur started doing them. And while I can’t say that I own a pair, I can admit that when I look at this I am attracted to it as for me it presents the ideal blend of a smart casual shoe. I find myself more and more wearing leather soled shoes on the weekends when I feel like I should be taking it easy and wearing trainers. Guess I am getting more snobbish as I get older! So something like this, allows me to have a nice cushy, casual and comforting sole, but then have a smart upper. And let’s not forget to mention the beauty of that one piece of leather on a 8 eyelet mid-boot. Very slick!
