We all know how obsessed I am with two toned shoes, but I have never ever been a fan of tri-color shoes, or tri-color anything for that matter (just ties). For me (in shoes) one color is boring, 2 is perfect and 3 is just too much. BUT, when I saw these beauties, by Saint Crispins, I could not help but admire and appreciate the colors/textures involved. And I think the thing that really hooked me in, was the patina like swirly effect going on in the mid-piece. It’s almost as if it helped the transition between the darker shade below and the lighter shade above. Had it not be there and it would have just have flat, I don’t think that I would have liked it as much. I definitely think that after seeing these, I believe the key to doing a tri-color shoe/boot is maintaining complementary colors. Anything contrasting and it just becomes too much when 3 colors are involved….. These are a true beauty though and are making me want to give it a go!
Love the neighborhood names from my hometown!

That St. Crispins boot, wow!! Granted it blends elements of two pairs of shoes I plan to have MTO so that proclivity tilts me to like them. But this pair is way better than either of my designs.
it is lovely indeed! Will look forward to seeing your MTO
