STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: The New Leather Shoe

Style Advice of the Week

Leather is one of those things that gets better with age. Having studied abroad in Florence, which is known for its leather market and the exact reason I came home broke, I am no stranger to the smell and feel of good leather.

While the smell may be overpowering, there’s nothing better than a good pair of leather shoes. Leather shoes have been around since the creation of the shoe. They started out as sandals and have continued to change in shape and color with the times.

Having gone to private school my whole life, I’m no stranger to the penny loafer, and having a dad who wears a suit and tie to work everyday, I’ve seen my fair share of dress shoes. However, I have yet to see a leather sneaker like these this Fashionisto is wearing. His footwear is a great example of a timeless trend combined with a current one.

The emergence of sneakers may not be something new to any Fashionisto, but to me I’ve seen a big change in the way I have seen guys dressing up their sneakers. This Fashionisto created a stylish, yet simple look, by pairing his shoes with a slick pair of khaki pants.

To get this Fashionisto’s exact look, opt for his Vans 106 Hi Tops or try these Vans Sk8-Hi versions, which are a little more muted and versatile.
