In a world where velcro and slip-ons take the lead, this shoe holds its own with its quiet, confident presence. The rounded toe with lacing upper gives this leather shoe a touch of English School Boy with a Yankee edge. The high top is perfectly padded with a smooth inner liner. The quality leather is pliable, breaking in easily and lending more character over time. Versatile, as it smartens up jeans and shorts, yet wears well for higher occasions.
|Lending more character as it breaks in.|
Dad's words: "That's a good looking shoe.
"Passer-by words: "That shoe looks like it will last forever and get passed on to the next child and the next."
