Collaboration between old masters and young green horns is not new. It is becoming pretty common and dare-I-say trendy to be able to say that your clothing items are actually made with some care rather than in China.
Duckie Brown and Florsheim have teamed up to make several takes on classic styles, such as the Saddle Shoes (pictured above) with that oh-so-youthful “twist.”
The Saddle Shoe, I warn you, will be the go-to shoe for this Spring, and such as Desert Boots have domineered the meetings of this magazine and the streets of urban areas around the world, so will the saddle shoe, to my deepest regret, become “trendy.” It will be thanks to people like Duckie Brown who will lead this latest sartorial charge. For shame.
