More bargain hunting over the last couple of months, concentrating on
, I'm going to end with more shoes than a fucking WAG if I don't seek help. We'll start from the top and those slightly obscure European comfort shoes I like, - Finn Comfort London Havanna, I got these German shoes named after the English/Cuban capital from Ohio USA, they are pretty expensive now and becoming harder to find.
Finn Comfort Conventry (third pic), once you put a pair of the self dubbed Finest European Walking Shoes on Earth on your trotters it's understandable to want another pair, as I've just proved.
Jacoform 332 in Moos Nubuck, I've got these already, but not in
as said up there, once you put some of the world's other
on your feet, you go back again and again.
which I got via those very friendly and reliable folks up at
, a nice summer shoe, a bit of a hybrid, but it works for me, based on the original Clarks/Padmore design which is over 30 years old with Hanon's own touch and
vibes in a Limited Edition perforated grey suede with a choice of coloured laces, the original version is also available too, perfect for gliding across talc or just late summer evenings in the beer garden.
Staying with Clarks, and the old reliable next with some Clarks Nature, the timeless geography shoe, I've had a fair few pairs of these over the last decade and always go back to them, couldn't say no to this textured leather pair for twenty quid. Next up Clarks
in slate, a bargain at thirty boff again via Hanon, a slate grey version on a contrast white sole, accompanying the tan version one of my favourite Clarks releases this year.
And finally, Red or Dead 'Mr Briggs' geography teacher shoe to give it it's full name, to be fair a brand I'd not normally look at, but these caught my eye, and kept making me go back for another glance, so I got them, like the sucker I am, they were heavily discounted though, they are a bit like Jacoforms I mention above, and I remember the original founder Wayne Hemingway used to endorse those (Jacoforms) on Oi Polloi's site in the earlier days, so there's a bit of a link, a grey shoe with red laces can look a bit like something your Grandmother might wear to bingo, but there's a fine line, and they're on the right side of it, it's that whole geeky thing I go on about a lot, anti suss we used to call it, it's still there.
