ahead to fall here because the k* Olef bootie can be a summer staple too. Pair these beauties with jean shorts, a dress or skirt and you’re good to go. These are designed by our friend Keiko who always does it right.

Shoes

paper accessories called SIWA (pronounced shiwa) really caught my attention. The collection includes totes, shoes, hats and more that are all water-resistant, don’t rip and are very strong. They are designed by Naoto Fukasawa and developed by the Onao paper company. If you are curious to see more they can all be found here.

No. 6 Huarache Heel

It’s no secret..

No. 6 Huarache Heels

No. 6 Huarache Heels

that we both love the No. 6 clog boots, but then again who doesn’t? Now I’m looking forward to the warm weather and these Huarache Heels. I’m crushing on the marine color because it can pretty much be a companion to anything in your closet, throughout the four seasons. All of the No. 6 clogs are super comfortable, but the wedge style just takes it to a new level. An investment you won’t regret.

Church’s Shanghai Shoes

You can’t go wrong..

Church's Shanghai Shoes

Church's Shanghai Shoes

with Church’s Shanghai Shoes. They are sure to get you noticed, and were named as part of Nick Wooster’s 10 essentials list for GQ Magazine. Let’s be real, these aren’t exactly budget friendly, and you’d have to save (and spend) a lot of coin to own these; but it’s hard to dispute that they are nice to look at. This shoe has a weathered look, almost like they were passed down from your great-grandpa who had impeccable style. Thomas Church and his three sons founded Church’s English shoes in 1873, and still to this day it takes about 8 weeks to make each pair because of the detailed production process. Another one added to the wish list.

Run of the Mill

Freshly launched..

today actually; the Run of the Mill fall/winter 2011 collection is tight but very smart. The pieces are described by my husband as “ridiculously awesome,” and although I am no authority on menswear, I agree! The shoes are made in Italy, the shirts in the U.S.A., the fabrics are carefully sourced, and the styles are thoughtfully cut. They’re taking pre-orders for one month only, so if anything peaks your interest, get on it. What strikes me the most is that three influential bloggers collaborated to turn out the Run of the Mill shop, it’s inspiring to say the least.

Leopard Desert Boot

A while back..

Anniel Leopard Desert Boot, $175.00

Anniel Leopard Desert Boot, $175.00

I shared my newfound love of Anniel Sport Shoes. It was a bit premature seeing as I didn’t actually own any, but since my chance encounter last spring, they’d been on my radar.  So when I got an email from Bird last week and saw these bad boys, my immediate reaction was to reach for my credit card. Anniel Sport was founded in 1976 for ballerinas, their shoes now have a following on the streets of Japan and are quickly making their way here. Throughout the years, the brand has stayed true to what they’re about, making  quality shoes characteristic of a ballet slipper. The desert boot is well constructed with a rubber sole, laces-up and the leopard print.. well, that detail just speaks for itself.

Keller Fall/Winter 2011

I am definitely not ready..

Keller Fall/Winter 2011

Keller Fall/Winter 2011

for anything fall/winter, EXCEPT the collection by Keller. We’ve mentioned the brand on here before and I’ll say it again, there’s nothing more comfortable than a pair of Keller shoes. The designer, Kelly Clark, has style you’d want to steal, which is quite obvious from the easy to wear pieces. All of the clothing and shoes are American made, and as someone who loves to layer, seeing this fresh collection is really exciting.

Clarks Originals x Concepts Ashcott

Another collaboration..

Clarks Originals x Concepts Ashcott, $120

Clarks Originals x Concepts Ashcott, $120

worth mentioning. We’ve talked about when Saturdays teamed up with Porter and the raincoat from ELKA and Norse Projects. Here’s another one.  Boston based lifestyle shop, Concepts teamed up with Clarks Originals to make an updated version to one of their classics, the Ashcott. The silhouette’s similar, but these are made from durable canvas,vegetable tan leather accents and have the Concepts branding on the heel tab and tougue.  I’m not usually a fan of labels, but these are a good addition. Limited quantities will be available starting this Saturday (the 11th) in black, olive and red. Mark your calendars because they are pretty much guarenteed to sell out fast.

Yuketen Tobacco Country Ranger

With..

Yuketen Tobacco Country Ranger, $395

Yuketen Tobacco Country Ranger, $395

all of the good shoes out there for men, I don’t understand why I see so many bad ones out there. Seriously. It’s not that hard, or it shouldn’t be with great options like Blucher, Chukka Del Barco and these Yuketen Tobacco Country Ranger I came across at Inventory. They are pretty much a classic, great for the spring/summer weather. Hand sewn, made in the good old USA and way better than those silly square-toe leather things that should just be retired.
