Twenty Two – San Francisco: Review


Following my first shoe review of the Diesel Alamaty I caught a lot of grief from folks around the office, proclaiming that I have too many pairs of casual, tennis-like shoes. It became apparent to me that a leather shoe isn’t necessarily a dressy shoe. That’s what led me to the San Francisco.

Twenty Two, a designer shoe brand known for making casually sophisticated leather boots and shoes for men, really hit the mark with their San Francisco shoe. Like the Golden Gate city, the San Francisco shoe is sophisticated, comfortable, trendy and stylish. At first glance the shoe looks like nothing more than a simple, post-retro, leather loafer; but once on your feet the story changes paths.

Ever since becoming a fashion savvy male,  I’ve wanted a pair of men’s leather boots. I am not talking about cowboy boots, but rather the trendier boots you’d expect to see the lead singer of a rock band wearing. The only problem is that I can’t stand the thought of having anything other than a soft pair of socks covering my ankles. The San Francisco is a shoe that looks like a boot, without the ankle constraints. Brilliant. Onto my guitar lessons.

When speaking of comfort, I can’t imagine a pair of shoes feeling much better on my feet than the Twenty Twos. After only two days of wear, the shoe had formed to my foot with none of the hot spots typical of a new pair of shoes.  Being that I live and work in the city I do a lot of walking and the San Franciscos truly turn out to be a walker’s shoe. Or better yet, a walker’s shoeboot.

The San Francisco’s boot-like sole, rugged Italian leather and slip-on functionality makes it my current favorite. I’m not sure what I will be reviewing next time, but I imagine I’ll receive some flack for the abundance of brown shoes in my collection.
