Designer Spotlight: Ryan Rowe

Tipton F08As I was perusing through Shoefly Guy today, I kept finding myself drawn to different pairs of shoes crafted by a single designer: Ryan Rowe. I was a little surprised that I gravitated toward one designer just with the handful of shoes that peaked my interest. So, since Rowe is obviously doing something right by capturing my attention with a number of his styles, I’ve decided he deserves some time in the spotlight this week. According to Rowe, his mission is to present a “concept of modern luxury which is about quality, accessibility, simplicity, attention to detail, getting back to nature and being comfortable.” I think you’ll find the shoes I’ve featured below all reflect this mission in one way or another — from his intentional use of earth tones to his innovative detailing and accent colors — not to mention, they’re just down-right hip shoes.

One of the first shoes I was drawn to was Rowe’s Tipton Canvas pictured below (Its brother shoes, the Tipton F08s are pictured top, right). The canvas outer gives the shoe an old-school feel, and the accent detailing along the laces really give the shoe an edge.

Another shoe I was particularly pleased with was Leighton (below). The colors are subtle, making the shoe versatile, and the perforations give the shoes a distinct personality.


Finally, I love Rowe’s Crofton F08. These are a perfect dress shoe for a man who wants to stand out (courtesy the blue suede detail) but still maintain a classy, sophisticated look.
