We’ve Got [Affordable] Men’s Designer Shoes!

PAO195A colleague recently pointed me to a New York Times blog post about Italian designer shoes. The shoes, from a third-generation company in Montegranaro, retail starting at $1,000 and up — way up, actually. In an economy that’s still working to get back on its feet, it was a little hard for me to understand how anyone could justify spending so much on a pair of shoes (heck, I would question the decision to spend that much money on shoes in a good economy, too). Thankfully, here at Shoefly, we have the same amount of taste and style for a much more affordable price. In fact, Shoefly.com is having a 30% off sale, so the prices are even better than before! If you’re in the market for a pair of quality designer shoes with a whole lot of class, look no further.

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.

Men’s Fashion: Gray is the new Black

Forget the rainbows; give us clouds! This sort of approach may represent the future of men’s fashion.    A recent New York Times article offered a simple messge from Miuccia Prada’s latest show: in men’s fashion, gray is the new black. In her article, “Prada’s Gray Elegy,” Suzy Menkes writes that Ms. Prada “turned the dullness of gray, from dove to anthracite, into a shaded palette.” I have often felt that the economic meltdown has turned the whole world gray; nothing is black and white anymore, it seems.  All the more appropriate, then, that men’s fashion designers would choose to show how beautiful gray can be.

Twelve Days of Shoe Shopping #10: Lords/Roadsters

On the tenth day of Christmas,
My true love gave to me,
Ten lords a-leaping… Well, good for them. Go ahead and leap, boys; it’s good for you. Keeps you warm on those chilly winter days. But even this precocious blogger only handles one “lord,” or as I call him, “dude,” at a time. And rather than give him ten more buddies, I’m giving him a gift to encourage his inner lounge lizard, as in the kind that lounges around the house radiating love for his sweetheart (that’s me).

How to judge a man by his shoes

The shoe-personality connection is well established in popular culture, at least for women. Just consider the number of shoe personality quizzes on the web. Everyone from Seventeen to About.com offers a quiz to match your personality to a shoe. (Apparently, I’m laid back enough to be a flip-flop.) But does the shoe-personality connection also apply to men? If so, can a girl find her soulmate by analyzing his soles?
