Since I was all about shoe care yesterday I thought I’d feature the remarkable 145 year old brand, Grenson. They make some of the best Dandi shoes around.
I believe that shoes make the Dandi. Certainly there are times when people never even get to see your shoes (those are sad times), perhaps in a dark restaurant or maybe you are a puppeteer…but usually there is the outfit and then there are the shoes and they can really make or break what someone believes about your style.
Bad shoe choices kill a look. I have seen the well meaning Dandy wear a great suit only to completely kill it with cheap, comfortable shoes. I’m not saying that shoes have to be painful to look good, but there is a time and place for everything and there are no well dressed Dandi’s on any best dressed list wearing rubber sole Stride Rite shoes, I‘m just saying…
