Mens Summer 2017 New Arrivals

March is an odd inbetweeny time when it comes to footwear. It’s still a bit chilly (I’m holding out for the day to come soon when I don’t have to wear a coat) but the sun is slowly making an appearance. Shop rails are full of brighter colour palettes and those camel chinos are calling. Shoes however, must not be forgotten at this point. Heavy black footwear doesn’t sit right with a spring or summer wardrobe, and why wait for espadrille weather when there is so much choice? Lighter options from the Men’s New Collection are filling the shelves here at Golden Boot.

Our very own Golden Boot Mulgrave is available in blue and dark red. The upper is a supple suede with a punched vamp, the lining is leather and the sole is a sturdy rubber. They’re comfortable, light, and will add just a touch of colour to an everyday outfit.

Golden Boot Reeve is another suede option. This perfect penny loafer will take you from the office to post-work dinner. They come in blue and black (with surprisingly colourful linings) and work well with chinos in spring or shorts in the summer.

Kings of comfort yet again are Pikolinos with their espadrille-style shoe Linares Available in blue or tan, this is ideal for all those family BBQs and beach walks coming up.

Planning a holiday? Grab a pair of Pikolinos. Talking of holidays, Sebago haven’t let us down on the deck shoe front. The quintessentially preppy design is an absolute sell out every summer, and you don’t even have to own your own boat to wear a pair.

If you’re on the go all weekend, then take a look at Nebula A from Geox. The breathable sole unit has been designed specifically with your super active feet in mind.

They come in charcoal or navy suede and have flexible elastic straps across the front, making them comfortable and practical.

For more formal occasions check out Tucano from Anatomic Gel. They come in various colours and are well-known and loved for their comfort and practicality. Little details like the contrasted stitching and laces make them a great addition to a smart spring outfit, and being a leather brogue, they’re transferable from season to season.

If you’re heading out out, and really want to make a statement, then who else do we talk about other than Jeffery West? Harbour has just landed in the store – a beautiful Derby wingtip as part of their Goodyear Welted collection.

They feature a woven leather vamp and tongue, a red leather insole, embossed leather sole and those signature diamond punches on the edges and toe box. If you’re feeling extra showy then go bold with the aptly named Flash.

Put a spring in your step

The time has come to shake off the winter blues and pack the boots in the cupboard for the new season. Those bright and beautiful skies are here, and the arrival of our spring and summer collections is giving us lots to shout about. Okay, so it’s not quite sandal weather yet, but what about something a little lighter?

For work, take a look at the loafers. If you’re feeling super smart then head for our very own Golden Boot 3973 Turville. They have a beautiful, traditional feel, and are available in tan, navy or a creamy patent.

Gabor offer Isabelle 64.2211, a more casual option in a dusty pink suede, with a brilliantly white sole unit.

If you’re after something that’s easy to wear and a little bit of fun, then you’ll adore 3615 Lozoya from Wonders. They’ve got a chunky white sole outlined with jute, sweet tassels on the front, a little bit of broguing and plenty of glitter.

For something a little more eye-catching, we have Majestic from Ash. Its silver leather upper brandishes bright metallic stars, and will certainly draw some attention.

Ash Majestic £175.00

Ash Majestic
£175.00

New in from Tamaris is the perfect slip-on sneaker – 24609 Aster, available in black and ivory. The elegantly shaped front is covered in diamontes, so you can sparkle your way through the week.

If you’re feeling bold then 6107 Carrion from Wonders are ideal. You can’t miss them…wear them with a sweet pencil dress in high summer – they’re a great alternative to heels for a wedding, with their delicately scalloped topline.

Hispanitas 74822 Macadam are beautiful with light blue jeans,

Hispanitas 74822 Macadam-V7 £89.99

Hispanitas 74822 Macadam-V7
£89.99

and Epworth 62.421 from Gabor offer another brightly coloured alternative, with a little wedge heel.

Gabor Epworth 62.641 £79.99

Gabor Epworth 62.641
£79.99

 

We’re getting some beautiful heels in for the summer. If you’re starting to think about wedding outfits then now is the time to start browsing shoes and bags. Year after year  Peter Kaiser offer their well-loved classic shapes, and this season is no different. 75310 Dalia from Hispanitas is an ideal loafer-heel go between. The chunky silver chain across the front sits perfectly with the colour matched block heel. Dalia is available in black suede and patent combi, or a simple nude.

Stylish Winter Boots

Be prepared for those blustery November days with a solid pair of boots. This season’s colour palettes and detail trends broaden across both the men and women’s department, with deep reds, burgundy, and warm shades of brown and exquisite attention to detail.

Although traditionally used in men’s footwear, women don’t have to miss out on those classic last shapes and brogue detailing anymore. Wonders have given us a statement ankle boot in black and cherry red, with a chunky sole and an easy-to-slip-on zip on the inside.

The colour combinations in the Barker womens collection are more than eye-catching. This blue and red pair have been disappearing off shelves since the moment they arrived, and with a decent suede brush you can keep these looking good as new.

 Pikolinos have been experimenting with their mens collection using Vibram’s recycled Ecostep sole unit, it’s hard wearing with a soft leather upper and inside zip – a great option for everyday wear as its super comfy.

Loake has offered a stocky tan leather ankle boot, with wonderful brogue detailing and that ever-classic Goodyear Welted sole. These guys will last a lifetime, and will only look and feel better with age. Pictured here, Christian wears them loosely laced with trousers tucked behind the tongue for a more casual feel.

Red Wing is another chunky member of the autumn collection. Handmade in Minnesota, USA, these boots are born out of workwear and are super tough.  They’ve gone for a deep red wine shade upper, black laces and statement white exposed stitching.

Cheaney haven’t missed out on those red wine shades this season. They’ve combined it with a darker shaded winged tip and smart black sole unit, to make the ideal pair to travel from work to dinner.

The classics are classics for a reason. They last a lifetime and never look out dated. Barker is a great go-to brand for the ever-loved brogue. If you’re feeling bold search online for Haig, McClean or Jackson, and if you want some expert advice, ask a member of our men’s department team. You can find out more from them about how to keep them in tip-top condition too.

Barkers Boots & Peter Kaiser Shoes going to Holland !

Having organized a trip to Holland, Jane was after a new pair of boots, and some simple shoes that would last the transition from day to evening.

Jane originally tried a pair of Hispanitas ankle boots, but they didn’t look quite right on her feet, so tried on a pair of beautiful Barkers, as suggested by Ed, of course. The suede is in a soft burgundy, with a couple of leather buckles around the ankle and a solid leather heel.

They’ll look great with thick grey tights, and a woollen skirt, or even just jeans and a chunky knitted jumper.

The Peter Kaiser evening shoes are in a similar colour palette to the boots, in a deeper purple shade with a black elastic section at the top of the foot.

The toe elegantly tapers inward and the tiny lift at the back make them a sophisticated alternative to a ballet pump.

Jane’s been playing about with a few outfits to match with each pair, meaning her suitcase won’t be totally filled with different shoes for different clothes! A silk printed scarf and simple sparkly beads go beautifully with a crisp white shirt and funky trousers.

One thing she won’t be forgetting, are her new shoe trees…

wondersWonders Fly offers a balanced fusion of flexibility and lightness. Its innovative elastomer Extralight ™ XL optimizes comfort externally.

For the new Autumn/Winter 2016 Wonders collection, colours are versatile and the finishing are classic and quirky. The flatform heel adds a little height, but with no discomfort.

3202 Perilla has a solid, chunky wedge heel and features a beautiful burgundy patent leather upper, with a cute fringe and mock laces. Available in black and cherry.

With a slightly lower heel, 3350 Juniper is your go to wing tip brogue for working through winter. Its corrugated sole unit makes it super light and super flexible.

3344 Lovage has a lower heel too, and a little fringe in mink. They’re smart, comfortable, and like all Wonders shoes, totally unique.

3348 Saffron is a great ankle boot from Wonders this season. Available in black leather or blue suede, they’ve got a chunky, flexible sole and elasticated side panel.
