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.

How not to look after your shoes


Last week we had a customer return to store with Anatomic Gels in hand to find an exact replacement.

He had found the shoes extremely comfortable to wear and so just wanted a replacement pair but on finding the same shoes on display he noticed just how worn out and dry the leather of his old shoes looked. It actually looked like they had been bleached by the sun.

He pointed this out to Sharon in our Men’s department who asked, how did you clean your shoes? It turned out that the shoes had never actually been treated with any leather conditioner, liquid polish or protector spray.

This picture is a good example to show the benefits of using a leather cream. Leather like skin needs moisture to retain it’s glossy and smooth finish. At The Golden Boot we do not recommend the use of tinned polish as it contains alcohol which actually dries out leather causing cracks in the uppers. Dasco leather conditioner will instead moisturize the leather and help to maintain the original quality and look of the shoe. The cream comes in a handy tube with a sponge applicator making it a really quick process, and you only have to treat the shoes once every two weeks. It would be worth noting that if you are using the leather cream on more than one colour leather be sure to remove the sponge and apply the cream with a soft cloth as some colour may transfer from sponge to shoe.

A spray of Protector spray would also help to keep the shoes water resistant and prevent any stains and marks on the surface of the leather.

I am very pleased to say that the customer left with a brand new pair of Anatomic Gel New Recife as well as a tube of Dasco Leather conditioner to make sure that his shoes look better for longer and more importantly last for longer.
