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.

Mens Essential Summer Casual Shoes.

There have been about three consecutive days of sun now. This must mean it’s summer right?

What it does mean, guys, is that you need to pop your favourite wingtips in the wardrobe for a couple of months. I know they fit like a glove, and I know change can be difficult, but summer won’t be here for long! Treat them with some leather cream, and put them to bed in their care bags.

There’s a whole world of new summer footwear that I need to introduce to you.

Last week we spoke about Pikolinos and their Mediterranean vibes. Well they’ve made their way into the men’s department too, and the leather is softer than ever. The upper and lining are vegetable tanned, and the sole unit is flexible and sporty looking. With the mock lace-up front, you can pair these with casual shorts or trousers, go online and book a holiday to southern Spain. (try Tarifa, it’s great fun!) Once landed, sangria in hand, take a walk along the beach and bask in the glory of having worn these Pikolinos 6986 Fuencarral for the whole time without a twitch of discomfort. You can thank me later. They’re available in European sizes 40-47  for £89.99. Price of subsequent holiday may vary.

My Father has worn deck shoes on our various holidays to Wales for as long as I can remember. In fact, I think he has worn the same pair of deck shoes on our various holidays to Wales for as long as I can remember. This is no bad thing, however. These footwear champs never look out of place. If you have a yacht, with a deck to wear your deck shoes on, then that’s fabulous. Sebagos look right at home stood underneath a glass of Dom Perignon. They’re also very comfortable confidently supporting their fellow man in producing the best open-fire fry-up White Sands Bay campsite has ever witnessed. They’re timeless, versatile and obviously, very comfortable.

This season’s new offerings include ‘Spinnaker’ in wine and navy nubuck or cognac and navy leather. The laces wrap right the way around the foot, creating ultimate comfort and practicality. ‘Dockside’ is available in navy or brown leather and the new dark blue nubuck 70th. Dockside is the style Sebago are famous for. You can’t get more classic than a fully hand-stitched upper, rawhide laces and a non-slip rubber sole (safety first). Wear these with jeans, turned up so a little ankle/sock can be seen, for an immediately contemporary look.

To end this week, I have the pleasure of introducing our very own classic slip-on moccasin. Yes, Golden Boot produce their own shoes, as well as stocking a vast array of inspiring niche brands. Aren’t we lucky? They’re brand new for this season, come in bright red, vibrant blue, an all-purpose light brown, and can spruce up any casual outfit. Off with the black and white humbug office outfit, and on with a soft jacket, decent jeans and those brand new leather-lined beauties. Evening attire sorted; comfortable and polished.

Before buying, think about what you have in your wardrobe already, and be sure to get the colour that you will use the most. These are Italian made, and here at Golden Boot, we love to match style with functionality, so the sole unit is made up of flexible rubber, making them perfect for driving without wrecking the heel. Get them here, Golden Boot 8103 in a choice of four colourways, blue, brown, navy and red, for £99 in sizes 40-46.

Before I let you go, I have one favour to ask of you. PLEASE use some protector spray on them before you head off out. You can thank me for that later too…

A pair of Tamaris deck shoes is the newest addition to my wardrobe.
