My good bud and Tokyo travel partner Mark McNairy has recently launched a footwear range called Red Brick Soul under his eponymous label. The really nice looking white and dirty bucks, saddle shoes, chukka boots, and loafers are all made in England and all feature — as the name suggests — red brick soles. The shoes — which will be available for purchase this fall — feature Goodyear Welt construction and are priced from $285 to $550. Personally, I love the versatility of a chukka boot or a dirty buck. The saddle shoes even look good and I’m not normally very keen on saddle shoes.
If you are a retailer, you can see Red Brick Soul during market at The Haberdashery Group at the Warwick Hotel January 17th – 20th. I already placed my order. I’ll take one pair of each, thank you very much. —ACL
Look at the laces on the dirty bucks below. The devil is in the details.
