Five Footwear Styles To Look Out For This Week

A stark difference to weekends of the past, the current COVID-19 situation has seen us all in lockdown, eager to get outside and enjoy the Spring. Thankfully - at the time of writing - the weather has decided to come out and we have been able to pass the time outside in the garden or during our hour activity outside - social distancing measures adhered to of course.

Usually at this time of the year we would send our Spring/Summer look book for inspiration, however due to the lockdown sadly we haven’t been able to. We thought a lot of you may be in the same situation as us, wanting to start wearing your Summer clothes but not sure what…As such, we have put together a list of five footwear styles to look out for over the next week based upon insights from our online store and our social media...We hope you enjoy the read.


Both Colours Of The Kingston Slides


Originally intended for those jetting off to sunnier climates, we have seen a sharp rise in customers purchasing of our Kingston Sliders as the style has now transformed into a loungewear hybrid. A lot of customers have been sending their #WalkWednesday pictures working from home, pairing the sliders with white sports socks which look great. We have also seen some great garden images with our Kingston Trim Sliders being paired with shorts and t-shirt.

Suede West Tassel Loafers


It’s usually about this time every year we start to see an increase in demand for our West Tassel Loafers…and this year is no different. It feels like a natural progression as the sun starts to come out for many of us to set aside the winter shoes, and start wearing summer loafers. Best worn with no show socks, our West loafers are perfect for the sunny weather and look great paired with chinos or shorts.

Dressing Down With The Kilburn Sneaker


A continuation of this week's trend for light colours, the white and stone versions of the Kilburn Sneaker have started to become a fan favourite after being released a couple of months ago. The style comes in either a classic White leather or Stone suede upper combined with a sturdy rubber sole, perfect for those who want a smart casual pair of trainers. We have tested these out in jeans, chinos and shorts, and they work great for all. Show us how you wear them with our #WalkWedensdays tag on Instagram

Working From Home In Formal Brogues


Whilst we have seen an increase on our more casual styles, it is no surprise the Tribute Brogue has also entered into our list of trending shoes this week. As many of us are working from home, a top quote going around is “dress smart, work smart” and this still applies even when working from home. As such these brogues are the perfect balance of smart casual to get you in a productive mood to WFH.

A Classic Chelsea Boot Will Never Go Out Of Fashion


Our best-selling Chelsea Boot is featured once again – the Hornchurch Chelsea style rounds off this week's top 5 list. This classic style has been a fan favourite for a number of seasons for good reason, and this year is available in Stone, Taupe and Black. This clean style looks great with just about any jeans and light coloured chinos, and are sure to keep you comfortable all day long.
