When a wingtip is too laid-back, and a cap-toe balmoral is just too formal... the semi-brogue is your shoe. (It's also great for the office.) Ours are benchmade in small quantities at a tiny, family-run factory in Italy with a Goodyear welt and a closed-channel leather sole. This pair is made up in a lighter-colored calfskin that will take on a great burnish the more you wear it.
“On the surface, the answer is super simple – it means they are resoleable… Resoling your shoes is essentially the same as replacing the tires on your car. When you wear your tires down, you don't get a new car... you install new tires, get them balanced & re-aligned, and you're good to go for a few more years. Then you repeat the process.”
