Shoes and Shoe Care Products
Leather is not cheap which is why I am big on protecting and maintaining it. Chamberlain’s Leather Milk has produced a series of numbered products for thorough leather treatment: #1 for conditioning, #2 for cleaning, and #3 for waterproofing.This is not just for men but for anyone who wants to really pamper his leather goods.
Oxford style shoes are popular because they add both sophisticated style and a touch of visual interest to a suit or a pair of slacks. There are a variety of details that are present in an Oxford, including toe caps, closed laces, and sometimes punched leather holes called brogues. The shoes we are reviewing by J.L. Rocha are Style 901, a beautifully designed, honey-colored all-leather Oxford.

It’s safe to assume you don’t have to be a cowboy to love a pair of Lucchese western boots. The Lucchesse Classics 1883 boots are crafted from leather, have cushioned insoles for walking comfort and feature fancy stitched, leather corded shaft detail. You can’t go wrong with a trusted brand, a classic style, and fantastically sturdy leather. Enough said.
For men who understand the importance of shoes, there are very limited options in the brick-and-mortar world. We selected the finest Italian calfskin leather that’s used by the greatest luxury brands in the world. We negotiated aggressively and cut some deals. It wasn’t easy, but we did it. And after a whirlwind, James Bond-like tour (minus the laser-shooting Omega), we’re making our shoes available to you.
