So I know these shoes are we past my prime, but my friend is in love with them. Any idea where to get something else that is white leather and has as low of a profile?
Those are white oxfords. Very unconventional, and I think they're a neat find. It might be easier to find white leather derbies rather than oxfords, though.
I know that common projects have made a white derby shoe, which will have a similar (but not identical) look. http://www.net-a-porter.com/us/en/product/550737?cm_mmc=ProductSearchUS_PLA_c-_-Common%20Projects-_-Shoes-Flat%20Shoes-Brogues-_-120208206275_550737-091&gclid=CjwKEAiA-s6zBRDWudDL2Iic4QQSJAA4Od3Xr7gh59UD2cOuMqhmzX54UO7hmez6wEcT-Z4Fjw9kIRoC2SLw_wcB
Otherwise, if you have money to burn, look for guidis. This kind of thing is right up their alley. pic related, though they're listed as womens' shoes
fwiw I love how beat up those look, and they seem to have a number of years left on them. How often do you brush/condition?
These are on my friends feet and the sole has come away. When they went to get them repaired at a cobbler the guy said there's not enough leather for a resole.
They've just been beaten to death. No conditioning or care as far as I know. They are looking into cheaper options, but I'll pass this info along
Thanks a bunch
