A Summer Statement

With winter coming to an end, we decided to be bold with this group-made-to-order. We designed three styles that make a summer statement and celebrate the incoming heat. Our first shoe is our Spectator Full Oxford, also known as our “Gladiator” for the brogue detailing on the vamp. They are also known as the “co-respondent” shoe, but we’ll let you google why. :-) The Spectator Full was the first shoe that Norman designed back in 2001.

He is the urban explorer whose success in life affords him the time to stroll and observe society. To be clear, the Boulevardier doesn’t...
