Back to the Office Blues
We made a small batch of shoes with beautiful blue handmade patinas for those of you who are returning to the office this month.
With work attire changing dramatically over the last couple of years, these shoes and patinas are perfect for the more dress casual environment of 2022.
Our first shoe is a restock in our Mario Cap Toe Oxford in a handmade Orion patina.
Mario is our elegantly proportioned Cap Toe Oxford featuring French box calf leather from Tanneries du Puy, our asymmetric pattern with no center back seam, and a thinly carved waist.
With classic five eyelet lacing, an elongated vamp, and subtle brogue accents along the toe cap, Mario is the shoe that many people start with if they want to give our brand a try and need a more formal shoe.
We selected our Orion patina because it is perfect for those who want to have a classic Norman Vilalta shoe with our signature reverse patina but need a color combination that isn't too aggressive to wear to work.
Our Mario Cap Toe Oxford shoes compliment a navy or grey suit beautifully and will spruce up a casual outfit on the weekends.
Our second shoe is a restock in our Derby Simple Shoe in a Mediterranean blue handmade patina.
Our Derby Simple is the shoe that many people start with if they are new to our brand and need a more casual dress shoe.
Our Derby Simple features country calf leather from Tanneries du Puy, 4 eyelet lacing with swan stitch detailing on the facings, our asymmetric pattern with no center back seam, and a comfortable and durable Vibram Commando Sole.
The Mediterranean blue compliments a wide variety of clothing, and is eye catching without being overly distracting. Pair them with a grey or navy suit or dress them down with more casual khakis or dark denim.
Our final shoe is our Hemingway Derby Boot in an Orion handmade patina.
Hemingway features an elegant mix of textures with the combination of French box calf leather from Tanneries du Puy combined with box vegano inca from Tanneries du Annonay.
Four eyelet lacing with three speed hooks support easy and flexible fitting and the unlined shaft enables increased ankle mobility. Hemingway’s Vibram rubber button sole delivers comfort that will support your feet throughout the day and the Goodyear-welt ensures that your boots will last a lifetime.
We selected an Orion patina again for the handmade patina’s wonderful versatility. The color looks nearly black in low light and a dark blue under sunlight. The color combination will stand out tastefully at work and looks great with most weekend wardrobes.
Every pair of shoes are bench made, Goodyear-welted, and hand finished by our artisan team in Spain before shipment.
