Today's Shoes


Gravati side-zip plain-toe Bologna-constructed ankle boots in dark brown kangaroo (16821, last 683). Kangaroo is an interesting leather. It is significantly thinner than calfskin, but it has more tensile strength. It also shines up beautifully. Kangaroos are apparently nasty buggers, so getting unmarked hides or usable sections of hides is very difficult. Gravati managed to get some good-quality ones, though.


Gravati whole-cut plain-toe bluchers in British tan with a rubber lug sole (16368, last 640). Rubber soles seem appropriate given the crappy weather. Gravati uses nice reversed seams for the facings on these shoes, which is unusual.
