Today's Shoes


Gravati split-toe monkstrap in caramel-colored Radica 03 calf with a combination leather/rubber sole (17194, 697 last). The British would call 697 a "susquare" last; that is, a last where the toe shows a suspicion of squareness. The edges are rounded, but because the radius of curvature on the toe edge is so large, it gives the impression of almost being a square-toe last.


Gravati four-eyelet plain-toe blucher in dark brown grained Lama calf with a combination leather/rubber soles (16493, 640 last). There is no suspicion about 640 last: it is certainly square.
