Today's Shoes

Gravati cap-toe double monkstraps in forest green suede (Gravati calls it moon suede because of the spots that are all over it) with a storm welt and a rubber lug sole (15847, 671 last). Would you believe me if I told you that these were actually fairly conservative shoes? No? Well, you should. In any event, one of the features of these shoes is the treatment that Gravati has given the seams. Instead of just having raw edges of suede, they have added a thin strip of piping in a forest green calf at every seam. It's very subtle, but it's an example of why Gravati is such an excellent shoemaker.
