London bespoke shoemaker Foster & Son is wrapping up their semi-annual American trunk shoe this week, and I stopped by their suite in San Francisco to let them see how the shoes they made for me this year are wearing. After confirming that the fit is at least as good as these things get, Emma and Jon called attention to the Adelaide brogue in the photograph that was the most popular model for them this trip. The company's workshop is brilliant with color, and the sample is a distinctive red-brown.
And then of course I spotted another version of the spectator style shoe that have been a personal fixation this season, these a pair of squarish toed brogued oxfords in cream buckskin and brown calf. Self-discipline got the best of me for a change but you should order a pair.
I in turn will go back to writing about things other than shoes for a while.
