First off, I'm a little sorry for the lack of posts lately. Since our re-brand as INVENTORY, we have been trying to keep up with everything the best we can, but with a small team, unfortunately we haven't been able to send our days blogging as much as we'd like. That said, with the holiday season around the corner, the time to dress up a little bit more is here. Dinners, parties and get-togethers are a good time to bring out the leather soled goods and these are a couple of my favorites. No surprises, they are very classic models from the best shoe makers around. The short wing make-up for Blackbird is a sharp choice and works great with many outfits and the dark burgundy is always a personal favorite. The lighter brown wing tip from Trickers is another great choice and it's thick leather sole will give you years of looking good and feeling tough before having to be replaced.
