—01. Calf leather.
The Japanese shop Doo-Bop has worked with longstanding US footwear specialists Alden, to produce an exclusive pared down slip-on. Cut from a single piece of supple cowhide, this unique model would be a great choice for anyone searching for a loafer style devoid of tassels, penny detailing and other classic attributes. For me the beauty of this shoe resides in its no-nonsense design, as I often find these other bells and whistles too traditional, or else a little superfluous.
