grenson-blue-and-white-boots

Excluding saddle shoes and a few other exceptions, Izzy is averse to two-toned footwear. And were you to ask him to imagine blue-and-white boots, he would start to gag mentally. And yet there are these highly unusual boots from Grenson, the storied British cordwainer, which, despite consisting of off-white canvas and light-blue leather infill, somehow work wonderfully. They are not exactly meant for everyday wear, but if you find your self running a tropical colony while wearing a pith helmet

    I very much like Balmoral boots.

    Sadly, not all share this opinion. I saw it said today that “The vamp says ‘dress’ and the rest of the shoe says ‘let’s colonize India’. ” :(
