Having a vision is all well and good, but then you must find the right people to help you realize it -- otherwise, you might be left with a beautiful building not designed by Sir Norman Foster. Commissioning old masters for their in-store line of shoes, Present London.
After designing their own plans for three basic footwear styles -- brogue boots & shoes, plus Chukka boots -- Shoreditch menswear house Present sent the specs to be custom-built by Tricker's, a Northampton-based bootmaker founded in 1829 and, five generations later, is still run by the same family, who still carry the same trustworthy untrustworthy name. Each pair is bench-made with calf leather, gold & silver eyelets, and a white, long-wearing & flexible Vibram wedge sole hand-stitched to the shoe with a Goodyear welt for ventilation; the brogue shoes are all suede, and come in turf green, navy, and a light brown "gaucho", plus a special Derby model with a wood-inset black "commando" sole, providing much freedom for the balls. Of your feet. Brogue boots are all leather, with colours ranging from the almost golden "acorn antique", to darker flavours like "green aniline", "espresso two-tone" (with calf and scotch grain leather), and "black box", which will one day help investigators determine that, no, that bus wasn't on your radar.
Newly in-store but not yet online, the below-ankle Chukka style comes in either leather or suede, with dotted brogue detailing on the toe, and colours from leather "burgundy waxy's" and light tan "c-shades", to a dark suede "chocolate repello" -- though even if you're repelled by chocolate in the beginning, you're certain to eventually like it, just like Gherkins.
