The Industrial Revolution may have changed the world for the better, but it's not without its drawbacks, like pollution, and the Pontiac Aztek. Railing against the revolution to bring you shoes done the old-school way: n.d.c made by hand
n.d.c.'s a handsomely wide-ranging line of high-end dress shoes, boat shoes, and sneakers, created by two dudes fed up with shoddy machine-made kicks, featuring the finest handpicked leathers from Tuscany, and put together by Europe's top old-school craftsmen who construct each shoe by hand, but not hands, meaning the Hamburger Helper guy can make some money on the side. Awesomely worn-looking boat shoes're crafted from soft calfskin, boast suede insoles, and come in either muted earthy tones or contrasting pop colors including yellow and blue, and they've also got a mid-top boat shoe with sweet perforated leather around the ankle called the Freeboard, also a Skynyrd song they always encore with, about when they found an abandoned Chutes 'n Ladders. Because they're just that awesomely versatile, n.d.c.'s also got distressed leather, cap toe dress shoes that wouldn't look out of place in the 1800s, low-top leather plimsoles, two-eyelet desert boots, and super-beat-up suede moccasins with "elasticized gore", which is how his crisis PR team discussed his needs for a new wardrobe
The owner of the Webster (where the whole collection's available), was so into the kicks he actually collabed with n.d.c. to produce a Webster-only mid-top boat shoe that's brown, beige, and auburn, which recalls another thing the Industrial Revolution produced: all manner of devices that make Charles Barkley food.
