In 2009, New York based creative firm Shipley & Halmos was nominated for the CFDA Rising Star Award, set to recognize new voices in American menswear. Since then, they’ve become known for their easy to wear pieces; their focus on closet staples redefined with a sharp tailoring can make any man look perfectly put together. For Spring, they’ve released the Scottie, a slip-on loafer that is the perfect alternative to the boot or sneaker. Made with nubuck leather, the rain won’t seep through to your feet; the soles are sewn on, one of the characteristics you want to pay for in a shoe. The softness of the leather is light enough that you can wear them without socks, which also make the Scottie a perfect shoe to wear in the summer, instead of those tired Chucks or Vans that everyone else is sporting. So take the step ahead and wear these everywhere, the sandy color is a guarantee that they’ll look great with just about everything in your closet this season.
