*Insert snow pun here*

Posted on: January 21st, 2013 by Drew No Comments

The heading was going to be ‘This weather is Snow Joke for your Shoes’ but it was just so lame couldn’t get myself to put it. So I have spared my dignity and left it empty.

Unable to open the door without an mass of snow coming in?  Freezing cold in the office? Siberian wind biting into you as you wait for the bus? Slipping on the ice?  If some/all of these are relevant to you, spare a thought for your shoes, not only are they stuck on the end of your legs all day, this weather is just TERRIBLE for them.  I could put a 1000 words on how to help them,  but I’ll try to give you dear reader just a couple of clear points:

1.  Rotate your shoes

2. Wipe them down at night

3. Scotchguard on the upper.

4.  Buy some skis and save your shoes!

Our brave Sunshiners are trudging there way through the snow so you can have your office shoeshine.  However, the weather being so bad there are inevitably hold ups, please bare with us we’ll be there as soon as we can!

Shoes: All Time top 5

Posted on: January 10th, 2013 by Drew No Comments

Alright, I’ll confess!  I’m a shoe addict,  (is it okay to be a man and be a shoe addict?)  Now, I know it’s probably not a massive surprise given the nature of what I do, but to others outside of my job it can create some surprised responses. 

We all like a good list, never fails to create a bit of a stir.  So here I have put together the all time greatest mens shoes;

5.  J M Weston – Slightly overpriced.  Nice looking shoes. French despite the english name.

4. R M Williams – Australian boot.  Look good both casually and formally.  The wholecut is the one to go for.

3. Crockett and Jones – The full brogue is beautiful.  Picking up a lot of trade since the demise of Church’s label.

2.  Edward Green – It was a toss up for number one,  just missing out.  Spectacular handmade shoes, by a genuine family business. Expect to part with £600 for the off the peg.

1. John Lobb – This is the bespoke, (not to be confused with the off the peg Lobb which is totally different and owned by Hermes brand).  A pair will set you back £2500, but you’ll be in good company, as everyone from Elizabeth II, Frank Sinatra and Imelda Marcos has a pair.

Make sure if you have a pair of these you find a good London shoeshiner! The women’s top 5 coming soon!
