Very rarely do I fall in love with a shoe like I have right now. I will be performing at a conference within the next week and you will never guess what I will be donning on my feet. The navy blue Oliver 2 shoes are produced by Justin Reece, a premium British shoe brand that brings sophisticated to a whole new level.
From their Clayton brown boots to their Churchill black & white classic brogues, you could spend hours drooling and ogling their product line, however the shoes I chose upon were the red and blue Oliver’s due to the way the colours worked so well together.
As you can see from the images, the red is visible through the eyelets right alongside the laces, matching the colour of the inside of the shoes. The is also combined with both blue and red laces, those little touches that will make you stand out in the crowd.
The front of the shoes are burnished, to offer a truly vintage appearance, however these are burnished by hand so what I love is every pair is different. These are MY shoes, there are other pairs like it, but these are unique and mine only.
The inside of the shoes are made of a durable commando rubber sole, while the shoe material is made from soft nubuck leather.
It also has a wooden effect heel, once again adding to that vintage appearance. You can pick these up for £84.99, definitely worth the price. The broguing (decorative perforations at the toes of the shoe) is absolutely incredible and make this a must-have for your wardrobe.
A nice added bonus was that the shoes actually came with a shoe horn. Considering this is the first time I have ever owned one, I can’t understand how I lived without one beforehand. I spend way too long edging my feet into my shoes each day, while it slips right in with the horn. Plus it has the Justin Reece branding on the shoe horn, adding to the glamourous image.
What Can I Wear Blue Shoes With
If you’re looking for something a bit more casual then you might want to try indigo jeans or navy chinos. Black and blue can work amazingly in a formal setting, but it depends how well you match up your clothing and how ‘formal’ you have to be. If you have some fashionably creative freedom then you can pull these off without too much hassle.
