I recently was asked what other shoes I like besides Desert Boots. So I thought it was necessary to do a more detailed Top 5 of my list. Just a heads up, there will be lots of McNairy.
Run Of The Mill has had these in store as long as I’ve known, and every time I go to the website I look at these. They’re an exclusive between ROTM and Mark McNairy and probably one of my favourite shoes out there. Sadly they don’t have my size anymore, nor do I have money…
Ok. Yeah, more McNairy… I warned you!!! I remember when these came out. I had never been a Saddle Shoe Fan until I saw these. The navy with the brogued tan leather, it’s just too cool for school. Not too mention the Dainite red brick sole.
I think most people have moved on from these. I’m still stickin’ to this bandwagon though. Everyone is looking for alternatives with the penny loafers, the extremely feminine tassle loafers, and even to straight up slippers. Me though, I’m stayin’ with this classic.
Ok so the last two shoes have already been on my S/S 2011 Top 5, but at least they’re not McNairy’s right? With Spring coming up, it’s too hot for boots and too cold for being sockless. I’m also just a huge Desert Boot fan, and these are the originals.
My roommate has these and they’re really quite legit. I post these because I already posted Navy McNairy’s, I’ve seen these first hand, and no one has actually really convinced me to buy more expensive Bucks yet. Please prove me wrong though, I’m interested to find some better Bucks.
