The Italian Cap Toe
There are things we should all be checking off the list. Reading more. Composting. Digging out the quarry to make a swimming hole. Owning a pair of shoes like this.
It’s not that incredibly rich and supple Italian shoes make you a better person, but I do know you will look better; better in jeans with the knees nearly worn out; better in three-piece suits or tweed jackets.
When you pull these exquisite pieces from your closet, the aroma of the leather will carry you into a narrow cobblestone street in Florence, down stone steps into a dungeon-like cordwainer shop carved from the earth. The light is amber and soft and it looks like the cobbler took 100 painstaking hours to stitch, stretch, and nail each perfect pair.
Another good thing checked off the list.
