Tricker’s is really keeping up with the demand as they’ve dropped another collaboration, this time teaming up with Sweden’s SCOUT for this small collection. The first of the two offerings is the Beechnut Burnished Derby Brogue, one that reinvisions a collaboration between Kenneth Mackenzie of 6876 and Tricker’s from roughly ten years ago. It features a calf leather shell atop a red Dainite sole, as well as brass eyelets and Tellason laces. The Midnight Blue Suede Derby Brogue looks great as well, especially with its navy Repello suede upeer and Dainite sole. Shop the goods at SCOUT.
End Hunting Co., the in-house label for the UK’s End Clothing, has teamed up with Tricker’s for a pair of two tone long wing brogues. It’s a subtle reworking of the Golosh country brogue exclusively constructed from contrasting full grain and smooth, waxed calf-leather panels. Of course we added some bespoke features such as the alternate brass top eyelet and tonal Dainite sole for added durability during these colder months, also not forgetting the unique woven cotton heel pull.
These brogues are available both in store and online in two colourways.
A small crew from Por Vocacao took a recent trip to Tuscany, Italy, home of shoe manufacturer Buttero. This video which covers their trip and gives us a look at the inner workings of Buttero, sheds light on a family-owned and operated company that’s extremely close in relation and one that’s filled with people that share the same passion for making quality product. “We learned about their ways, their craftsmanship, Tuscany’s unique leather making background and truly understood what sets Buttero apart from other shoe brands in the market.” The Sani family, owners and founders of Buttero, are true representatives of this Italian and their genuine love for the trade shows in this video. Enjoy.
Each season, Superdenim puts together a collaborative collection that looks to capture a bit of the store’s personality. For Fall 2011, they’ve released four footwear styles that are limited to just 11 pieces each and are exclusive to the shop. Among them are the Multitone Derby brogue in black as well as brown and the Multitone Stow Brogue Boot in black as well as brown. They’re available now through Superdenim’s online shop.
SeaVees pays homage to ski pioneer Alexander Cushing with the release of the 02/60 5 Eye Trail Boot. Cushing is well known for the securing Squaw Valley as the site for the 1960 Olympic Winter Games and these boots take inspiration from that time. They’re made from aniline leather nourished with oils which will allow it to take on its own look over time. The hand-sewn Moccasin stitch features a heavy, waxed thread while the laces are made from oil stuffed rawhide leather.
Ronnie Fieg drops another momentous shoe as part of his ongoing collaboration with Sebago. This time, the designer’s opted to drop this whip stitch boot in two different colorways, both perfect for the cooler season upon us. The traditional Docksides outsole is dropped for a revised Campside sole, with a slight wedge in the back for added detail. The whip stitch on the toebox make the Seneca boot really stand out and when paired with the brown laces, it really turns out to be a special project. The Seneca boot is limited to 360 pairs per color and retails at $150 USD. Both colors will be today at 11am EST at Kith Brooklyn and Ronniefieg.com.
Superdenim and Viberg have teamed up to create a fine selection of Oxfords for the F/W 2011 season. The 145 Oxford is available in four different finishes, each with their own unique details. Our favorite happens to be the tan rough out suede variety shown above (shots of the other finishes below). It features a deconstructed toe and an upper that’s made from an incredible rough out suede leather. The wedge sole works well with the tan shell and the brown details in the stitching, laces really stand out. Each boot is hand made in the Viberg factory in Victoria, Canada.
While the masses are still recovering from the unveiling of their American-made shirting for Fall 2011, Run of the Mill has gone ahead and hit us with looks at their footwear offerings as well. There are five different styles in the range, with three of them being of the Double Monk variety. The standout piece for the fall season ahead is the label’s tassel loafer in a cola suede shell and leather sole. Many will question the team’s sole/style combinations but we’re all for going against the curve.
Look for more details on these in the days ahead.

Here’s a look at Maison Martin Margiela’s latest footwear offering for F/W 2011.
