Whether you’re manning up and buying that first pair of nice dress shoes or if you never followed the footwear trend back towards sneakers in the first place, Grant Stone is making it easy to snag a pair of their Plain Toe Bluchers in a rare color of shell cordovan — cognac. Keeping in mind the relative scarcity of the exotic shell shades (basically any shade that’s not color 8 or black), $600 isn’t a bad price for a resoleable pair in cognac. And if you’re bemoaning the 8-12 week lead time, keep in mind that there are people who have been on wait-lists for exotic shell colors for literally six years.
The cognac upper is paired with a leather outsole and kip leather lining, with an antiqued reverse welt and edge. Thankfully, cognac is one of the most versatile colors for shoes. So, if you just landed your first real adult job and you’re not sure what shoes go with your only suit (aka the one you interviewed in), these will go down smoothly with whatever you have as well as the next suit you’re able to save up for.
