Okay, so you want the look of a sharp semi-dress shoe that can hang with you no matter what the occasion, but don’t want to feel like you’re walking on planks of wood, right? Unmarked‘s Concho Long Wing Brogue is it, fam. The heavy cowhide upper in that concentrated brown shade serves as the perfect backdrop for the decorative perforations and pinking that add a charming, ornate touch without going too far.
These stompers feature a calf leather lining, veg-tanned footbed with cork cushioning, a channeled leather insole, and veg-tanned midsole. Held together with a storm welt construction, the main event on these shoes is that natural crepe outsole. Not only does it provide a great contrast to that black cherry upper, it just makes you want to go out and jump up and down or run down the street or something. Now, how many dress shoes can do that without spawning a trip to a podiatrist? It also makes them easier to pair with more casual pants like jeans and fatigues.
Made in Mexico by skilled craftsmen in a fair trade environment, the Concho Longwing is the quasi-formal shoe your shoe rack is missing.
