Shoe du jour

What if you could have an uber-chic, iconic “IT” look, at a fraction of the price? The original Gucci “Princetown” fur loafer, uses dyed kangaroo fur and has the iconic horse bit hardware. TheĀ Jeffrey Campbell “Apfel” does not. But hey, what do you expect at a fraction of the price? The Apfel is a stylish, laid back interpretation of a fashionista “IT” shoe. Sure there are some sites that do a good job knocking off designer looks ( … check out the Leana basic slipper and tell me that isn’t a Gucci slipper in disguise). The site actually offered a faux fur lined shoe, but the look quickly sold out, so I bought Jeffrey Campbell’s version. Although the shoe has no heel in my opinion, 1/2″, the faux-fur lining is plush, the mule is comfortable and the polished chain-link detail is nice. It’s a vintage look that is fun yet sophisticated, stylish and on-trend with the menswear look.
