For a long time we have been hearing Justin Fitzpatrick over at The Shoe Snob (and now also of J. Fitzpatrick shoes) talk of his coming shoe brand. Well my friends, he made good on his word and the shoes are a reality. More importantly, they are badass.
A few months ago Justin held a pre-order sale so I decided to order two pairs. The Phinney in gray and the Laurelhurst in burgundy. The Phinney is a combination of a saddle and a wingtip, frankly, I have never seen another shoe like it (and I would love if Justin would bring it out in a dark green suede with dark brown sole next). The Laurelhurst is a wholecut loafer with a medallion; the only similar shoes I have seen are bespoke creations and one from my beloved Septieme Largeur.
I will post a proper review once I have worn the shoes around for a while but for now I will say that the shoes are very well made (made in Spain) and the quality control in very strong, which at a 305-350gbp ($465-535) price is expected. But from what I have seen they are well worth it. The shoes are slated to sell at Gieves & Hawkes, however, I have not seen them on the web store yet. So for any sales or other inquiries I would email Justin at Justin.TheShoeSnob@gmail.com.
