SP  The tale of a shoe. It starts with craftsmanship, interweaving with subplots of various style elements and ending on the description of a gentleman.

These green double monk strap loafers are stunning! The racing green patina on the calf definitely gets the heart beat racing upon first sight. The green alligator strap completes a vivid picture of nature's color magically impressed onto the shoes.

When the weather offers a day for rain boots, I instead take out these shoe warriors to handle the wet road conditions.

Really like this photo a lot! The photo highlights one of my favorite shoes from anywhere and the patina of each loafer is so so nice!

Monk strap loafers in their various styles have always been shoes that caught my interest. Some of these tend to be more casual while some can be as elegant as any oxford. This one here is a very nice example of the strap loafer achieving that elusive look of simplistic beauty.

Getting ready to eat one of my favorite meals. Not at a Michelin restaurant, but I look forward to it as much as any three star places. This one requires the jacket off. Bon appétit.

A Monday duality of shoes. Life is often full of dualities and not all of them are always conflicting. These calf and suede shoes combine to create an offering that is far more attractive than individually by itself. Using a foodie analogy, they go like uni and ikura (sea urchin and salmon roe) together. Each is already tasty by itself, but when merged, the combined flavor becomes exquisite.

Even at nearly 10pm, this was the scene presented. How can one not fall in love with this city?

It is so wonderful to have noticed the incredible color synchronicity between the tiles on the floor and the patina on my shoes. This provided a great photo backdrop.

My version of a reward. After a busy time of hustle and bustle, a nice cup of cappuccino at a historic cafe. Nothing fancy, but oh so good.

Seeing a wall full of beautiful small leather goods is reminiscent of the feeling from childhood when walking into a candy shop. It's sometimes hard to keep the mental drool from becoming too apparent.
