Very nice shoes by Andrew Mcdonald, shoemaker.
Renowned for his passionate approach to bespoke shoemaking, Andrew’s design ethos are present throughout the range by the use of quality materials such as Cordovan, Horse Front and hand finished Calf leathers. Leathers have been sourced from specialist tanneries that employ vegetable tanning techniques. These leathers are carefully manipulated in his studio through a variety of staining and hand polishing processes that create depth and textures unique and different for every shoe.
This season sees McDonald reconfigure classic styles with an architectural twist. The Oxford Derby and Foldover styles, carry on through the signature design asymmetry with the addition of detailed heel cut-outs and reverse stitched straps (revealing the inner workings of shoe construction) and rough hewn sole and heel details. Transeasonal styles such as the Desert Boot and Contrast Oxford put forward on-trend styles in response to the demand and style of androgynous footwear.
