Johnston & Murphy Bagwell Venetian – $99.99 | Trafford Moc Boot – $99.99
Hard to believe, but these two pairs of shoes actually have a few things in common. First, the maker is Johnston & Murphy. The same company that’s been providing shoes to the President of the United States, as a courtesy, since the Millard Fillmore administration.
And the second thing they have in common? They’re both on sale for just under $100. That doesn’t happen often with the Johnston and Murphy Brand.
The boot is a waxed leather, American Woodsman-styled boot. Unforgivingly simple, and that’s what makes it look so good. The loafer is the polar opposite. Italian in inspiration, sleek and sharp with an absolutely perfect toe, it would go perfectly with a lighter gray suit. Together these two pairs of shoes look like a classic Ford Pickup parked next to a Ferrari in the same Garage.
Obtaining both of those vehicles might be a pretty lofty goal… so we’ll just take the two pairs of shoes in our closet.
