Men's Spring'16 Shoes+Sandals by Pikolinos

goes from office to bar-to the ball game...Glasgow $180
"Clean shirt, new shoes...'Cause every girl is crazy 'bout a sharped dressed man..." 

One doesn't even have to be born when that ZZ Top classic dropped to know it is SO true.


classic Derby with pop of sneaker comfort that guys expect-Durban $180
American men wanting to look just so... should get acquainted with the Pikolinos label-by a family owned worldly Spanish brand-offering on trend sartorial selections on how to -fulfill the descriptive advice given up by that 1983 classic song.

chukka style-slightly lower cut-$185
WHY: the silhouettes are focused on what guys need...dressier lace-ups made less precious and insta-comfortable- incorporating bright white foxing-rubber outsole of sneakers, distinctive trims, punch-out details of work ready oxfords that would go just as well with week-end denim, casual slide sandals that are cool looking -not geeky, and sophisticated leather lifestyle sneakers-something Euros get -managing to look hip -yet don't scream wannabe athlete-in the least. YAY.

love the stitching details...reminds us of how a soccer ball (or football as  it is ref-ed everywhere but here)...cozy as a mic but sophisticated enough to wear with trim blazer-trousers...effortlessly dapper attire. Liberpool $180 and on right Fuencarral $180
PLUS-the leather quality is exceptional-especially given the prices-with the label owning its own tanneries-using chromium free dyes to achieve that Mediterranean vibe of soft sun washed tones and deeper hues for Spring 2016---

back Algave, Tarifa sandals $145-$185-rich leathers...lend a sophistication to every day staple-with easy comfort of flip flop.
What else: Buttery smooth slip-on drivers+loafers with stitch details and perforated uppers $175-$180
