Usually when you see someone or something sporting more than one trend at a time, that someone or something gives off a tragic air of trying too hard; of being a victim. It takes a truly special individual (person or wardrobe item) to rise above the sum of those parts—and that’s exactly what this shoe from Antonio Maurizi does. It combines the three monster trends of spring footwear—suede brick-soled bucks, saddle shoes, and color—and does so seamlessly. How? It’s all about balance: The navy suede looks great with the brick sole, and the tone-on-tone saddle detail adds a little something without being overpowering. When you add in the expert Italian craftsmanship that has made Maurizi a favorite in the Gilt MAN offices, it’s pretty much a no-brainer that this shoe will be getting lots of floor time come April.
