The John Lobb Weir Shoe for the Quintessential Man

You might own a hundred pair of shoes, but nothing will come close to a pair of John Lobb‘s, fact. The renowned English Boot-Maker has been producing some of the most qualitative footwear for over a hundred years. Yes, a hundred years!

Following on from a recent collaboration that saw twenty hand selected guests hosted over an intimate Gentlemen’s Cocktail evening to celebrate John Lobb’s bespoke service, I wanted to showcase my very own pair of John Lobb shoes in a classical setting. So, during last month’s short trip to Paris, it was time to pull my pair out of their dust bags!

A five eyelet Balmoral Oxford shoe, the Weir Shoe is platformed on a double leather sole ensuring you are heard loud and clear. Pay attention to the Palladium lace eyelets at the top of each shoe, a very distinctive detail that has become a prominent feature across the brand’s Alder boots. Most gentlemen, including myself, tend to sway towards neutral colours when choosing a pair of shoes such as black or brown. However, with the help of Cyrille, the John Lobb Dubai Mall Boutique, I was introduced to a gorgeous colour, plum.
