Colourful collar

Desert or chukka boot is what the Americans, Europeans and Australians call what we call the veldskoen. Here is Pierre Hardy's version, bright red with a contrasting collar! I really like the colour combonation.

Ha Australia! 'Zonkey Boot' mens shoes

Zonkey Boot some of the best men's shoes Ive seen in a long time. The company is called Zonkey Boot and is Australian. The name Zonkey is a cross between a donkey and a zebra. Google them they have a great website and the designer writes a great blog.

Watch the video they made to showcase their summer 2011 range, its brilliant. Click on the title ''Ha Australia! 'Zonkey Boot' men's shoes'' to watch.
I particularly like the laces used for the shhoes. My favourite pairs: first pair, third(top choice!), forth and the sixth pair(two-tone ones).

Watch and enjoy

David Kramer has his red vellies back

A while ago David Kramer bought a pair of shoes from me. The shoes he bought is called 'David', yes I named the shoes after him, why? The 'David' is based on the classic vellie, which never quite went out of fashion in South Africa. All I did was refine the vellie and made it more modern.

To finish my David Kramer story... I told him that I have a piece of red patent leather if he was interested in having a pair made up. He said he would think about it. A day later he phoned me to say yes, he would like a red patent pair made up...and the rest is history.

...and here they are together again David Kramer and his red(patent) vellies
