Kiltie Loafer Revamped: A Double-Black Sequal

Last summer, I introduced to Cobble & Hyde‘s Finchley kiltie loafer in tan in the feature — The Comeback Kiltie. After being enamoured with the shoe, I started consulting for the brand (creative, social media & product design). However, this is not a sponsored post.

If you’re not familiar with the original version of this shoe, the colorway is tan leather & beige suede. Think of an Italian-style spectactor, single monk strap shoe. Very, “I’m going to Pitti Uomo”, eye-catching piece of footwear. They’ve been well-received, but, I knew that bringing in a double-black colorway would make the Finchley kiltie a more versatile shoe.

After sitting down with the Cobble & Hyde team and vetoing their grey/black combo (power of being a consultant), they trusted my gut and created this beauty.

Why The Finchley Kiltie Loafer Works In All Black

As an all black shoe, it has a streetwear appeal, ironically. Rock em’ with distressed black jeans, leather jacket or even t-shirt. The geezerish qualities of brouging & of course the kiltie fringe add soul and whimsey to these shoes without becoming too clownish. 

Aside from their new found streetwear status, these kicks have an unexpected formalwear swerve. Recently, I shot a formal wear feature for Tallia Orange and decided to pair these kilties with a blue tuxedo with black details. In the end, it worked smoothly.
