The last Friday before Christmas. As my fall/winter run comes to an end, I wanted to release these in time for the holidays. This “Gunsmoke” grey nubuck has quickly become one of my favorite colors/materials to work with. The feel and hand to this leather is perfect, its soft yet rugged and adding a nice leather lining helps keep the construction of the upper sturdy. The condensed crepe soles are a bit different from what we are used to seeing and matches nicely with the rest of the shoe. To really understand what this shoe is all about you must feel them in person, the craftsmanship is flawless and they really make for a unique pair in your closet. Priced at $110, a limited run of 48 pairs will be available this Friday December 17th 10am Est. at the David Z. flagship (556 Broadway between Prince and Spring st 212.431.5450) as well as online at
