My RTW shoe "Pyramid"

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
Let's take a pictorial view of the RTW shoe pyramid, shall we?



Most of you will note with horror that the "Reaction" line from the brand which shall not be named is at the top. This pyramid inversion represents the influence of this forum, which has skewed my collection to quality.

I'll begin from the "top" down:
Center: KC's take on the Norwegian toe
Right: Rockport DressSport
Left: Bass captoe


Next up (front row) we have some Italian pebble grain captoes from Asprey on the left, Tyrwhitt's suede semi-brogues, and some venetian loafers ,also CT. In the back row are Brooks Brothers cordovans, Polo Darltons in black and cordovan, and Tyrwhitt's version of the Loake Wells, from the "calfskin" line.



Finally on the left are Lattanzi brown plaintoes for Asprey, EG black plaintoes for Asprey...


Here are the EG acorn brogues for Asprey, the same shoes in black, and the burgundy city boots!

SOme nice shoes there. Nice thread idea, although if Andrew does this the pyramid may be to scale to Kheop's one Edit: those burgundy city boots look just bloody gorgeous. Could we see more images pleeeeeease?

Though I do have a range of quality in my shoes sufficient for a pyramid shape, I suspect others' pyramids would be even more quality heavy.

Here's another pic of the boots. I'm trying to keep them a little less polished
than dress shoes, so I don't always look like the shiny shoe dude.

There's nothing wrong with being the shiny shoe dude.

I'm in the extreme minority in that I love boots but don't understand the affection for the EG City Boot - looks a bit clunky to me. That acorn Asprey brogue, on the other hand, is dreamy.

I like them both. Quite a bit

The boots would look better on a different last. Part of the lust, I think, is for the sheer amount of beautiful burgundy leather in a vaguely burlesque design.

Boots! Acorn Asprey caught my eye. Handsome, these two in particular.

You should put shoe trees in the Lattanzis!

Thread Starter 
Shoe trees always reside in my shoes for at least several days after wearing. Most of my shoes crease badly, and these Lattanzis most so, because my foot doesn't fill out the leather between the lowest lace and the toe. I have a high arch, and this creates dead space in shoes between the lacing and the toe.

The most exasperating creasing is in the cordovan shoes, which have some serious hummocks.

Would you argue that keeping shoe trees in the shoes after they've dried has a benefit with regard to creasing? I have several Brooks gift cards I'll put to use once the trees go $18.00 again (sale).

I believe the phrase 'RTW Shoe Pyramid' is © Jcusey. He may ask you to remove this as I believe he does have his own team of shoe lawyers...

He wouldn't be the first.
