Contemporary Shoes. Streamlined. Narrow. Slim Soles.

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Can anybody reccomend some good quality contemporary shoes. I'm after something streamlined, narrow with a slim sole and Pointed/tapered toe. A nice leather or suede.

Something similar to whats shown below. Doesn't necessarily have to be like the modern take on the brogue style.


Thanks for any help.

I just tried some To Boot by Adam Derrick. Not this severe, but be cautioned, the elongated toe bumped me down a half size.

try scrolling thru zappos.com, in the dress shoe-oxfords section...seems like I see a lot of shoes similar to this in my recollections.

and there's at least a handful of similar shoes on Nordstrom.com website too.

Seriously. Those things are fucking startling.

But, if it's what you want, I'd look at Prada or Gucci, on the cheaper side, or Berluti or some of the more high-end Italian cobblers. I remember a while ago someone posted a series of very severe Italian shoes. I don't think they were Mantellassi, but they were something similar.

The C&J Clifford is streamlined and narrow, but doesn't have a slim sole and isn't pointed. It might be a good compromise.
When you said slim sole, I immediately thought of Artioli.

Those winklepicker-esque shoes can be found from Patrick Cox to bespoke.

Gucci has that very design. I just got a tan pair at NM and am waiting for presale to end to pick them up.

speaking of Cox, George Cox makes a great winklepicker. I used to have a pair, very classic 50s design winklepicker and it's goodyear welted and the soles are very slim.

Thankyou everyone for the reccomendations. Yes, the pair I initially posted do seem quite severe! They don't necessarily have to be THAT severe but somewhat in that vein. Thanks for the George Cox reccomendation Get Smart, I checked out the site and these look quite nice, although am not a fan of the leather they are done in : (Picture doesn't seem to be showing up) Can anybody else reccomend or show me photos of (even better!) shoes that have a slim sole, not bulky at all, and are sleek/streamlined/narrow, matte looking leather or suede, not necessarily as severe as the first picture I posted.

I wouldn't buy a shoe that's THAT pointed. But I seem to recall having seen such pairs in both D&G and YSL's lines. Pretty certain that Oliver Sweeney and Gucci also do them. If you want to pay big bucks, Berluti also offers some extremely pointy models I think.

Don't think any of the more traditional makers have anything that pointy.
