    I sense the coming star of SF 2016 runway- the Laceless. (Brusquely nudging aside yesterday's king of fashion, the poor, soon forgotten double monk).

    I echo your sentiments. Laceless - and side-gusseted shoes (loaders?), for that matter, have thus far been quite overlooked

    The Lazy Man is one of my favourites. Bonafè has started making them with cotton laces for the mock
    laces but I prefer when it's leather actually.

    The Godfather of bespoke, creator of the famed Churchillian chisel, the mentor to George Cleverley and master sensei to all English makers who followed him, Nikolaus Tuczek, invented (If not mistaken) the false lace side gusset shoe. He was making them back in the 1930-40's. Sold to Lobb in early 70's. I believe the shoe below is from circa 1935
