    “You can do anything that you wanna to do, but honey, you stay off of my blue suede shoes.”

    The proverbial “Blue Suede Shoes” of song and story are, stylistically, one of the sleekest designs and come trailing clouds of history. The hand sewn welt gives the impression of a bespoke shoe although it is ready-made, but, custom-made or not, this shoe will never fail to draw compliments. Typical of fine early-century American craftsmanship, with hand-sewn sole and mixed canvas and leather lining, it will be an impressive addition to the daytime wardrobe or to your more playfull evening dress. In deepest midnight blue suede, it shows black at night and makes this a charming if unconventional formal shoe…but, a warning!, with your guitar and jeans you may well be mistaken for Elvis on one last tour of the planet before closing time.
