Blood And Wine (Shadow)
Walking through Skoaktiebolaget’s door to pick up my new shoes, I was filled with excitement. My first ever pair of the best Portuguese Shoes (Website) had arrived. This excitement culminated in the Carlos Santos Review that I bring you today!
I have tremendous respect for traditional techniques and family businesses, especially when they started during World War II. I can only imagine how hard it must have been to start something back then, survive and live to tell the tale 86 years later.
Well-respected amongst the shoe enthusiast community, Carlos Santos has been making shoes since 1942. With beautiful designs and a personalised patina service, I was curious to try something different. Something that would elevate my shoe collection to another level.
This time I chose to foray into the world of Double Monk Straps, an elegant and unusual dress shoe. In order to take full advantage of the patina service I made a bold colour choice.
