John Lobb - Spirit of Capitals - Shoes

The venerable London bespoke boot and shoemaker John Lobb (St. James), produced a collection of shoes named the "Spirits of Capitals", the collection was born out of a challenge for the house to craft a pair of shoes that would embody a city in the world. 
See the boot collection here.

For the day I sampled two pairs of side gussets from the "Spirits of Capitals", a "New York" side gusset slip-on and a "Beijing" side gusset laced oxford  in green / grey suede.

"New York" Side gusset from "Spirit of Capitals" collection. This side gusset is very unique in dark pink box paired with antique blue finish box.
