I love a great buckle. And I’m actually quite picky about them because I want to be careful to avoid looking like I’m wearing Pilgrim shoes. The buckle has to be the right size, shape and just add a touch of hardware to the shoe. Nothing is worse than an overpowering buckle.
So today I chose a pair with perfectly placed buckles. The brown leather is soft and pretty, and the buckles give a utilitarian look. Military-inspired styles are trending right now, and when they look like this, I can see why.
