Wardrobe staples is a term that, depending on where you look, encapsulates a vast array of pieces. However, Christian Louboutin have firmly defined two new classic styles; the Education (with the brogue detailing) and the Trepeter (the plain Derby), both of which are well crafted shoes for the well curated man. Both made from calf leather, the Education is a full-brogue dress shoe, which in the hand painted cognac colour will take you from day-to-night, dress – with a suit – or dress casual – with a pair of jeans and a crisp, white shirt.
The Trepeter is handcrafted from superfine Calf Patine leather, a sleek and sophisticated look where the orlato detail gives it a crisp and structured silhouette that looks great in the plain black. With the Education retailing at £825 and Trepeter at £795, they are well worth the investment and can be bought from the Louboutin Men’s Store on Dover Street and at Selfridges, both in London – and Internationally online at the Christian Louboutin website.
