gucci "wimbledon" dress shoes

my original intention on saturday was to go to selfridges to see if they have the green prada loafers, but i went to check out the sales rack instead (no they don't have the green loafers). and i was thrilled to find this pair of gucci shoes as i had always wanted it:

this pair of shoes is from 2 seasons ago but the design is timeless. fashion fades, style remains. here's the runway pics from gucci fall/winter 2007 (which is my favourite post tom ford season to date):



gucci "wimbledon" dress shoes from selfridges london, was GBP285, and after various further mark downs and extra discounts during last week of sales, i paid GBP126 for this pair of shoes. stunning if i may say!

  3. I think the polished leather just makes it so. It's a natural thing for leather especially on high stress areas...all shoes look like that after being worn.:-) so you are not alone.

    Same here, no more shopping for me for a while.:-)

  11. Yeah the AW07 is my favorite post-Tom collection as well. Very nice loafers you got there. I'm jealous, congrats on the purchase.

    I have also looked into buying a pair of luxury loafers and will start my Prada or Gucci hunt in a few months.

  12. I've been a long time lurker of your blog, and I must say that you have great stuff in here, not to mention in your closet. :) I love these Gucci shoes of yours, unfortunately, they're not available where I live (Manila). Would it be too much to ask if I request you to get a pair for me? I'll send you the payment, of course. Let me know if this is possible. I hope they're still available, though.:)

  13. thanks RG :)

    the shoes are over 2 seasons old, and i bought it at the last week of sale so i don't think i can find them easily in london.

    however bluefly has them in different colorways at about US$400, try them?
