Designer Paul Smith and bootmaker John Lobb collaborate on a series of special edition shoes, which made its debut on the Paris catwalk at the Paul Smith Spring Summer 2013 show on July 1st. For this collaboration, Paul Smith brings a punctuation of colour to three iconic John Lobb styles. Rather than changing the fundamentals of these fine shoes, the addition of colour respects the original understated style yet brings new life and just the right amount of fun.

Pictured above are the "Westbourne" Oxford shoe with a slight hint of purple. Included within the collaboration are also a Derby shoe in cashmere suede and loafers in full grained calf suede. The shoes will be available worldwide from John Lobb stores and selected Paul Smith shops from September 1st 2012.

Paul Smith makes pretty good shoes themselves. Collaborating with John Lobb just pushes the envelope further. Really loving the oxford shoes above, total wishlisting now. Do you like the Paul Smith x John Lobb shoes?
