Traditional but Contemporary







I have been looking into some casual winter footwear for the coming season, and have come across some delightful creations by the British company F-Troupe. A fusion of traditional design and modern functionality allows for smarter casual footwear. Something about the classic construction and timeless appeal is highly attractive. It is nice to see footwear that is fashionable and can last a long run, not simply a quick 'trendy' design.

  1. I have huge love for lace-ups whether big or small. Love all those classic designs. Too bad that my guy wouldn't even try them although I insist every time I see one of those.. (ah along with leather sneakers.)

  2. Those seem to be the perfect mix of traditional/contemporary for you, DK. Perfect for what I've seen of your style.

    I love the name of the company, reminds me of the old American TV show, "F Troop."

  10. Mix a Clarks 'wallabe' with a Scandi walk-shoe and you get a 'must have'.
