Black Calfskin Loafer
PLEASE NOTE: Items reduced 50% or greater are Final Sale with no returns accepted.
A few years ago, tired of their daily grind and inspired by a street market in Istanbul, something clicked for these two lawyers from Atlanta. The resulting brand, Res Ipsa (from the Latin phrase res ipsa loquitur meaning, “the thing speaks for itself"), started taking shape with a small production run of loafers made from vintage Kilim rugs found at the bazaar.
We're always fans of pushing the envelope a bit with footwear, so we jumped at the chance to make a black calfskin loafer that looks as good with a tuxedo as it does with a pair of beat up jeans. The shape is great, and well-balanced, offering something sleek, but not overly so. The full-grain leather will age beautifully and the tone on tone calfskin piping helps to keep things elegant, but never stuffy. Did we mention how comfortable these are? You might mistake them for your house slippers if you're not too careful. If your footwear are feeling a little stale, you can't go wrong with these black calfskin loafers to separate yourself from the herd.
Res Ipsa shoes run true to size and come in whole sizes only. If in-between, we recommend sizing down 1/2 size.

Brown Calfskin Cap Toe Monk Strap
When building a shoe wardrobe, a brown monk strap may be one of those "staple" shoes. Made for us by our friends at Carmina in Spain, our take on the classic monk strap is one that we built to be versatile, comfortable and the workhorse of your dress shoe closet. The all calfskin upper with single monk strap buckle and cap toe are characteristics that make a shoe the perfect balance of dressy when it needs to be and easy going & smart when it is paired with jeans and a sport coat. In addition, brown calfskin hits the mark when it comes to making an easy decision to be your "go-to" for any event that requires more than trainers or moccasins. Buckle them up with your navy suit to medium grey trousers and blazer right down to jeans, sport coat and open collar shirt. Our Carmina Brown Monk Strap goes perfectly in the office and across the street to date night.
