Breathable Leather Shoes: Act Quickly!

This post was written by Lindy Dandy.

I found a vintage pair of Allen Edmonds Strawfuts on sale on eBay, but you’ll have to act quickly if you want them.

Why would you want them?  These black wingtips are breathable because a large part of the upper is made with nylon mesh.  It’s a simple solution to overheating shoes that you don’t see in modern shoes.

Honestly, if these were half a size larger, I would buy them myself.

The good news is that Allen Edmonds may bring the Strawfut back for the Spring/Summer 2011 season.  If that’s true, I’ll be buying a couple pairs in different colors!

Happy hunting!
