Object Of Desire: Sole Man

Duckie Brown goes brogue.

Guys usually walk a fine line between classic and cool when it comes to style, often without a lot of interesting options, while the fairer sex seems to have all the fun. Thankfully, that may finally be changing.

In a partnership that can only be described as marrying old with new, 100+ year-old American shoe brand Florsheim mixes it up with their Fall 2012 collection by directional design brand Duckie Brown.

Duckie Brown’s Beaded Brogues with Multi-Color and Black Sprinkles have the foundation of this timeless men’s style (traditional perforations, Goodyear welt construction, leather sole with rubber tap) but the mock candy-coated topping tosses tradition right out the window with a fresh (and funky) update on this tried and true classic.

Were Duckie Brown designers Daniel Silver and Steven Cox having a Willy Wonka moment? Who knows for sure…but we can be certain that these wonderfully witty kicks look good enough to eat.

Beaded Brogues in Black or Sprinkles, by Florsheim by Duckie Brown, $500. Chocolate Birthday Cupcake by Georgetown Cupcake, $2.75 each, $29 dozen. $55 dozen with nationwide shipping.
