Union Busters

Because a hefty wingtip should be worth its weight in years.

Because you shouldn’t have to go to Europe for Euro-quality kicks.

And because you don’t want to pay $750 to walk down the sidewalk, period.

That’s why you want to be shopping with Cobbler Union, which peddles Goodyear-welted dress kicks for about $400.

Think John Lobb or Ferragamo, but 60% off.

They’re not skimping on the shoe’s details: Natural calfskin leather. Closed channel stitching. Fiddleback beveled waist. Clean, elegant lines.

Three we particularly dig:

  • The Spectator, an Oxford for your Gatsby moments
  • The Winchester, a cap-toe boot that wears well with denim or suits
  • And The Benjamin, a “shoe glove” — i.e. comfortable, brown suede Chelsea boot.

All these are small-batch wares — CU’s making as few as 12 per pair. Or, check out their made-to-order series.

They’ll make something completely unique, just for you.

Nota bene: Speaking of just for you, use the code “ihook100” (without the quotes) in the next 48 hours and receive $100 off your order.
