TSUBO Men's Oxford Shoe

Mating oxford brogue styling with sneaker tech, this retro-inspired, super-cool lace-up from Tsubo will give your wardrobe a definite edge.
A double-density contoured footbed with a fabric and dual-layer mesh lining enhances comfort and air circulation, while a grippy leather sole uses elongated rubber traction bubbles to provide comfort and traction.
Looks just as good with trousers as it does with denim!
(RRP US$200)
Founded by Patrick McNulty and Nick O’Rorke (both of whom worked for Reebok in the mid-90s) in 1997, Tsubo is a smallish but respected footwear brand that got its name from the Japanese meaning of ‘pressure point’.
O’Rorke’s mother, an accomplished potter in England, had invited a Japanese potter to work in residence with her for three weeks. The man had carried about a massage doll that had the word ‘Tsubo’ on it.
One day, while O’Rorke and his mother were brainstorming names for the shoe company, the Japanese guest put the doll in front of them and simply said, ‘Tsubo’. A brilliant stroke of genius, of course, as the name completely jibes with a footwear company that sought to provide comfort and relief. So dedicated and innovative is the Tsubo design team that when they could not find the proper equipment at shoe factories to fulfill their production processes, they turned to factories that primarily produce vibrators and other adult sex toys to make their shoes.

Traditional red high heels are not necessarily favored by all, but is similar to Christian Louboutin Shoes red soled shoes, not only fashion but also certainly use up (foot red auspicious), also more low-key and elegant, but the prices are just as impressive.
