You already know why leather sucks. This "Kama" Brogue and "Apis" oxford were named after the Hindu god of love, and the Egyptian god of fertility. I wouldn't mind walking in their shoes. A round toe, and constructed in microfibre faux-leather - these shoes are perfect dressed down with jeans or with a suit on the red carpet. Also available in tan, wine, and black: $156 at BurgeoisBoheme Thanks to reader Gareth for the tip!
