My Favorite Vintage Shoes

I thought to add a dose of menswear to the blog after being away for so long and readers who have mailed me requesting to add more menswear stories. One Nigerian Boy is not strictly for women, its FASHION period.

As I continue to advance in age I find that I like proper dress shoes more than any other kind of footwear. My tastes are so deep that if I walked into a roomful of people it’s probably only the elderly ones that would fancy my grandpa looking shoes.

My favorite shoes in my wardrobe are all vintage and over 10 years old each from the look you sef go know and I got them all from my coded guy at his bend down select roadside stall somewhere on Lagos island.
 These tassel loafers are my favorite of the pack and they are by Nunn Bush, known for quality and craftsmanship.
These are Tombelli, I don’t need to tell you that they are Italian kmt. I wear them the most out of the shoes featured here. These shoes give me pure oxygen, even though at first they were sort of tight on the feet.
The vintage levels wan kill dis one, so tey d name sef don peel comot  fact these shoes are sort of ugly at first sight and cool later makes them one of my favorites. I mostly wear shoes without socks so the holes help with proper aeration.
