florsheim by duckie brown’s fall 2012 collection continues to showcase the craftsmanship and heritage of the florsheim brand while providing a modern take on classic styles. designers daniel silver and steven cox of the fashion-forward men's label duckie brown present a fresh viewpoint on florsheim’s traditional footwear, combining unique style with quality craftsmanship. focusing on a disheveled, but elegant tone for the season, the collection reinterprets formal footwear and core styles from the florsheim archives for the contemporary male who cares. embellished details on the key style for the season, the beaded brogue, reflects the brand’s signature commitment to modern footwear. inset on the upper sole with intricate small beads, it's a daring evolution on a staple in men’s footwear.

another model from the florsheim by duckie brown fall 2012 collection that we particularly like is the lace ludgate boot. the use of laser-cut leather to achieve the appearance of delicate lace as well as the embossed floral pattern adds a textural depth to the collection. emphasizing a more tonal and matte color palette, the boots' deep shades of brick, brown, and sage, balance out the pops of vibrant color on the beaded brogue. the florsheim by duckie brown fall 2012 collection is available at select stores across the u.s., including fred segal feet [los angeles], gimme shoes [san francisco], neiman marcus [chicago], barneys co-op [miami] and odin [new york].
