Clae Twill McQueens
Around this time of year I start getting rather preoccupied with the search for a decent, sturdy pair of Winter boots. But in an effort to redress the balance a bit (before I get started on endless boot posts), let’s have a look at footwear of a more casual variety shall we?
Californian casual shoe brand Clae are still relative newcomers to the footwear scene but have been gaining a good following over the past couple of years thanks to their simple, classic styling, interesting models (of which their boots are always very good) and their use of high quality, premium materials.
So here for Autumn/Winter are their popular McQueen chukka boots in a brown twill cotton canvas and contrasting tan leather used for the heel tab, heel counter and facings. The tan treatment also runs through the lining of the boots and the stitching in the bright white rubber sole. Finishing things off and adding further contrast are the dark brown laces and leather piping around the padded ankle section.
