This baroque newcomer from Duckie Brown caught our eye recently. It’s called the Lace Shoe and it’s one of the first laser-etched dress shoes that we’ve come across. The process is old hat in the sneaker world (think Air Jordans) but it’s rarely seen elsewhere. Whatever the technological advancement that allowed for the transition to dress leather, we wholeheartedly approve. The result is a versatile shoe with a touch of swagger and an exponentially more detailed take on traditional broguing.

Maybe this is the start of a beautiful trendlet? We’d like to see this effect applied to some tried and true work-boots and maybe even a pair of leather gloves. Here’s hoping…

ALL Good Idea
