Here is the lookbook for the Spring/Summer collection from British shoe maker Mr. Hare.  We recently showed you the new King Tubby design and here we get a closer look at the full range which includes saddle shoe, brogue, tassle loafer and the soon to be ubiquitous suede buck designs.

Mr. Hare is definitely a brand to watch.  The smarter aesthetic and high price tag would suggest high end fashion or middle aged men, but by appropriating the best men’s footwear designs from the last 100 years and twisting them to produce thoroughly modern looks they have created distinct footwear that wouldn’t look out of place on the feet of the younger, more discerning streetwear fan.   We have seen casual (non-sports related) footwear make a big comeback over the last couple of years , and its interesting to see someone take a similar approach to formal footwear.
