British refinement meets Japanese style with this collaboration between George Cox and BAL on these Longwing brogues. Designed exclusively for the upcoming opening of BAL’s flagship store in Meguro-ku, Tokyo, these shoes feature stylish suede uppers in that classic British style – however the soles feature a jagged cut ripped straight from a boat shoe. The result is a modern, functional brogue. The brogues come in three colorways, and will be released exclusively at BAL Tokyo on August 28th, 2010.
