Paul smith has released a great suede moccasin boot. There are plenty of boat-shoes, boots and moccasins on the market right now, but when one comes along that is so well conceived people are bound to take notice. The simple quality of construction and well thought out design are synonymous with the Paul Smith name, but the great thing about this boot is it’s lack of excess. There are no beads flying, no tassels flopping, and nothing that’s taking away more than it’s giving to the design.
