The Material Boy #383

Mihara Yasuhiro Ankle Strap Backless Lace-ups

At last, I found pics of one of my most favoured shoes for the season. Ever since I spotted them in Club 21 Mens at Four Seasons Hotel Singapore, I have been so tempted to buy these. But due to restricted budgets I have set myself, this pair of lace-ups is still on my wishlist. I am just waiting for the right time to make my 'wishes' come true.

If you live outside of Singapore, grab your hands on them from Browns Fashion, who is an exclusive retailer for Mihara Yasuhiro in UK, but they do ship international.

I love the leather strap wrapping around the ankles when worn, adds a unique look and works exceptionally well with shorts or rolled up pants. A hybrid between lace-ups and sandals (with the missing back part of the shoe), it takes you from casual to formal occassions with ease:-) I also love the deliberate washed effect on the leather which adds to the character. Definitely indifferent. The only setback, perhaps is the shoes do not look great under regular length pants or jeans. You must be ready to expose your ankles for the look to work. But here in Singapore, wearing shorts is so normal, this should not be a problem.

Retail price: £550. Where to buy: Browns Fashion
