Shoes are a big deal to me! I love sneakers, leather shoes, boots… in fact, anything that will fit on my feet!!! 🙂 I’m currently considering what to wear for a very good friend of mines Birthday tomorrow… its a very smart affair and I have decided to rock up in my Frank Wrights! There are three things that I love most about these shoes… the quality (they are very well made and have seemed to throw everything I can at them). Secondly, I love the style of the shoe itself, its very simple and fresh design plays to that wannabe hipster in me!
Thirdly, I love the history… I love a brand that has a great, well-established history behind them and I always try my very best to support brands that have continued in their heritage skills that have lasted until today! The history of Frank is as awesome as his menswear range! Mr. Wright established “Frank Wright” in London in 1885 and originally made peg sole boots for the cavalry officers at Chelsea barracks. The brand relocated to Kettering and continued to innovate, becoming a major part of the ‘Carnaby Street’ scene in London in the 1960s. During the late ‘70s and ‘80s Frank Wright cemented its place amongst the youth culture of the day and became a wardrobe staple on the terrace scene. Today Frank Wright draws on influences from the rich heritage of the brand to create a collection of trend led footwear, classic designs with modern styling.
