Best of Boston

2004 Best Men's Shoes

Louis Boston

Louis carries a selection of practical footwear suitable for almost anything—propping on the corner of a mahogany desk, pumping the clutch of a spanking new Maybach, or skipping off to Ibiza for a weekend of clubbing. Some of the brands, like Prada and Puma, you’ll recognize; others, like Kiton and Vass (they’re handmade in Budapest), you probably won’t. Every style will turn heads as surely as a bespoke Italian suit or comely companion.
