Recently debuted at Shipley & Halmos' latest presentation at New York Fashion Week, designer Wells Stellberger felt there was something missing in the men's footwear category when he decided to start his new line Heutchy; a well constructed shoe that straddles the line between casual and dressy.
For its inaugural collection, Heutchy offers a limited selection of styles that convey a balance of simplicity, comfort and originality. Stellberger comments, "This collection's focus is on clean, simple shapes and interesting materials to create a staple shoe for every man's wardrobe." This fall '08 line features five styles including a great short boot. Made in Spain and constructed from fine Italian leathers with matching Japanese canvas, they are available in black, gray and dark blue. "We want these shoes to have character and become more beautiful each time you wear them," the designer adds.
