Church’s Grey Suede Desert Boots

Selectism - churchs-mud-suede-chukka-boots

Yep, it’s another desert boot. We won’t be ‘off them’ for anytime in the near future, so any trend hoppers look away now. While Church’s launched their own retail site not too long ago, it’s by far the most cumbersome…

Church’s Navy Suede Sahara Desert Boot

Selectism - churchs-navy-suede-desert-boot

We don’t know what it is, but we clearly can’t enough of navy suede boots. We thought we were done after the Tricker’s pair, we really did. But, as fate would have it, we saw these leather soled Church’s Sahara…

First Look | Church’s ‘Shanghai’ Reissue

selectism - churchs-shanghai-shoe-03

While Church’s have been above the collaboration hype, they’re clearly not above the reissue hype, as this re-release of the Shanghai model shows. The Shanghai model was originally made in 1929 and was noted for its artisanal approach – these…

Church’s Keats Loafer

selectism - churchs-keats-loafer-05

Say what you want about Church’s, but they’re one brand who haven’t gone down the collaboration route. And, in a world where Turnbull & Asser is collaborating with BBC, that says a lot. Loafers have been threatening to go back…

Church’s launch E-Commerce Site

selectism - churchs-footwear-05

We should be shocked. A brand like Church’s would have surely balked at launching an online store last year, but fast forward a year and here we are. First though, the bad news. Shipping right now is limited to select…

Church’s Spring/Summer 2010

selectism - churchs-spring-2010-17

Usually, heritage brands aren’t great at Spring/Summer collections – they’re usually too clumpy for summer or there’s just something a little off about them. Church’s bucked that trend with their SS09 collection, a collection of brightly coloured suede deserts and…

Church’s Sahara Desert Boots

selectism - church-sahara-beige-desert-boots

We’ve been trumpeting the greatness of Church’s seasonal collections for a while now, but Kurt Geiger remain the only online retailer who stock it at the moment. And as luck would have it, they have one of our favourite styles…

Church’s Leonardo Boot

selectism - church-leonardo-boot-02

We do love us a good ol’ boot. Low profile shoes are all well and good, but this autumn we’re all about boots. The main problem with some of the boots we’ve seen is that they try too hard. Too…

Church’s Spring/Summer 2010 Preview

selectism - churchs-spring-2010-02

The guys (and gal) at Buckstyle turn us onto Church’s SS10 collection, which they snapped during their trip to Milan fashion week. Our first reaction was how Trickers-esque these were, looking remarkably similar to the Junya Watanabe/Trickers SS09 collab. But…

Church’s Autumn/Winter 2009

selectism - church-autumn-2009-10

Church’s are one of those labels who are known within the shoe community, but have kept a very low profile outside it. Their AW09 collection features several impeccably made and seasonally appropriate footwear but ,once again, their desert boots are…
