Spring is the perfect time to refresh your shoe collection and add some interest to the mix. Whether the warm weather will find you hosting gatherings in the park with your friends or embracing downtown New York strolls on the regular, make sure you do all of these things with style. The made-by-hand men’s shoe line n.d.c. has your back (and your feet, obviously). We highlight our favorite pairs from the spring lookbook below.
Our favorite picks…
Espadrilles: Take a stroll along the French Riviera in the 1960s with these flexible, relaxed and easy espadrilles. Made with the flexible and light ‘Strobel’ construction (where the upper and insole are stitched toether), the shoes are slip-lasted and stitched to the leather outsole with natural yute trimming the edge.
Foundation: Reminiscent of 1960′s London’s city-gent style, these elegantly shaped rejuvenated classics belong in every man’s wardrobe.
Faderless Toecup Son
Goodyear: The Goodyear line goes back to the beginning of the n.d.c. story when designer Enrique washed his pair of n.d.c. Goodyear brogues in his home washing machine after deciding that they looked just a little too perfect. The esult was like nothing that has been seen before on the market: beaten-up, washed shoes with a whole personality of their own.

We’re bringing window shopper back just in time for the gorgeous spring-summer window displays of New York’s finest denim retailers! Our latest stop was at Madewell in Soho, where the colorful decor and spring-y ensembles had us visualizing our escapes from the city in serious style. The front window was decorated in pom-poms and fringe, and while that may sound like a kid’s birthday party, the aforementioned frou-frou was done in a fun spectrum of jewel tones, making it super classy. Outfits included basic separates like denim shorts & lace tops, styled with woven hats and bright cardigans. Favorite accessories included a floral-print silk scarf and denim-textured espadrilles. Drooling yet?
