Voici une chaussure de banquier raffinée avec une semelle de cuir taillée. Brandeburg est conçue pour ceux qui cherchent à être victorieux sur le champ de bataille que sont les salles de réunions (et les allées de quilles). Elle a été fabriquée dans une manufacture vietnamienne qui appartient à des fabricants de chaussures japonais, qui eux, ont été formés en Angleterre selon les méthodes traditionnelles du 19e siècle. C'est ainsi que les Gateways se démarquent, car voilà plusieurs années qu'on n'avait point créé une collection de fabrication aussi classique (et internationale).
D'un cuir ciré italien reluisant des teintes d'antiquité avec un bout décoré d'un motif classique, soyez assurés qu'avec la chaussure Brandeburg, vous serez assurés de rentrer chez vous la tête haute.
*Ces semelles de cuir peuvent être très glissantes et ne devraient être portées par un temps très pluvieux, ni sur les trottoirs couverts de sel, car la solidité et structure de la semelle pourraient être compromise. Plusieurs acheteurs choisissent d'ajouter une surface adhérente par mesure de sécurité.

Not as green as in the photo, more of a green-grey but still an awesome shoe. Seems to scuff easily because it's such a light color and I've not yet found exactly the right color polish. Very comfortable. Rubber toppy on the sole highly recommended.

Fit was very satisfactory; very comfortable (break-in period was about 1 hour).
Got these in burnt orange, but they are dark enough to pass for orange-brown. I like it, but I also wish these were available in a more traditional medium brown so I could cover my bases.

This is P.S.from my last post. I had the backs of my shoes softened by the wonderful Fluevog people, and now they are very comfortable!!! Plus, I keep getting compliments every day, even from children!!!

Just got pair of these in light blue 2 days ago. Huge thank-you to Tomas from Gastown store!! This is my second pair of Fluevogs. Very beautiful and stylish, getting lots of compliments on these. Now the bad part: very hard sole, no padding or arch support, and the shoes are cutting painfully into the back of my heels, even though the size is right. So while my 1st pair (Truth) is without a doubt is the most comfortable shoes EVER - these are not. I am looking very stylish while I am limping along...

I bought the Brandenburgs in burnt orange and they look fantastic. The shoes fit really well (true to size), and I've received a lot of compliments on them. When I took my Brandenburgs to a shoe maintenance store (for a polish and shine), the owner said that the shoes were very well-made and expensive-looking, and that the leather was very nice but "sensitive"... meaning that because the leather is a light colour, if I get a stain on them, it'll be hard to get rid of it. I plan on taking care of these babies but I thought that I'd mention it, in case anyone is concerned about the leather and colouring. I don't suppose that it would be an issue for darker colours though.

Love the slick new leather soles!
So, i've had a great pair of the angel soled brandenbergs for about 2 years now and I can tell you without hesitation that these are even better. Recently i got the green pair, tossed in some purple laces and have caused quite the stir wearing them around NYC.
This leather is softer than the previous brandenbergs, so the break in time is about halved, and the fit seems a little easier on the width. If you have a slim foot you may even be able to go down a half size, but if not stick with your normal size.
Get these and break them in on the dance floor!
