[Metallic & Black]
A subtle banker's shoe with a trimmed leather sole, The Brandenburg is the shoe for those seeking to be victorious on the battlefield of board meetings (and bowling alleys). Produced in a Vietnamese factory, which is owned by Japanese shoe-makers, who were trained in England using 19th century traditional methods, the Gateways are some of the most classically fabricated (and international) shoes we have made in recent years. Featuring waxy Italian leathers that glow of antiquity on a classic capped toe pattern, the Brandenburg ensures you walk home with your head held high (and hopefully all three points).
*Leather soles can be slippery at first, and should not be worn in heavy wet weather, or on salted sidewalks as they may compromise the strength and structure of the sole. Many buyers choose to topy leather soles to remedy this.

Shawn and Catherine from our Washington DC store says:
Because the Brandenburgs have a tapered toe, most people size up a half size for the best fit.

Anton Jungherr from New York City:
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!
