Just bought my third pair of Jacoform shoes, an uber bargain aswell.
These being the Nubuck 332 model up top. These may have that ugly-cool, nerdy appeal about them, and the fact that the masses cannot see the fuss is yet another attraction, plus they can be a little hard to source aswell. All that is all well and good, but the most important thing is they are really comfy footwear. Quite literally an orthopedic shoe, this Danish cult brand of sorts developed in the late 60s by Professor Jurgen Keller, who wanted to make an anatomically ideal health-shoe based on the 'beach walk' theory - i.e. wearing these shoes is akin to being as comfortable as walking barefoot in damp sand. With a rigorous hand crafted method of manufacture, seeing each pair going through more than 200 manufacturing steps and very strict quality control.
