It’s Good to be King

Michael Toschi OndaOn the drive home for Thanksgiving, I stopped by the Michael Toschi warehouse to pick up some shoes for customers, when the Warehouse Manager said he had some things he wanted to show me. Lucky for me, I happen to be a size 9, which is their sample size. Tonight, he showed me some prototyped Ondas in suede in a few different colors. I wouldn’t say orange suede was at the top of my wish list, nor would I wear them with charcoal herringbone trousers, but I suspect I’ll be getting use out of these…

If you have yet to own a pair of Ondas, you don’t know what a real moccasin should feel like. It’s easy to question why a pair of shoes so unstructured could cost $425 until you own a pair. Then you start debating which color to get next.
