Spring Preview: John Lobb

John Lobb may be known for ultra-luxe men’s dress shoes, but the Paris-based brand is expanding its sandal offering and adding casual travel shoes for spring ’10. Sandals now come in three styles: the Rapallo in calf leather, the Remo in calf and linen, and the Riva in calf or crocodile. The sandal collection retails for $860 for calf leather and $2,300 for crocodile. Travel shoes, in lightweight calf suede, available in a variety of colorways, retail for $595. And, of course, John Lobb’s mainstay dress shoes are as sumptuous as ever — selling for $1,100 to $1,700 for the main line and topping out at $6,000 for bespoke. The shoes are available at John Lobb locations, as well as high-end department stores.
