The perfect white tee, the fail-safe pair of jeans, the well-fitting suit – why is it that the most basic items of a man’s clothing collection are often the most elusive? We can spend days, months or even years searching for the pieces that form the foundations of our wardrobe, and that’s after experiencing countless disappointing purchases that don’t match up to your expectations. There will always be an item that’s sold with the pretence of becoming an essential, but ultimately just doesn’t have that much sought-after perfect fit.
Thankfully, Australian brand Hobes have sensed the absence of sartorial essentials in the market, particularly honing in on a man’s need for basic footwear. Working from their bases in Melbourne and New York, Hobes have employed their simplistic aesthetic to launch a shoe collection for men that’s designed to be utterly timeless and worn everyday.
The result is a desert-style boot – available in a range of seasonal colours, they’re fashioned from luxuriously soft suede but anchored by a crepe rubber sole that’s tough enough to handle any terrain. Durable, versatile, and undoubtedly classic, it seems Hobes shoes tick all the right boxes to become a wardrobe staple.
