Colin featured the YMC snakeskin deck shoes back in February and they’ve proved pretty popular with our readers. Mark Quinn from Baluba is quite the clothes horse, and he started off the trend by sending us a picture of his YMCs, (love to see the rest of the jeans!) Daniel Jenkins, from the Monmouth store Daniel Jenkins sent us an amazing picture featuring him wearing the shoes, and sporting what is possibly the best facial expression ever.

Daniel says: “My girlfriend has look of regret each time I wear them out with her because we always get stopped about them. A busload of Japanese tourists stopped on Mile End road to take photos of me in them.”

YMC’s snake-effect deck shoes: a new twist on old faithful

By Colin Chapman on February 26th, 2009

ymc0087gry_M1.jpgThe predicted standoff between desert boot and deck shoe as Spring/Summer shoe of choice has yet to be seen. To my mind the deck shoe would win anyhow – it actually looks better as it gets battered with age and can be worn with thick socks on chilly days or show off a tanned ankle on others. So, it may be (at least) the second S/S we’ve seen the preppy choice of footwear but there’s no sign of them disappearing on the street.

And now YMC have created a sublime option – the snakeskin effect deck shoe. YMC have always had the touch with shoes and remain unaffected by trends, following a confident path that alway spells cool. Available from Liberty’s men’s shoe department or from OkiNi online. Incidentally, they’re snake-effect leather not real snakeskin – just in case you have reptile sympathies, or are just plain squeamish.
