Step in Style In J Shoes’ New Boutique

The buzz: The British footwear label, known for its raw and modern approach and trademark quality leather footwear, has opened its first ever stand-alone boutique in Singapore.
The vibe: The 958 sq. ft. space might not seem that big, but its carefully laid product displays and shelving allow for ample roving. Opting for a classic urban concept, with brick walls, stairs and random wooden panels as décor, the boutique captures the artisan industrial feel that takes you back to J Shoes’ edgy British roots.
The goods: For both men and women, the shoes feature durable leather exteriors and boast exceptional toughness as well as casual comfort. For the men, the line of shoes and boots befits those looking for a rugged industrial style. The Tourer boots ($229) for example, with their seasoned skin and detailed craftsmanship, are made for regular wear. As for the ladies, the boots, shoes and heels are stylish and durable; including the Sidesaddle suede wedged heels ($219) made for the modern woman on the go.
Why you’ll be back: Their footwear is road-tested back in damp, cold and muddy England, so you can rest assured these shoes will last.
